Portable DVD players (thank you Dawn for letting us borrow yours!) and All-Natural Cheetoh's.
We took our first road trip the first week of August and Ian survived (and so did mommy and daddy). I have to say I was dreading an almost 11 hour road trip to Kentucky (and that's only stopping for gas - add multiple stops to change dirty diapers and you've got yourself a 12 hour trip), but Ian did GREAT! I'm sure this was largely due to the hours of Baby Einstein we watched and the Cheetohs I kept handing him. But hey, who am I to complain if he didn't even make a whimper. I'll take it. Even if he only slept an hour and forty-five minutes each way.
I have to say I think he's pretty cute :)
All in all, I would say this was a very successful first road trip. Especially when you consider the longest he'd ever been in the car prior to this trip was 45 minutes to Grandma and Pops house.
