So, we hit our goal (plus one exit) and stopped in Salem, VA for the night. The kids did a great job. We ended up leaving around 10:20 (they ate at 9:30), stopped at 1:30 for a feeding (and lunch!) , 4:30 for a feeding and gas, then 7:30 for the night, where they had solids, bottles, and played. They slept for 90% of the drive, and played the other 10%.
All that being said, as much as I hate flying, the idea of renting a car and carseats, and shipping everything down (did I mention I should get a gold star for packing so much stuff in the space I had?), flying and the 2 hour trip... I can see the appeal!
And, let me shout out my love for Peter. Even though we were just going to stay in a hotel wherever we stopped for a night with no reservations, etc, he picked the one with a fitness center so I could get in a run this morning! How thoughtful!!!
Well, I'm runned, showered, and in the process of babyeating before I get them dressed and we grab some breakfast (the hotel feeds us too! Woo Hoo!), then we are on the road again for the second half of our journey! I cant wait to see my mom!!!
