of course holly wd pick the day of a car trip to wake at 445 :P. (nak) christine is here and she and i are driving the girls down to visit my parents in kansas city. i'm nervous, of course: the longest i've driven with both is 2.5 hrs and that was 3 months ago. this drive is 5 hrs :/. we are going to ignore naptime (at our own peril) and try to get out early(ish -- have some errands) so if we need to take frequent breaks we'll still get there at a decent time, figure out sleeping arrangements (ah, the magical beds of my family follow us wherever we go... i can't bedshare with robin, ideally not roomshare either, and they both need pitch black rooms), and god willing settle robin in. holly is still young enough that she'll sleep wherever... robin notsomuch.

i'm nervous about the usual suspects, but excited at a change of scenery, a yard to play in, good food and conversation, and maybe a trip to the zoo.

brian is going to stay here and do a ton of cleaning and hopefully smoke pot and play guitar and have fun as a manly man, and not mope and be like "i miss you" which of course he will but COME ON, he's getting to be alone for days on end!! OPPORTUNITY!

anyway. holly has fallen back asleep now so...

I hope the trip goes really well - my kids usually nap fairly well in the car so leaving at naptime could be ideal. Hopefully the girls will be so happily tired from all the good times that they'll sleep like rocks! :)

I really hope you have an easy trip! Have your parents met Holly yet? I can't remember.

I am interested in how this trip goes for you. We leave in less than two weeks and it's a 12 hour drive to Cheyenne where we'll stay the night and another 8 to Provo the next day. Three days in Provo and then an hour south to my sister's house, there for 2 days and then another 3 to my parents house. When we leave we'll probably go the Denver route which is two days in 9 and 12 hour stints.
