Redwoods Vacation: Part One
Since it was an eight hour trip for us (without the stops), I got creative. I saw a yard sale sign the day before and stopped. I found a cute bag of Polly Pockets for the girls and a small box of Legos for the little boys. I gave the toys to them the minute we got in the van to leave. They were thrilled to play with their new toys! They played the entire time with them. I couldn't believe how peaceful it was. I also charged up their MP3 players and Marcus brought his Game Boy. In 1,14 miles we had a five minute meltdown with Lily. That was it! God really blessed us.
We decided to take the backseat out of the van, so we could have more cargo space. That made it really squishy for the kids. They are used to having space in between them. They did really good overall with being patient with one another.
More later. I don't want to overwhelm you. I played a lot with my camera and I can't wait to show you some of the shots I got.
