We recently made our first road trip as a family of 7! A good friend, Scott, abandoned us . . .err I mean he left to go to school in Fayetteville a few years ago. Lucky for him (not so much for us) he met a great girl and they recently got married and plan to live near Fayetteville (the part that's bad for us). Although it was about a 5 hour drive and would require an overnight stay we loaded up the van and I do mean LOADED and headed that way. Anyone who believes in travelling light does not have 5 children. We had to have backup wedding outfits plus more comfortable travelling clothes. We also took Henry's moses basket and the pack and play to provide a place for Ben to sleep. Add in most of the cloth diapers we own and the "trunk" of the van was stacked!
