Dear readers, I am about to bore you with multiple posts about our big family vacation. I realize this may succeed in chasing you away forever. I hope not, though. I really do appreciate those of you who have the patience to read my very sporadic posts. Although, I suspect your RSS feeders are the real reason you keep coming back for more. Thank you RSS feeders; I appreciate your programmed diligence.
Our family vacation required a three-day road trip across the country.
We managed to miss a toll booth as we circled Chicago. Luckily, there's a seven day grace period before a ticket is issued and, if you pay online, you can acoid the extra fine. Unfortunately, paying online was not as easily done as we had hoped and we'll probably find a fine waiting for us when get our mail upon returning home.
These pictures were taken near the end of our first 12-hours on the road. Before we left I was a little worried about the boys getting restless and impatient. Two things I felt certain would lead to bickering. Once again, the children surprised me. They were amazing. I couldn't be prouder.
Highlight of Day One: They were excited to find some squeaky cheese in Wisconsin. This bag lasted lasted much longer than I expected it would. Almost the whole week!
