You're getting ready for that family road trip, you and your kids have been looking forward to it for months. They can't wait to get there and enjoy all those family vacation things you all love to do... They are excited, you are excited, you are really looking forward to leaving the day to day worries behind for a while and just enjoy some good old fashioned family time.

There's just one more hurdle to overcome, the actual drive itself.

It's not that your kids don't travel well, but lets face it, while License Plate Bingo, Mad Libs, Coloring Books, DVD Players and Game Systems certainly make long trips a lot easier on us parents than our parents had it with us (I can't be the only one who can remember the threats of "Don't make me pull this car over" when us kids in the back were past our traveling tolerances), but still after hours strapped into that seat, your little Prince or Princess has a lot of pent up energy and needs to just get moving around.

You need to stop to eat anyway, so wouldn't it be great to be able to stop somewhere where you know they can get a little exercise in as well?? Not only that, put actually plan ahead, so you knew exactly where you could stop that would offer this down the road?

How abou the old classic "I GOTTA GO!"? You were just, finally making some good time, you really don't want to get off at the next exit and hunt down a bathroom, if you don't have to.. what if you knew the next rest area was only 15 minutes away?? So you could avoid actually leaving the interstate and that desperate hunt for a bathroom... hopefully one that isn't a toxic waste dump as well?

If you have dealt with these issues, like I have, and would love to have something that helps you be the super extra awesome parent you know you are, and make the actual road trip portion a bit easier on yourself, then go ahead and add this App to your collection today.
