Almost two weeks ago we said, what the heck, and drove our way down the west coast. I literally googled "are long car rides a form of torture for toddlers?" And "20 ways to entertain a toddler in the car." We packed our car with just about all of our belongings and kept Parker entertained with his tablet full of tv shows, a few new books and LeapFrog games. This kid, I tell ya... he was SUCH a champ. We were so dang relieved and so thankful.
We left at 4am so Parker would just go right back to sleep, which he did until about 7:30am. And that tablet, that I swore I would never give my child... LIFESAVER! I take back every comment I previously made about those things. We propped it on the back of the headrest and we suddenly became "one of those" cars with the tv. Whatever! We managed to make only one stop for lunch and gas and then...
First stop, San Fran! Well, more like Tiburon (on the other side of the golden gate bridge). After driving over 10 hours the last thing we wanted was a big city to sleep in. And boy were we right.
Tiburon is SO charming, so relaxed and very quiet. Just what we were hoping for.
