The journey...

We made it! It only took 22 hours and 14oo miles! One GPS. 1 torrential rain. 4 stops for gas. Red bull. LOTS of good music on our computers and ipod! 1 amazing bbq AND lots of lack of sleep!


BUT we did it! Smiling! :)

Aidyn was a saint. He loves to travel, and rides very well. We only stopped once to eat, otherwise we snacked on stuff we had in the cooler. Key advice for parents of toddlers taking a long journey?

BRING LOTS OF SNACKS! We had back up snacks. Chocolate snacks. Juice boxes. Fruit snacks... anything a sugar obsessed-chocolate addict-snack attack loving child could ask for- we had it! :) That made one happy child, and two happy parents!

Let just say....

We are winning at parenthood!

Tune in tomorrow to hear about vacation day 1! :)

p.s. photos were taking too long to upload! I'll post a link to an album tonight or tomorrow! :)

Wow! that's a hell of a drive! A few years ago, I went from Columbus, OH to Arches National Park in Utah, it took 18 hours, and we stopped only for gas. Everything else that had to be done was done when we were filling up. Hell of a trip!
