Any fall travel plans? We are, of course, trying to find a last minute location for Thanksgiving. It’s been a busy summer and fall so far, and we haven’t planned well. But, we love going away for a multi-generational trip over Thanksgiving, so I’ll keep you updated.
We’re always looking for great travel games for the kids. We recently became familiar with a great company, SmartGames, and when I saw that they offered travel games, I knew I wanted to check them out.
