My husband and I are taking a 7 hour road trip with a 8 month old and a two year old (which actually will be more like 10-11 hour road trip). Any suggestions for keeping our sanity and helping the kids to be happy?Answer Question

We drove on a lot of long trips when our kids were babies. I even did the 350 mile trip from my in-laws' home alone with 3 kids (3, almost 2 and 8 months). If you're lucky they will sleep most of the way. My kids always did. We also stopped every few hours for potty breaks or to feed the baby. And we stopped about half way through at a sit down resturaunt to eat or we'd go to Wal-mart and walk around for an hour to stretch.
Over the summer we drove cross country from Chicago to Washington State with 5 kids (10, 8, 7, 4 and 4 weeks at the time).
