Captains Log

Our trip…
We pull out of driveway at 9 am as planned…


Driving with kids…

Christopher- Mom, are we almost there?
Me-We just pulled out of the driveway
Tommy- I have to pee!
Me- Tommy didn’t I tell you to go before we left.
Tommy- I don’t know.
Hubby- Ill turn around.
Baby- WAHHH!!!
Me- Baby, why are you crying??
Baby-No like !!!(pulling at car seat straps)
Tommy- Are you gonna let me go potty?
Christopher- How long is an hour?
Hubby- Can I have a beer at 9:00am?/ you can drive.
Me..(Slaps hubby..HARD!!)

Yes we pulled back to the house.. Tommy peed and we started out AGAIN!!!…It’s gonna be a long long drive…


Please note we stopped 5 hours into the trip. Also note we had to stop at every rest area on NJ Turnpike… In Maryland.. we figured we get a hotel.. and feed the boys at a decent restaurant..

First mistake …we booked a hotel sight unseen.. Okay this place made Bates Motel look four stars..(please note we are caravanning with Brother in Law Mike, Sister in Law Chelle and their kids) We called all around and every other hotel in area was..booked..The kids just couldn’t travel anymore….We were stuck..

Chelle: This place is gross
Me: Its like a seedy dive in a porn movie
Hubby: Yeah but there are no mirrors..on the ceiling...
Chelle: Im showering with flip flops
Me: I’m scrubbing the bathroom before my kids use it.
My four year old:MOMMY I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!! THERE ARE MOTHS IN THE CLOSET>>>HOW COOL!!!!!
Hubby: Lets just think of it as camping..an adventure ..
Me: AHHHHH!!!

* We will be in Virginia Saturday afternoon to get into the beach house.. wish us luck!!!!

sounds like a great road trip so far. I love when stuff like that happens, it just makes the trip more memorable. Better that it being uneventful, i guess. HAVE FUN!!

When we went to my cousins wedding the place was seedy and the only place in town. At night there were guys waiting in their cars to take turns in one room, and there were ants on the floor. ewww.

Welcome to hell. This is what you call a "memorable" vacation--but for all the wrong reasons. Just remember it all to post for us later! :)
