Home Sweet Trenches - The Middle

So we left Myrtle Beach at 6am on Friday. And proceeded to NOT ARRIVE IN BALTIMORE until 3pm.

9 hours later.

8 hours of daytime driving (booo hissss to DC traffic) with a 1 hour lunch break at Friendlys.

With 3 WIDE AWAKE children.

Not fun, my friends. Not fun. Needless to say there was lots of whining, yelling, and crying.  And that was just me.  They were worse.

Anyway, Grandma and Poppa were there to greet us in Baltimore.
We were banking on being able to swim at the hotel but the outdoor pool was too cold.

So my 3 wild boyz who had been sitting in a car all day now had to be contained in a hotel room.

Again--not fun, my friends.  Not fun.

(What WAS kinda fun was watching my boyz experience a hotel for the first time.  "But where's the kitchen?")

AND THEN??

We got to sit at a ballgame!
I think I started getting bedsores on my ass from all that sitting.

To be continued...

OMG! I feel for you. When we left for New Orleans, we didn't get out of Missouri until Midnight. It should have been like 10p.m. since we left at 6! It was NOT fun. I hope they ended up having a good time though. I think Tiger Balm would work better for the sore bum though.

I am sorry our region didn't provide better traffic - always the case in the horrific mixing bowl.
