We managed to get ourselves packed into the car, out to Grandma and Papa’s house and on the road just a little before 8:00 a.m…. yay! It must be a good omen that we were able to stick to our schedule.
1 minute into the trip- first time someone made fun of Papa a little bit
4 minutes into the trip- Papa spilled his coffee a little bit
8 minutes into the trip- first argument (about time zones)
8.5 minutes into the trip- first time Papa said he was wrong (about the time zones)
Glad we got all of that out of the way so quickly! 🙂
The rest of the day was pretty uneventful. Cheap gas at Safeway thanks to club card points. Good weather, no traffic, not much road construction. Scooted into Missoula, Montana ahead of schedule (thanks to high speed limits!).
The boys got to swim a little with Grandma while I enjoyed a little bit of silence. Thanks, Grandma! They were ready for bed by 10:00 without argument- amazing! AND they were up and ready to move when I shook them at 7:00 in the morning.
