Just back from the annual Xmas road trip. Melbourne to Tamworth with a (child free!) new year side trip to the Byron Bay area and back again. Over 3500 kms all up. It's a long way, especially with two kids and a dog in the back seat. But there is also something totally bonding about it. As a family we have spent a lot of this year apart due to my and Natalies work commitments so there was something cool about the family being 'forced' together in a confined space for hours and hours cruising across the country.
Despite the groaning and the occasional "Are we there yet!?" I think secretly the kids love it. I know I do.
