We’re heading out to visit relatives this week, along with everyone else in the US. Ours live in New York, so we have a 5 hour car ride. My little son has taken to throwing up during any car trip longer than 15 minutes. We will be packing many, many changes of small clothing, plus a towel.

Happy Thanksgiving! Where are you going?

Will this be our future?
