Taking a Break From Driving

Here is our little guy getting a much needed break from the car seat. He was so ready to be done. This particular stop was in Flatwoods, WV. We got out, walked through a book store, played in the grass, and even sent Andrew into the Amish bulk food store to buy chocolate covered pretzels. Yum. I will not admit to how many of them I consumed by stealth next to Luke in the back seat. He's getting too old to sneak much of anything around him. I somehow convinced him that he should eat Crispix while I had pretzels. Yummy.

I think he looks a little disoriented here. Kinda like he'd been in a car for 10 hours. Oh wait...

We had some fun with bubbles. What a great thing to bring along on a trip! I had planned to use them in the car for when we needed a distraction, but that was before I remembered that we don't have AC. Wind whipping through the windows did not support active bubble blowing. :)

Lukey and Mommy getting ready to get back in the car for the final stretch. What a long day! We left Andrew's parents house around 4:30 in the morning and got home around 6:30 that evening. All things considered, a pretty good days travel.

I am loving all your trip pics and are pretty clever in traveling with a little one. One would think you'd been doing it for years. Clever.. Love the videos.

We made that trip in the other direction under similar conditions (hot, humid, no AC) a few years ago, only with a puppy (slept a lot, easy to entertain) instead of a toddler, and it was difficult enough. Thanks so much for doing this!
