Remember family road trips with you were a kid?
Driving along with the music set to background noise, talking and laughing with your family, playing the license plate game, singing songs and sleeping if you were lucky?
All you need to pack were your clothes, toiletries, some toys, snacks, and yourself.
While packing for our road trip tomorrow I discovered a mess that we NEVER had to deal with when we were kids.
Electronics and their chargers.
Those things need their own luggage!
We have 2 cell phones, 2 Nintendo DSs, 3 iPods, and a nook. All have different chargers and all are necessities when going on vacation. I know this is the bare minimum and that most families have double what we have.
So sad that Road trips now consist of putting some ear buds in or turning up the radio to drown out the annoying noise of everyone else in the car.
Hopefully when we reach our destination we can forget about our electronic companions and spend some quality time with our beloved, irreplaceable human companions.
