14.5 hours

We finally made it home . . . 14 and a half hours later.

In hindsight we realize we should have never done that all in one day. But nobody can take away the fact that my kids rock hard core! They were sick and still managed to survive this hello long day! Gwen melted down a few times but put herself back together on her own every time. She is amazing!

Parker puked in the van. He threatened it and we didn't think he was serious. We had Gavin give him the plastic bag. Apparently he puked in the bag and we found out after we got home and realized he smelled. Gavin survived on Ibuprofen, orange juice and Sprite.

I can't get over it. My kids are so incredibly awesome! They did that trip! I feel almost dizzy the way I did when we got home from a 14 hour trip from Seattle to SLC when we were first engaged. Everyone thought we were so stupid for doing it all in one day. We did it and it was worth it. My kids did an even longer trip today and, not only survived, but are thriving! They are perky and playing and happy as can be to be home.

People thought we were crazy when we said we were driving to Utah for Thanksgiving. They really raised their eyebrows when we said we were doing it all in one day. My kids did it. Crazy or not you can't take the results away from me! I love my awesome kids. And Heath is a real trooper too because he was sick all day too but he never had me drive. I was willing to but he just kept going. My family rules! And by the way, I am so happy to be home!!!

I'm so glad you are home safe and sound. Sometimes the best part of the trip is getting back home. It sounds like you had a good time even with all the gliches.
