2100 miles

We’ve been on the road since Saturday & just completed our ~2100 mile trip. (± a few after a detour in Ohio where we pulled up just in time for Sunday brunch with extended family.)   Around 5 pm this evening we finally pulled into my parent’s driveway in MN.

The kids were surprisingly patient and overall well behaved. I have to admit that I am surprised at being able to say that I would do this again! I have 2 days with my parents before flying out to meet my husband in Scottsdale, AZ.

A few things that kept us busy on the road: a cooler full of snacks/drinks (you can see it between the 2 kids in the backseat), the Carly Rae Jepsen CD which kept my daughter singing for HOURS, Strawberry Shortcake & Doc Mcstuffins DVDs, & 2 neon pink Magna Doodles we picked up for $4.99 each at Target on the way!

Other things to note:

* I ate a Burger King Whopper & a Mcdonald’s Double Cheeseburger meal. Mcdonald’s french fries really are sooo much better. Next time I’ll skip the Burger King fries!

* My little sis was rode along with us and she was a MAJOR helper in the passenger seat. THANKS, keli! Her schedule is super busy between her job as a doula, yoga instructor, and she is busy organizing the first Yoga Peach Belize yoga retreat. You can check her out at Yoga Peach.

  1. Oh your trip seems fun! The kids look so sweet sleeping in the backseat. I say this now, as I am babysitting my niece, and have projectile vomit on me somewhere because I can still smell it hours after I cleaned it up. Oh kids… they seriously are a joy despite the disgusting, gag inducing effects they cause once in a while! I am proud you took such a huge trip with two little ones. You are an inspiration!

  2. oh no! i forgot about those days.

    I also forgot to mention that my sister was with me for the 3 day drive. So I am not as much of an inspiration as you may think ;) she was incredibly helpful!!
