The trip went well - we arrived safe & sound late Thursday night. There are definitely not enough playlands between Texas and Kansas to keep my family happy! However, we did survive the 14 1/2 hours in the minivan without killing each other or going crazy! My Father-In-Law was a blessing to have on the trip, allowing me to be in the back with the kiddos to change movies for Loo (new portable DVD player - how did I live without it?) and play with Loco until he fell asleep.
We will need to stop overnight on the way home for me to survive the trip alone. But, I have faith it will be manageable.
Thank you, my blog friends, for the well wishes...Merry Christmas :)
