$20 in Twin Falls

You know how it goes. Long car ride. Two hours from home and your kids are bored. So they say they’re hungry.

The trip doesn’t need you to spend any more money but stopping to eat probably isn’t a bad idea.

Instead of pulling over and letting the kids pick what they wanted I gave them $20 and a challenge to find a way for all six people in the family to get something to eat.

There was some collaboration, but no fighting. The kids actually pulled it off. Had they picked out what they wanted without the rules I set up, it would have cost me $40.

Adding a few simple rules turned this part of the trip into a game and gave us a great family memory.
