Roadtrips, Earthquakes, and Aftershocks Oh My!

Spring Break Roadtrip. Day 1, First Hour.

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....

next blog post....Things I learned from going to Disneyland!

    Wow, I've never been in an earthquake, that must have been quite the experience. Glad to hear you are alright.

    PS You've gotta check out Windows Live Writer (unless you are a mac girl)'s way better than word for blog formatting.

    Can't wait to hear about the Disney part of your trip since we were there the week before you! A trip with friends sounds fun.
