It seemed like a good idea at the time... grabbing a couple of maps and guide books and piling the kids in the car to hit the open road.  But now it's almost time to go and while you're excited to stop and see The World's Largest Ball of Twine , you're not so sure about days in the car with fighting, screaming, cranky kids who have no interest at all in The World's Largest Ball of Twine.

Don't worry... you can still take steps to make sure your trip is an enjoyable one and that everyone still loves each other when they get home.
