5 Things To Take On Vacation (For The Car Ride) – Life Changing!
Here are 5 things that are making our trip so much easier!
Oh where would we be without them? We have four kids, so we used our two DVD players on the backs of the drivers & passenger’s seat to play these movies. The kids in the back can see them, too.

Hi! I'm Becky! Mom to my 4 little ones! I blog at Your Modern Family about raising our kids, organizing our home and saving money. I was a teacher and I am now a part-time play therapist, so I love to share ideas about children. I am also the author of Potty Train in a Weekend, a complete guide to potty training your child in three days. I am excited to share with you!
