One of the thing that I am working on this week is trying to plan our rest stops and food breaks during the 9 or so hour drive to New Orleans. It is hard to pin exact stops down because there are so many things that can slow us down. However, having a few pre planned options always makes me feels better.
On our last trip, we all had fun at one of our impromptu rest stops. The kids ran around, collected pine cones, and had fun exploring the little rest stop on the side of the highway. It was certainly a good break from driving... for everyone!
