No, not that kind of trippin'! I don't do that sort of thing. ;-)

We are on vacation!!!! Woo-hoo!

Yesterday we got up at 3:30 am, loaded up the munchkins, and headed south. It's a 8 hour drive straight through. We made it in 12 hours. It's vacation! Why rush? We stopped at a rest area in Illinois and they had a HUGE playground! We let the kids run for about an hour. I was going to take cute pictures to show you, but my camera batteries were dead! Anyhow, we took our time with lunch and made extra stops. This year we are learning the joy of slowing down.

Another thing we have discovered is on-the-road entertainment courtesy of C.S. Lewis. On a whim, we started a read-aloud of Prince Caspian. What a great idea!! It made the miles go by SO much faster. If we had started reading at 5 am when it started getting light out, we could have read the whole thing. As it is, we're left hanging 70 pages from the end! We haven't had a chance to sit down together and read more since we got here. Hopefully we can find time to finish it... SOON!! Lewis is a master. I've yet to read the whole Narnia series, but I am greatly enjoying this one.

Stay tuned for more stories from our vacation!
