Have you seen the price of airline tickets this summer? Especially for a family of five? Slowly, we have begun wrapping our brains (and backsides) around the idea of a twenty hour road trip that will take us halfway across America to the sanctuary of the grandparents’ waiting arms.

“Old McDonald had a farm.”

“Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow.”

“You can’t ride in my little red wagon.”

And with a cooler full of nourishment, we’ll be off. Along the way we hope to fill those twenty hours with a variety of audio books, movies, car bingo, alphabet games and naps (hopefully).
