The drive down?

Yeah. I had reason to worry.

We're still in Florida with beautiful temps in the 70s. I watch the Weather Channel daily...I watch it every day when I come to Florida in the winter just so I can sit back a chuckle at the crappy weather in PA. Walking around in shirtsleeves in January is my definition of heaven.

Anyway. The drive. It took until day 3 for me to figure out what would work with Kevin and keep him from being miserable which, in turn, made us miserable. I decided to take 3 days to drive down on this trip in order to keep each leg at around 6-7 hours. I'm glad I did that because any longer and one of us wouldn't be here right now. By the 3rd day, I started out after breakfast and before Kevin's nap. He fell asleep and woke up around the time I could give him lunch. At lunchtime I'd take him into a McDonalds or Wendys so he could get out of the car and have some fun. I'd kill enough time that he was almost ready for his next nap and he'd fall asleep again. By the time he woke up I was 5 minutes from the house rental.

I'll write more about the vacation a bit later. I need to go rouse him from his nap...

Soak up some rays for me. It's like a whopping one degree here. I'm so jealous (sigh)...
