    I'd be ok with it. I would plan to stop at the 2 hour mark, for 20-30 minutes. Then only have an hour to go after the stop. I'd leave early, at say 7, be at destination by 10.30. A few hours at the party, on the road by 5, stop at 7 somewhere for a quick dinner, home at 8.30..

    I have only one 5 year old DS and he's a good traveller.

    I think since your DS travels ok, I'd brave it and go day trip. It's definitely doable. My BIL had his 4yo in the car for 8 hours on the weekend. They just stopped for a decent break every couple of hours for him to stretch his legs.

    If things don't work out, maybe pack a small overnight bag just in case?

    I'd stay overnight because the party would leave me exhausted most likely so driving home would be riskier on my own. If DH came I wouldn't be an issue.

    3 hours there and 3 hours back sounds manageable. You can always find a pit stop to rest!

    I would do it - if needed pull over for a coffee and stretch your legs. We did a six hour round trip for a birthday party in March and it was fine.

    We do similar trips every few weeks and it's definitely do-able as a day trip, but I find it less exhausting for all of us if we break it up and stay the night.
