We weren't sure if we were going to make it to South Carolina because of Jeremy's work schedule, luckily at the last minute we took off for a quick visit! Traveling 1,000 miles each way with three toddlers was not high on my "fun" list of things to do but we bought a DVD player and loaded up. Logistically getting 2 adults and 3 toddlers in the car is tight, but traveling across the country adds a new element. I'll just say that we all fit, very snugly, and we even had room for the trusty wagon! The kids did amazingly well. We stopped for a night in Atlanta on the way there to get the kids out for a break. I had already hyped myself up to hiding in the bathroom while we waited for the kids to fall asleep. Luckily we found a suite and the kids had their own room to set up camp! We were able to take the kids swimming and the next morning went out to explore Centennial Olympic Park! This was a great time for us all to be out of the car! On the trip back home we made the trek without any stops. We traveled all night long and by the morning the kids were ready to be out! All-in-all the road trip part of this excursion wasn't that bad. We all had a great time with the family in South Carolina, and are already planning our next trip this summer! Look for more posts soon about the fun trip!

|One really large Christmas tree, I told Jeremy I wanted a pic |
of the entire tree. He was not pleased at how far back he had to move.
