I've done some writing in the car (not as much as i would have liked, but hey! Europe to look at!) I've also been the family flight attendant --doling out water, snacks, and entertainment options as we go.
The four kids (all over 5'9") have dealt admirably with very tight quarters in this itty bitty van. They've slept, watched DVDs on our two little portable DVD players we brought with us, listened to music or books on ipods, and played raucous games together on the ipad. Here they are playing a game called 'Badlands' together.
