The drive was the deal-breaker. Twelve hours, each way. Snacks did not stop the whining. The Wiggles did not stop the whining. New Dollar Store toys did not stop the whining. Only stopping the car stopped the whining.
On a positive note, the twins loved the water. They are beachy babies, just like their Momma. And they are Fearless. If we weren't right there to stop them, they would have waded in and kept on going.
