A few observations we’ve made so far…
--this is the first trip we haven’t had a potty chair, bottle, or diapers with us!
--headphones for all the kids on iPods, DS’s, and DVD players--blissful!
--riding with two tweens (caravanned with another family) is better than the alternative. It's quieter and less "fight"y than with just siblings. I always went on vacay with friends since my brother was so much older. DQ is in heaven having her friend in the car!
--having a laptop in the car is cool, if only for drafting in MS Word!
--our car cleans up well, when we actually clean it.
--I-5 is a long, boring road.
--Mixed CD’s make the ride tolerable. Thanks Kim!
--I love my family.
--My husband is a good driver.
--I want car wi-fi.
Day 1, Afternoon Evening.
--After lunch we played musical cars. I rode with my friend and both boys.
--Talking makes the drive go faster.
--Boys make more animated noises than girls.
--We made it to the hotel in great time.
--While checking into the hotel, we experienced and earthquake. We had to go outside, escorted by the scared staff!
--Learned the quake was a 7.2 centered in Mexicali.
--Quakes don't deter kids from wanting to go swimming!
--Hotel restaurants are nice when you want to drink and not drive.
--The night before Disneyland, plus aftershocks woke me at 4am....
