So we did it. We drove to Pittsburgh. 550 miles there. 550 miles back. 4 boys.
We stopped a total of 5 times on the way to Pittsburgh. A total of 6 times on the way home. The boys watched LeapFrog’s The Letter Factory a total of 9 times. They watched Star Wars a total of 3 times. And my Alex told me he had to “puke” the last full hour before we pulled into our driveway and only answered to Darth Vader.
All in all, it was an adventure! We drove my mother’s Honda Pilot because she has a DVD player. This car is a little too small for us. Sad, but true.
Enjoy these clips…
(This was taken on the way to Pittsburgh – it was 6:13PM and we had been on the road since 7:46AM.)
(This was taken as we were turning the corner toward our street. Yes, the boys sang “Puppy, Puppy, Puppy” on and off the whole way home to try to get Henry to laugh.)
(Matt got this video clip of me as I was getting out of the car. You can tell by the look on my face that it had been a long… long drive home. All 11 hours of it.)
