Are we there yet? Road Trip Apps

altAre we there yet? Those words may be as much a part of summer vacation as popsicles and sunscreen.

Whether it's a multi-day trek across state lines or an afternoon jaunt to grandma's house there's a good chance you're going to find yourself on a family road trip before summer's end. It doesn't matter how many miles you have to cover, the potential for boredom is the same. As a mom of four, I crave peace and quiet when we're driving. Reading books only lasts for so long and if it ends up taking an electronic device to keep the peace for a little bit, then so be it! Here's a list of apps that will help pass the time and kill boredom while you're all together in the car. You might even find your children getting along while they play. I've also included my favorite app for those other inevitable road trip words – "Mom, I have to go to the bathroom!"
