13+ hours down yesterday. By the time this posts, we should be 4 more into the trip, with hopefully less than 4 more to go. Took until 10pm to get the boys to sleep because of course, they were cooped up in a car all day long and I think they stored up every.little.ounce of energy that they possibly could, and it exploded when we got to our hotel. And I mean exploded.
There is still so much I want to write about the trip. Over the next week you should be able to look forward to the toxic caterpillar post, the 5 things you should never, EVER, forget on a road trip, swimming with manatees, and my review of the 2013 Ford Escape we were lucky enough to drive for the trip. I think I may have a new favorite vehicle…but you will read about that soon.
For now, I am off to bed (or again when you are reading, hopefully driving along happily with quiet children smiling from the back seat…..I can dream right?).
ps. I think when I re-read this when I get home tomorrow, I may wonder why on earth I tried to write a post in this total state of exhaustion. Sorry if it doesn’t make much sense.
