Remember the time not so long ago when you and your partner tossed a few things in a bag and hit the road?
Ahh, yes, that was the sweet, easy, breezy time before your family packing list included a car seat, stroller, portable crib, stuffed animals, toys, crayons, books, and, finally, ridiculous amounts of emergency snacks to help ward off boredom and bouts of extreme crankiness.
Oh my, how travel has changed.
