The kids did an excellent job riding in the car! James drank his bottle and took a couple little naps...Elsie played and talked to herself almost the entire ride! And when things get a bit much we pull out some DVD's! We did make several stops on the way there...but we made it with only one stop on the way home...and NO potty breaks for Elsie...2 for me though! Elsie got to the point of telling me, "no more water, mom! Remember there are no potty's for a long time!"
We had quite a time of finding a Taco John's...our favorite restaurant...good thing for the Droid restaurant finder and GPS...what did we do before the Droid?!
I would like to say we have a very clean and organized car...but it simply is not so...Jon and I kept shaking our heads saying if our car is this bad with only 2 kids what will our car look like as we add more children! I don't think we could even see the floor...it was bad!
But the kids were happy...keeping them happy was the most important thing...happy kids = a happy Mommy and Daddy! *Note that shoes are optional only in our car!*
Love Jon's sunglasses...I think he wears them just for me!
Jon and I took turns climbing to the back to keep the kids entertained...and we argue about who will drive...and Elsie always tells us, "you guys can just take turns!" Smart girl!
Our travels took us 4 hours south from there 2 hours west then 4 hours back home...towards the end of our trip the kids were getting a little bored and not quite so happy...so we started pulling out everything we could think of to keep the kids happy. Who knew an umbrella could keep them entertained for for long...all James would do was look at the umbrella and he would start laughing!
