The mission: driving a total of 18 hours in two days with two children under the age of 5. And then back again. No DVD player. Minimal whining and no trips to the ER.
Call us crazy, but we drove with Warren and Maddie up to Washington State to visit with many family members and friends. Three major events (posts to follow) brought us back “home” for a good 2 weeks.
We took along “The BFG” by Roald Dahl, as recommended by Julianna, to read out loud. What a great story! Many snacks and some good tunes kept us from going too crazy.
All in all, a good trip. See additional posts for further details…
