The road trip.
It is cramped, long and full of off-key singing.
Last year was Eli’s very first road trip. It went really well, so we decided to make it a little more interesting this year. We added a mother-in-law and 11 year-old brother-in-law to the mix.
we crammed all 5 of us, the luggage, the toys and books, the diapers, the snacks and the stroller into my Mazda 6.
We left before the sun rose that morning There were a few stops along to way for stretching legs and changing diapers. 6 hours later, we were there: San Antonio, TX.
I learned a few things on this 6 hour drive:
1. Mother-in-laws have the best gossip.
2. Little Eli isn’t fond of sitting for 6 hours, even with my fantastic repertoire of songs and his favorite toys.
3. Reading in a car with a toddler, a tween, a mother-in-law, a husband and a GPS will not happen.
All-in-all it was a great drive. The kids were patient with us. The GPS app got us to where we were going. The drive was beautiful and scenic.
A little sneak peak of a few of our adventures in San-Antonio (more to come!)
