Many Thanks :0)

We just got back a few hours ago. Hallelujah. Vacation was wonderful, but there's no place like home :0)

Thanks for the prayers! The drive - both ways - was quite bearable.

Ambulance Mommy, using the FM is a great idea in the car and we do use it sometimes. Very helpful! It does drain the battery a lot faster, though.

The temps stayed in the 70's most of the day as we drove, and even without the AC we could at least blow the air around :0)

And the boys found a way to occupy themselves - they count trucks. For whatever reason they find this fascinating. And since it's about 8 hours of travel time (with lunch and potty breaks), if counting trucks is fun, so be it. They pick several trucking companies and see who has the most trucks on the road. GTI, Swift, Interstate, etc.

I don't have pics yet, so more later... but thanks for the prayers :0)

So, which trucking company won with the most trucks? (I'm biased, I used to drive for Swift...)

Well, you're a winner then! The boys counted more Swift trucks than any other individual trucking company, with Interstate and GTI coming behind.

The lumped some things together like "tanker trucks" and "food trucks", so that doesn't quite count the same.

Hey, you have boys that can figure out how to entertain themselves. Gotta love it! Your successful trip gives me hope for road trips in the future (right now it makes my legs tremble- Nolan is not a good traveler as of yet)!

Ahhh, good to know the FMs are an option in the car that i didnt just make up :) Although if you read my blog today, I'm very frustrated, it's dead!!!!! Glad to hear about the trip, the kids look great, and it must have been so much fun for you all!
