Becky and I are both from PA, so we just took a 7 hour trip home (from NC to PA) to see our families (my parents and some of her family still live there). The trips are getting longer and longer. When we first went back to PA, before having kids, we made it in 5 hours, 20 minutes. Our latest trip (four children later): 7 hours. We’ve learned a thing or two about traveling with kids.
