We are headed on a road trip -- destination Provence.
Can you feel the excited energy through your monitor?
One teeny, tiny, ensy, little concern -- Young One.
While our usual group of travel buddies are all folks with young children, the group that we will rendevous with this time are either all childless or haven't had little people around for years. Eight adults -- one almost six-year-old Young One. Not smart. I know. Probably even stupid. These folks will be absolutely delightful with her, but she will quickly bore of them and wish there was another almost six year old along for the adventure.
The good news is that we are staying in a gîte with a huge yard; the other good news is that we don't have to spend every waking second with the group. Flexibility is on our side. The best news is that it's Provence in the spring, and well. . . what was the problem?
So, tell me: If you were packing the car for a week in Provence, in the area of Avignon . . . what would you put in it to help out with this potentail issue?
I've got the portable DVD player, a scooter, a ball, a camera for her exclusive use, books, a few new art supply surprises, and even an experiment or two lined up.
What would you bring?
