September 2, 2010 - Longer Than Expected...

So how long does it take to drive a 5 1/2 hour one-way trip with a 10 1/2 month old infant?

A long, long time.

Heading out on our "working vacation," we anticipated the 5 1/2 hours of driving plus a little extra for stops.

Then enter "infant who suddenly HATES her car seat." Fun!

This required many stops at various gas stations between Maine and New York, as we headed back to the lake. Yes, our trip to Maine was only one day. ::slaps head::

I know, she looks happy. It's deceiving. It's because she is not in her car seat.

And if gas station weeds will make the kid happy, well then, bring them on!

Another stop and daddy seems to be the one going a little crazy.

A little caffeine fortification for mommy and daddy makes things a little more manageable.

Goodness, where's the lake? And our 5 1/2 hour trip turned into 7 1/2 hours.

I feel your pain. Jae hates the car seat too. Road trips are such a nightmare!

Oh, you're a brave woman! I love the expression on your hubby's face!

I don't know if it was brave... or a little naive. Let's just say we won't be doing that again anytime soon!
