The Journey Begins
The journey began with a mission...make it to Iowa as quickly as possible with as little crying and yelling as possible. The task required a lot of toys, portable DVD and lovies for the boys!
Jude went the extra mile and added the thumb! It's a must have when he's tired or bored. Much to my dismay it's usually accompanied by him rubbing his bookie on his foot (as seen above) wether he has a shoe on or not! Yuk!
As you can see, our driver was focused and determined. We made it to Kansas City around 7:00 hoping to let the boys swim in the hotel pool...it was under renovation. Major Bummer! Liam was near melt down, but we needed to eat. Got back to the hotel around 9:00 and everyone crashed. I'd like to say it was a good night's rest, but it wasn't. Another disappointment. Jude was getting over being sick and Liam was in the beginning stages. And such is how this journey began.
