Summer Travels 2012

June 18-22: General Assembly in Louisville, KY
June 22: spend the night in GA
June 23-July 2: FL w/ Abby's fam
July 2-4: Roomie reunion in ATL
July 5-9: GA w/ Currie's fam

       The kids did SO much better than I thought they would in the car!  Ellie was a little whiny on the first two legs of the trip, which were only about 5 hours, but once she got the idea that we'd be in the car all day, she did great.  I had come very prepared with books, snacks, and lots of Dollar Tree toys (pom poms, beads, pipe cleaners, dry erase board, play dough, stickers, etc.).  I got her a cookie sheet that she used for snacks and as a surface to draw on.  Hudson had a rough hour before reaching FL, but otherwise was his usual chill self.  When all was said and done, we spent about 44 hours in the car and covered 1,800 miles!
