We Made It!

We arrived in Arlington, Texas yesterday around dinner time. We had a great trip driving from California to Texas filled with some great memories. Our Dodge Caravan was packed full along with four suitcases and a stroller on top of the van. The boys did wonderful for almost the entire time in the car. I sat in the very back with Josiah and Levi so I could meet their needs quickly. I think that made a big difference. Caleb enjoyed his own space in the middle and Bailey traveled well on the floor. And Kerry drove the entire time. We were able to find hotels/motels that allow dogs. The highlight of the trip for the boys was celebrating Christmas on the road. They got to open their presents spread out along the way in the car, and they opened their stockings at our first hotel. They thought it was so much fun. What great memories!
