Driving Home from New Years

Driving home after a fun weekend of sledding and spending time with the Rasners was a NIGHTMARE!!!! It usually takes us 5 hours to get home but this time, it took us 11 hrs. That's right, 11 HOURS! The usual fwy was closed due to weather conditions so we had to take an alternative route. Snow, and holiday weekend traffic and road closures made it a perfect storm for 11 hrs of bumper to bumper HELL!

The kids had never seen snow fall before so they were thrilled when we let them stick their heads out the window and try to eat the snow (Ahh, memories of my own childhood bliss)!
All I have to say is, Thank goodness for DVD players in the car. How did our parents ever survive long road trips without them?

Putty also enjoyed sticking his head out the window!

You want to know how we survived long road trips without DVD players? Our parents put us in the trunk! It was legal WAY back then. Ha ha J/K
We would lay in the back window (literally) & look up at the stars. THAT was legal... not sure how we all survived, but we did. Woo hoo the good ol' days when we didn't have to wear seat belts & we could keep our guns on the dash.
