My road trip began on Sat the 2nd. After scrambling to finish packing I drove 350 miles with the 2 boys. The trip up was great. The toddler slept 60% of the time. It helps to leave around his naptime. Our only stop was at Sonic. Sonic is not the best place to stop when on a road trip. The bathrooms are inconvenient and have no diaper station. We arrived at my parents house in the evening on sat.
Sun we went to a small, very small fair that had a waterslide. The big kid loved the slide. Being in the mountains there isn’t a ton to do. There was fireworks that night but it was too late and everyone was pooped. My parents tire very easily, especially with an active 2 year old. For the 4th we did nothing and that was fine with me. We hung out at the house and I did lots of reading. On Tuesday the big kid and I went to see Cars 2. Thoroughly enjoyable movie. Wed – we tried a quick visit into town but the toddler had a major meltdown that killed the trip quickly. Thursday we drove home.
My eating wasn’t the best, a few good days and one or two horrible days, no great days. On the driving days especially. My mom made some comments about my eating that I did not appreciate. It makes me want to eat more and that is wrong. I won’t get into it. I managed to walk one day and do a full kettlebell workout another day.
I started and finished a great book while I was there. “Time of my Life” by Allison Winn Scotch. Fun, well written, engaging book.
