Travel Tips for Families On The Go
Family in Car

When traveling with kids, it can be hard to keep them entertained. Here are a few fun games that you can play during family road trip. These games are sure to keep them amused and give everyone quality family time.
  • Count the license plates from out-of-state: whoever gets the most (says the name of the state first) wins after a certain time period, i.e., 15 minutes, a half-hour, etc.
  • V-Dub: person who sees the most Volkswagen Beetles and says it first within a certain time period wins.
  • Alphabet: try to get through the whole alphabet by spotting letters on billboards, license plates, road signs, etc.
  • Rest Stop Games: some great items to have on hand for those rest stops are: a beach ball, Frisbee, jump rope, chalk for hop scotch; all of these encourage movement.

I just returned from Alexandria Virginia where I attended our new distributor (NBN) conference, we are so glad to be working with them. They are one of the largest distributers in US, Canada and Spanish speaking world. Their representatives include Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Walden Books all of which are very enthusiastic about the B&B guide!

Being in Alexandria during the Cherry Blossom festival was absolutely incredible. This small city dating from 1600, once home to our nation's capital and many illustrious figures, the revolutionary days are incredibly well restored while still maintaining a fresh and modern feel, which makes for an absolute marvelous juxtaposition. The blossoms were out in full force, not just cherries but dogwood, red bud, apple and more.
