Our Nightmare OOPS I mean our trip up to PA

Ok,ok so I am very grateful to God for getting the kids and I safely to PA but (And it is a big BUT) I could have dealt without.......
  • 11 hours and 20 minutes in the car with 2 cranky kids (oh yeah did I mention my fastest time for this trip was 8 hours & 45 minutes?)
  • 6 (Count them with me) construction zones
  • 5 potty stops for Kendall(with one peepee accident in the car seat less than 5 minutes from my parents house)
  • 2 blow outs (thankfully NOT on his car seat) from Isaac
  • 1 INSANE stop at a McDonald's (that didn't have a playground?!?!?)
  • 2 heart stopping moments while speeding & seeing police along the way (Hubby has the radar detector!)
  • Isaac refusing to eat anymore baby food or anything the consistency of baby food so now I just literally throw food at him from the front seat & hope that something sticks!
  • Tinker Bell (twice), Finding Nemo, The little mermaid, Diego (The iguana one) twice!
  • Isaac screaming one time for 40 minutes straight, once 25 minutes straight (in the middle of DC beltway traffic) and then off and on!

I am ready to be out of the car and visit some :-)

Could always be worse. We spent 23 1/2 hours getting through the state of Louisiana trying to run from Hurricane Ivan. My husband drove one car with 2 dogs and I drop the other car with Joey. We had lots of blow outs, I think that was the time Joey stopped eating baby food, and we had lots of crying from both baby and dogs. We survived and we were safe from the storm.
So 11 hours and 20 minutes is a super long time in the car with 2 cranky kids it could always be worse. Trust me when I took both boys to Ohio by myself a few years ago I remembered my trip to Texas and knew it could always be worse.

I don't think I would want to attempt a trip that long with the kids. I would probably go insane! Were all six construction zones in PA? haha. I swear it is never ending.

Oh no! As I read this, your trip up is but a past memory haha

Hope your stay and drive back don't have any "buts" attached :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
