We kissed the bricks. The germaphobe in me got over it. The germaphope in Hayden couldn't.
Our kids Love hotels. Hayden especially LOVES hotels. He asks to go to a hotel often. I find this really crazy with his sensory and transitions issues he has. He adores them that's part of the reason I can't win the "let's go on a road trip" speech.
What, doesn't everybody sit in a hotel window with their Ipad while watching the cars go by on the express way? No, well everyone should its really the bomb and it takes your sister forever to figure out where you are.
Nope she is not awake its a figment of your imagination.
And of course we had to stop in and see the duck commander warehouse.
She insisted I take her picture by Phil but she didn't want to stand by him alone, He scared her. I don't get it either.
All in all it was a great road trip. I went through 1 package of wipes, 2 boxes of tissues, and pulled out the kiddy potty only once on the side of the road, thank you to all the friendly cars passing by who honked at us. I am convinced that Hayden does it on purpose...I mean really what little boy doesn't dream of doing his business on the the side of the road in a pink princess potty while mack trucks honk at you? We aim to please little man, you are welcome.
We traveled through 10 states, saw people and places we would never have seen otherwise, battled a flock of naughty chickens and had a lot of laughs. Most important we spent some much needed quality time as a family. What could be better than that?
