The Second Day of Christmas

Zach was moving around a little bit more on Monday morning so we decided we would try to drive to Nebraska to see my family.  We spent all morning getting ready and took off after lunch.  43 miles into the trip, we had already stopped four times for someone to go to the bathroom.  They kept saying they wanted to go to Grandma’s house.  Well, me too, and if you guys would stop having to go to the bathroom, we might just might it there a little sooner.  They kept entertained with their new blankets.  Adlyn was pretending to be a Christmas ghost and Brooks was pretending to be a green dinosaur.  I packed various snacks to keep them occupied.  Brooks slept for quite awhile, Adlyn just took a short nap.  They do travel well, but I don’t like to keep them in the car for hours on end.  It is a long haul, and even longer for two squirmy kids.  We will take as many stops as they need. 

A stop near supper time was just what they needed.  The mall has a great indoor play area and they remembered from another recent trip to Cheyenne.  Oddly, Subway was out of bread, so we didn't get a sandwich and had to resort to tacos.  We hopped back in the car to drive the rest of the way, it went quickly and I think we only stopped once.

The kids were excited to be at Grandma and Grandpa's, and to see Uncle Mike.  It was getting late, and they went to bed at midnight.  Travel can really mess up a sleep routine!
