16 1/2 hours later...

We arrived at my folks house. What a terribly long day. My kids were champs though. They really did amazing.

When we got here there were a few fits thrown, by Seth and myself and even my mild-mannered husband.

We eventually all crashed, well all but Libby. She had a late nap in the car, so she felt it would be much more fun to crawl around the bed on Mom and Dad. Yeah, that was fun.

Now it's time for breakfast, putting our bags in the car and driving 3 hours to Jer's folks. After 16 1/2 hours, 3 will seem like nothing!!!!

Oh and I complained about the 11 hour drive for us last week! 16 hours sounds AWFUL! I'm glad you're there safely.

I can't imagine a 16 1/2 hr drive. i think I'd have to be committed to a mental hospital first, and a spa next (for knead some life back into my legs & backside for sitting for so long!). Kudos to you guys for reaching your destination in one piece!

You are so much braver than I am. I have vowed to never travel with my children while they're still small after many futile and cranky attempts and severe loss of my remaining sanity. Believe me, we tried it, and I have now given up on it ever happening again until my youngest is at LEAST 6. On second thought make that 18.

Oh my goodness. You are a very brave soul.
