Now to get to my mum and dad's, you have to drive a long way - around 700km or 8 hours depending on how many times you stop to refuel, eat or have a run around to stretch your legs. So I snapped a photo of what the girls got up to in the car on the way.
Amber had her own stash of DVD's which she played on our headrest DVD players. She also coloured, read, and played with Sophia (read fought and yelled). Sophia on the other hand, had her own stash of DVD's to watch on her own screen, had books to read, toys to play with, and Elmo phone which she constantly rang her Gramma on, Bear and Bun Bun to cuddle and fall asleep with and some pens and paper to colour in (when she wasn't colouring in her own hands and arms)
Thankfully both girls are really good travellers and even I managed to fall asleep (we left at 4am in the morning). The trip was good, nice and cool due to all the rain. Not to many road works or traffic and we were at our destination in no time ready to start the festivities!
