It's The Final Countdown... Part II

Well, we're half way there! This is a long trip with the 3 kids and a little nuts at times (there's no sugar coating it) travelling this distance with all of them is definitely a challenge. I have already learned that I need to pack much differently... the first night we got to our hotel at 11pm, 3 sleeping kids, 3 suitcases (since I had stuff just everywhere) and a couple duffle bags in toe. I had no clue where I packed the toothbrushes, diapers and bath stuff. It was not easy transition to our room. Needless to say, I've learned quite a bit on this first long road trip with the whole fam! Lot's of do's and don'ts for next time.

These are just more goodbye/get together pictures that I didn't have time to post this past week. 

We had a great dinner at my in-laws last weekend.
Here's John showing his nephew Kaleb the ropes on the guitar.

The boys petting their new Cousin Presley :)

Um ya, pretty sure Grandma Honey won't get all the grandkids looking at the camera for a group shot for at least a couple more years.

Little Presley sporting her new hair accessory her aunt Christa made for her :) she's a little doll.

Next gathering... 

Aunt Mikki's house for a fun and interesting "low boil" dinner! Never have done one of these and we loved it! They cover the table with newspaper, low boiled some corn, shrimp, potatoes, sausage and veggies. You throw a couple piles of food on the table and some side dishes of butter and proceed to chow down using lot's of napkins, it was pretty cool and low maintenance. I like low maintenance!

This is all that Kellen wanted to do while we ate dinner. He's obsessed with his car keys and driving. He sleeps with his keys and the other night I heard him wake up at 5 am... sit up and say "where are my keys?" since I had taken them after he fell asleep.

He's definitely full blown terrible 2's and just in time for this trip. He's quite ornery right now and a stubborn little man!!

Hope your travels are smoothing out as you near the end!
The low boil looked like a blast!
I've cooked one before and I only wished I would have let everything soak a bit longer, the corn had LOTS of flavor but the potatoes didn't seem to soak up as much.
Can't wait to hear that you have arrived safely!
