Halfway There!

Saturday, May 29, 2010

So, we hit our goal (plus one exit) and stopped in Salem, VA for the night.  The kids did a great job.  We ended up leaving around 10:20 (they ate at 9:30), stopped at 1:30 for a feeding (and lunch!) , 4:30 for a feeding and gas, then 7:30 for the night, where they had solids, bottles, and played.  They slept for 90% of the drive, and played the other 10%.

All that being said, as much as I hate flying, the idea of renting a car and carseats, and shipping everything down (did I mention I should get a gold star for packing so much stuff in the space I had?), flying and the 2 hour trip...  I can see the appeal!

And, let me shout out my love for Peter.  Even though we were just going to stay in a hotel wherever we stopped for a night with no reservations, etc, he picked the one with a fitness center so I could get in a run this morning!  How thoughtful!!!

Well, I'm runned, showered, and in the process of babyeating before I get them dressed and we grab some breakfast (the hotel feeds us too!  Woo Hoo!), then we are on the road again for the second half of our journey!  I cant wait to see my mom!!!

It sounds perfect. I love traveling by car. We did many trips with our children only we would leave often at night but that was when we would try to drive straight through! I think it was a smart move on your part.
Enjoy each moment!
