My wonderful 50 something mother and her long time fiancee' (they live in Sacramento, CA) have decided to tie the knot this summer. The problem: they're doing it in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada AND they want us to attend and bring our children. I am very excited and happy, but the idea of traveling hundreds of miles (we live in Louisiana) with a 6 year old and a 17 month old to the "gambling mecca of the universe" makes my stomach queesy.
Now, I have traveled long distances in the past with both of them (once to Walt Disney World and the other for 9 1/2 hours evacauting Hurricane Gustav to north Arkansas) but we drove in our gas guzzling SUV. This time, we have decided an alternate means of travel. My question: Are there any moms out there that can give me the pros and cons to traveling on either train or plane? I want every horror story imaginable (vomiting, motion sickness, ear popping, or anything that you would never ever want to experience again) that involves your children on either one. I mean it. I need this. I have flown several times before and I am terrified of flying. But, I am afraid that they will be terrified too. And the idea of me not being able to tell the pilot to land the plane because my child(ren) are scared literally makes me panic. Thank you in advance and God bless you and your families!!! :)
