I've been on the road, in case y'all were wondering where I'd gone off to! (Driving to California, from Nebraska...four kids in the car...I'm amazed I'm still functioning somewhat normally.)

I'll stop by here and there. :D

Wow! That would be a great trip (if you could somehow muzzle the kids . . .)  ;)

Once you're there, though, it will definitely be great!

Yeah...I stopped going anywhere with the kids when we got to six.  The noise increases exponentially with each child.  ::)  Right around four kids is when car trips stopped being fun.  Any long trips we go on now are only for necessity. 

I fondly remember the days when we had a one year old and an infant, and it was soooo quiet in the car! A cross-country drive with them was better than a hone hour trip with the whole family today. 

I'm not big on a lot of tv watching...but in-car dvd systems are your friend!  I miss our old van, it had a built in dvd system with wireless headphones.  *sigh*

Good luck!  And may you return home with your sanity intact!  :D

Thanks, Heidi. You're not kidding, I was saying a lot of prayers along the way! You know it's bad when they've got those call boxes along the side of the road. Like they're expecting you to not be able to make it. :p

Have fun on your trip! I drove from NY to Colorado when I first came out here--the car almost died in Amarillo. And it got worse as the altitude got higher. Then I hit a blizzard. But...I guess I got here. (Didn't have four kids in the car.)

Wow, sounds just like our trip!! We did go through some mountains and did hit a blizzard too! The kids got the biggest kick out of the snow in May. We even took a video. :D

Yes, we're nerds.
