- TLO loves a show called Mighty Machines, so I was sure to bring plenty of episodes on DVD. My sister let me borrow her portable DVD player and remote- a lifesaver!
- This T.S. Shure Barnyard Friends Magnetic Tin Playset occupied TLO through a good part of Minnesota. Hands on, imaginative, and easily contained. What's not to love?
- Before we left I downloaded the Life 360 app on my smartphone. I invited my mom, mother-in-law, sister, and sister-in-law to join "my circle" and the app shows my location as we travel across the country. My family loves seeing where we are and knowing we are safe. We can also message and send pictures within the app. It has been an easy, free way for us to stay in touch on this extended trip.
They caught on to my tricks after a while. In my defense, I actually did want to take pictures of everything!
