17 total hours in the car with 3 kids and a co-pilot that looked like this

You'd think after 9 full hours of not napping in the car, the smaller people in the family would be ready to sleep once we got to the hotel on Day 1.

Ummm. Not so much.

Kyle asked to have his picture made.

And Reed asked for me to take a picture of him "pretending to sleep".

Yep, pretending to sleep was the only sleeping going on.

Our second car day was 8 full hours with only one meltdown.
(Not counting my own, of course.)

But we made it.
East Texas to Durango, Colorado

And I can officially say:
I am REALLY awesome!

Um yes you are awesome! I've gone to Denver and back but never have I stayed overnight in a hotel by myself. Incredible. Welcome back!
