when your parents are insane enough to plan a 2-week cross-country trip with 2 kids under 5?You sleep in the car.
You sleep on the plane
(and then avoid sleeping on the next plane when you SHOULD be sleeping because going from East to West is hard like that).
You go to the park... lots of parks.
You ride the ferry...
and the big gold pig at Pike Place.
You go for a hike,
And throw rocks in the ocean.
You "help" grandpa rebuild the deck stairs.
And play with the toys rescued from the attic (even though they've already been sold on Ebay).
You go to the Children's Museum (on the day you thought you were flying home because mommy got the dates mixed up).
And when you finally do get around to flying home you spend a solid 21 hours (!!!) travelling in cars and airplanes to make it all the way home. Which makes your parents vow to pretty much never do that again.It was great to get to see most of both of our families... But next year, we're staying closer to home for vacation.
