We survived our massively long car ride (pictures here). The kids were PERFECT. Nicky spent the first hour pointing out all the trucks we passed. You’d be surprised how many trucks are driving around the bay area in the early evening. We talked about every single one. The next hour was spent answering the question “why?”. We pretty much repeated those two conversations the entire 11 hour drive. Throw in a few toys here, a few snacks, a few breaks to stretch our legs and then we were here, ready to celebrate.
