Florida 2011 - The Trip Home

On the drive home we were on our own. Two adults, a 3-year-old, two newborns, and 1300 miles. Daunting...but it went amazingly well.

We woke up at 4:00 when the boys were hungry and were on the road by 4:30 am.

I drove every mile and we pulled into our driveway 20.5 hours later at 1:00 am. We were so efficient that the 3 kids never even left the van. Our stops were either gas or drive-thru. Twice we drove almost 6 hours on a single tank of gas and only pulled off when our gas light had been on for over 30 miles and I was getting quite nervous.

2 weeks of fun tired Evie enough to take 2 naps on the way home.

During our short breaks we would "play" in the car. Evelyn loved to have the babies and "99" sit in her seat while she sat in our seat and buckled up.
Evelyn once again did great. She was annoying at times but with good reason and never pitched a fit. Our headphones are too big for her so Erin had to do some creative engineering to get them to stay on.
