don't forget about the little things that can add up fast -especially with kids. keep a cooler stocked with ice for drinks or water - you can make kool aid - and stuff to make sandwiches. Road side restaurant and things are really expensive. Also stop at a dollar store for cheap travel toys instead of giving in to all those money draining activities on the way an added benefit to this is a rest area will offer opportunities for them to work off energy while you relax and difinitely invest in a roo cup from kangaroo for the entire family they are durable, have lock tight lids and can be refilled at any kangaroo all summer long for $.25 not to mention you can get a different color straw for each family member so everyone knows which cup is theirs.
