On the Road with the iPad 2

We took a trip to San Diego last weekend to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The iPad 2 was an incredible addition to the family vacation in two ways:

1. Stella passed a few hours of the car ride watching episodes of Yo Gabba Gabba that I downloaded before the trip. The Targus case wedged perfectly in between the driver and passenger seats to give her a prime viewing angle. (“…She’s pink and happy!”)



2. We included family when Stella took her first few bites of cake! I had to use my iPhone for FaceTime instead of the iPad because the hotel wi-fi connection wasn’t working well (and neither was tethering). Other than having a slightly smaller screen on our end, it worked out OK to swap the devices and record using the iPad. Stella was more interested in cake than her audience anyway, but the grandparents were happy to help celebrate another one of her “firsts.” (So were we!)
