Traveling with an iPad

We've only had our iPad* for a few months, and I already can't imagine life without it. Which is probably a real testament to this device, because despite having a blog and now an iPad, I'm really not very techie. If you saw my cell phone, you would think we had all traveled back in time to at least 2001. We have found the iPad to be particularly helpful while traveling--it is a source of entertainment, our GPS, and a "let's look that up" device while on the road. Someday I'll do a post on favorite iPad apps while traveling (I'm still in research mode on that), but until then, I'll give you a sneak peak at how we put it to use entertaining the arrow during last week's flight.

While he's usually pretty happy to look at books or color while flying, our return trip fell during his usual naptime. It was pretty clear that he wasn't going to curl up on our lap and doze off on this trip, so it was nice to have something with which he could still relax and settle down. My husband and I even got to indulge in some adult conversation while the arrow was singing along with his buddies from Yo Gabba Gabba. I call that a win, win for everyone.

This post is a part of You Capture at I Should Be Folding Laundry. This week's theme is technology. I'm also linking up to Things I Love Thursday at The Diaper Diaries.
