In 8 days we traveled 4,338 miles. The elevation of 11,324 feet over Monarch Pass in Colorado all the way down to the Oregon coast. The kids all traveled great. Watched many movies (Percy Jackson 6 times on the way home). Played DS, had sword fights, read books, slept and laughed.
On our second day driving home Karlee had passed out chocolate bars to everyone about mid morning. A few hours later Bailee starts freaking out that Mason had something all over his legs and the seat. It was the chocolate bar!! He was playing his DS and forgot about the chocolate bar and it had slid under him and melted. I have never been soo grateful to have leather seats. It wasn't hard to clean up, just a little time consuming. New rule...no DS when your eating chocolate! We all had a great time in Oregon. We all are glad to be home. Shortly after we unloaded the car we went for a swim in our big tub in our back yard...yes, it felt that warm. No one really cared. It was great to be swimming and enjoying the hot sun. Oregon was cold.
