My little family and my brother, Tim, embarked on a 10 hour car trip to Ocean City, Maryland--with the 3 year old! His longest car trip prior to this was maybe 3 hours. He was a traveling rock star!
Fun dips turned his whole mouth green! And glow in the dark insects were a huge hit.
Books on CD were also great, but I must say, he rocked it out of the park.
So, he has never been to the ocean before, but I think you can tell that he loved it.
I love the innocence of kids. After this long anticipated and discussed adventure and fatiguing road trip, he thought we were going home after just a few hours! Kids are so much more patient of small events than I am. I want it to be worth it. I don't think 10 hours for 2 hours is worth it, but he does. Maybe a little lesson for me in all of this.
What marks the official start of summer for you?
