We know. A 2 hour drive isn't that long of a road trip. But when you have a toddler, your 2 hour trip can easily double into 4. And it was crucial that we made it to San Diego in 2 hours since we had The Color Run to attend. To be honest, car trips can just vary from one trip to the next. We can drive 50 miles away & Michael will be fine one day but it all changes the next day on a short drive to CVS. It all depends on the day. So we looked at this trip as we looked at our flights- just prepare yourself. We had old toys, new ones from The Dollar Tree, iPad & iPhones ready and charged, and the best form of entertainment with us- Michael's Grandma.
