Seventeen Hours

Over the past week and a half I’ve been on an extended vacation that covered two states, a quick trip to the Pacific Ocean, visits with several family members, two ferry rides across the Puget Sound, school supply/clothes shopping, and at least SEVENTEEN hours of driving in a car with two five-year olds.

Not surprisingly, I’ve got no energy for a blog post today.

Instead, let’s do an open thread about vacation experiences!

What are your greatest, or maybe your not so greatest, vacation moments?

  1. My daughter and her family arrived yesterday for a visit… ten hours in the car with a six year old, a four year old, a teenager, a puppy and one exhausted husband! Fortunately they arrived safely and I’m delighted to see them. Our married children all live in different cities so these holiday times are precious.

    I think the vacation that stands out the most was the year we drove from the west coast of Canada to the east coast in a nine-week journey with another family. They had a motor home and we had a truck and trailer. For the ferry ride to Newfoundland we decided to save money. We left our rig on the mainland and packed our gear into our friends’ 20′ motor home for the five days on the Island. Four adults, four children under ten, one teenager, and five Shetland Sheepdogs survived together in that 20’… and we were all still friends when we got home!

  2. Carol,
    Your vacation sounds amazing, but what’s even more amazing is you arrived home and were still friends!

  3. I took a couple weeks off blogging while on vacation, too, and it was refreshing. I spent my time visiting family in Michigan, which involved 7 hours on a plane (each way) with a two year old and a 10 month old, culminating in drinking a lot of wine 🙂

  4. Meghan,
    Seven hours on a plane with babies, you are a brave woman. I have friends in Michigan and they say it is beautiful out there in the summer.

    Thanks for stopping by,
