On your drive to Orlando, Florida...more often than not, you have been traveling down the Florida Turnpike. If so, you may have also witnessed a sign for Toll/State Road 429.

Even though my opinion differs, this is the choice I usually get talked into. Here are a few of my tipsand tricks that keeps the family happy [most of the time]. 1. On-The-Road Activities: Get them pumped up about the drive, just as much as the destination. To help accomplish this, I bought my children each a plastic tote, to fill with car activities such as stickers, toys and art projects. Then, we let the kids decorate their box to their liking. One of my daughters chose classic Disney characters and the other was creative with Star Wars theming. We went to their room and choose some of their favorite toys that would entertain them for 10 minutes or more: books, magnetic […]
