Well, one thing we confirmed today, the kids can’t do more than 1 day in the car at a time….today marked 3 days in a row driving. Ian got board with his activities 2 ½ days ago, and has spent his time terrorizing his sister, drinking way to much water, and making a mess of himself and the car. …he is going to be trouble growing up. Lily, on the other hand, has provided great reactions to all his pestering, and also, drank to much water, making matters worse.
Before this trip, my idea of the west included mountains in some areas. However, on our trip from about day 2 we have been driving through mountains…. Until today… welcome back to Nebraska, the land of flat, hot, boring roads. It might have something to do with the fact that we are going home, but no state seems to take as long to cross as Nebraska (Iowa comes in close second).
No pictures from today. We piled into the car and left at 7:30 this morning from just north of Denver…. And drove… and drove… and drove. … more than 1 day of driving doesn’t work well for the parents either.
I thought 5 weeks would be forever for a vacation, but now that it is finished, it seemed it seems much shorter. The kids were saying this morning that they didn’t want to go home yet, they wanted to stay on vacation. Bryon and I are ready to get home for a bit, maybe two weeks to do laundry and get healthy again… but then we would love to be on the road again as well. If only we could figure out how to make travel and hiking pay.
