Agreed, not much help in the trip area, but pack snacks, there will be frequent bathroom stops, especially right after you stop and get back on the road, lol. Dvds, or downloads a must, rain gear for the kido, and make sure your first aid kit is updated. Kids by definition will scrape something and need a bandaid that has some animal on it. Otherwise have fun, and I second the idea of a campgeound with a pool/ lake, even for a one nighter. Also, make sure the kido is cool showering in the confert stations. Mine at 9 and 10 just started using them. Before that she would never go shower in the confert station. Another, good idea, is battery powered glow sticks, for nighttime.

When we traveled with our grandkids, we went to AAA, and my daughter and her husband and my husband and myself, signed papers allowing us to take the kids to the hospital and get treatment, just in case we needed too. Now, we had a situation where the kids live in another country, so we were afraid me might run into issues. Probably overkill, but it gave me peace of mind. It only took about twenty minutes to do.

Kids usually have a different perspective on what they like than we adults might appreciate. I know I wasn't a fan of looking at sites from the seat of a car and could only wait until we got somewhere that I could get out and play. While watching a few geysers erupt or visiting some of the thermal features in Yellowstone is something everyone should experience while young, don't miss out on finding ways to view the wildlife (from a safe distance of course). In Yellowstone, there are various places to observe elk, buffalo and even the occasional moose. Go to Fishing Bridge to see the trout swimming. Heck, a picnic on the lake shore is also something kids really like.

For some other caves to visit, how about the Black Hills? Both Jewel Cave and Wind Cave are interesting for young kids and there are buffalo herds at Custer State Park. Of course Mt. Rushmore is worth some time also. Head from there south to Denver.

Wherever you stay, make reservations NOW as popular destinations are already mostly booked for the summer.
