Surviving summer sports: How do you do it?

Summer is a crazy time for parents and athletes. There’s so many games, sometimes multiple sports, and often multiple kids. So how does everyone survive it?

It’s not so bad for us right now. We’ve got two in baseball, but they’re pretty young, so practices are limited and the games are always at the same place. We survive by having the car pre-loaded with chairs, treats and the baseball bag. I’ve got a bag packed with toys for the littlest one, more treats, sunscreen and bug spray.

This is minor for what some of you deal with, so fill us in. Do you know where the best places are to eat when you travel? Are your vacations planned around games? Do you have friends who help out with car pooling?
