I mean it. I'm finished driving to Utah for the year. Don't worry I'll probably be eating my words in just a few months when we find another reason to go back.
My drive alone was a success. I wasn't willing to pay $74.99 to download Harry Potter, so I settled on "The Second Summer of the Sisterhood". It is the follow-up to the Traveling Pants book. It was good enough to keep me awake until I rolled into Lehi at 5:54 am, and I finally finished it as we crossed the bridge back into Washington.
Funny thing- I pulled into the rest stop yesterday between Ogden and Tremonton and changed Brynners' diaper around 7 am. I noticed the family next to us was doing the same thing. Then I realized it was Kim and Eden. How funny that we stop at the same rest stop at the same time and park RIGHT next to eachother. We met up in Mountain Home and had lunch at McDonalds.
The ride home was uneventful. The highlight for Kaden was watching TV all day- and Brynnlee's dream come true was no discipline for a day. I mean really, what are you going to do when she's tossing Cheetos at you and dumping Crystal Light in her carseat? Pull over every two minutes? No thanks. Needless to say she had a great time and I made it home.
