I mentioned on a couple of occasions that Heather and Lauren and the boys drove from Vermont to Colorado for Thanksgiving this year. That is 1,937.8 miles for a total of 29 hours. I got that information from Google, and I’m pretty sure Google was not accounting for many potty breaks for a 6-year-old and a 3-year-old nor for frequent stops so that kids’ legs can be stretched, tummies filled, and fights abated.
Going home, the first day they drove from Denver to Chicago — arriving in the Windy City around 3 o’clock in the morning. They had a quick visit the next day with Wilma, and hit the road once again. Before finally arriving home very many hours later, they had to stop at Lauren’s father’s house — about an hour from Montpelier — to pick up their dog, Merlin.
Heather kept us informed about their whereabouts via Facebook. Here is the final photo, and it certainly made me smile….
Imagine that those boys were still smiling after over 30 hours on the road. Merlin looks pretty happy too.
Have a great weekend.
