We complained bitterly about egg salad or baloney sandwich picnics in cemeterys with my Dad on our road trips, wishing we could go to McDonald's instead - but now we joke about them ... and MY kids think that sounds like fun ...We never stopped at cemeteries, but we had a lot of pepperoni with mustard sandwiches in the van or at rest stops. I remember one in Vicksburg where we wouldn't stand on the curb while my Dad tried to park (not sure why we had to get out of the car, maybe it was a tight fit) and my parents were screaming at us, and we were trying to explain why we were disobeying, but they wouldn't hear it. My sister and I finally stood on the curb, and each got bit by hundreds of fire ants... OUCH!
I'm really enjoying your review so far! Thanks for taking the time to do such a detailed review - and I love the kitchy roadside stops - they do break up the drive and you're making great memories for your boys --- they may complain now, but years from now, they'll tell their kids about the goofy road trips they took with their Dads and I bet they won't be complaining -Hate to hijack but that just sounds totally awesome. I love cemetery's. OP keep up the good work on the review.

I prefer a park over a cemetery, but Dad had a good point - cemeterys are quiet, free of charge, and usually there is plenty of room to move around and stretch those road-weary lege. Plus, we did see some pretty cool headstones.
