A 15 Hour Trip...

We are heading to Illinois for the Thanksgiving holiday!! I'm looking forward to spending some quality time together as a family, even if it will be 15 hours in the car! We've got lots of special car activities planned; a new Thomas Train to be introduced at a fussy moment, a travel sized aquadoodle, books, tractors, lots of DVDs and my new favorite is a magnetic tin with a train track inside that came with small Thomas the tank engine magnets (Christian's never seen it before so it should be fun for awhile). We will probably be stopping in Zaneville, OH for dinner because they have a McDonalds with an awesome playland and we're hoping to make it to Dayton, OH by tomorrow night sometime. Can you tell we've traveled this route before?

Christian is really excited about seeing Grampy's tractors (Ryan's parents live on a farm) and Christian is also looking forward to seeing the doggies. He's been talking about this trip for about 4 days now. I hope he's still excited 5 hours into the drive!!!

I won't be posting anything until we get back, so pray for us! I'll have tons of pictures to share next week!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!! Enjoy your time with your family and friends!

I am praying for you guys and your trip, that it will go well and be just what you guys need for the holiday. Selfishly I wish you were coming up here, but I know you have to see Ryan's family eventually:). I can't wait to hear all about it!

I'm so glad that it went well! We'll be doing the drive to FL at Christmas in a straight shot (16 hours), so it will be interesting! Very curious about the travel sized aqua doodle - haven't seen that one! I could use it!!!!
