So. One of the benefits to family reunions in the state I live in is that we get to drive to them. Maybe you’re wondering why driving would be so great, I mean, 6 hours in the car with two toddlers doesn’t seem like a fabulous time does it? No. BUT. When you drive you can jam your car full of stuff to make life convenient and also more fun. For instance? I hauled 4 pack-n-plays up to the reunion so that we would have enough baby sleeping space for babies arriving by plane. Convenient, yes? Yes.
Know what else I brought? A karaoke machine. Obviously you would never take one of these on a flight, but we had room in the car so WHY NOT? And you guys, it was so fun! (Side note: yes it IS possible to have fun with karaoke, even if NOBODY is drinking.) Because come on. How often do you get to see your parents sing a duet of Summer Nights?
