Home Sweet Trenches - The Beginning
So yes, we packed our bags and hopped into the car. Some of us eager (the boyz). Others of us tranqd (that'd be me).
But seriously you guys? I can't even believe I'm gonna utter these words, but it wasn't that bad.
Yes, it was 14 hours straight. Yes, we left at 3:45 in the afternoon and had to deal with the "I'm hungrys", the "I hafta pees" and the "He's looking at mes" for quite a few hours. But by 9:30pm-ish? Peace and quiet. Allllll through the night. I dozed on and off from midnight to 4am, at which point Hubby angrily awoke me because it was somehow MY fault that he took a wrong turn and we ended up in quaint downtown Wilmington, NC. Cute town, by the way. But notsomuch at 4AM.
And then we were there. At 5:45am Saturday morn.
(That pic NOT taken at 5:45am, by the way. Grandma and Grandpa made them wait until 9 to go to the pool.)
Hubby and I immediately hit the sack and slept until almost noon.
And then proceeded to have an awesome 6 days in Myrtle Beach!
So it was our "brilliant" idea to break up the trip on the way back home. You know, to make it "easier" on ourselves.
To be continued...
