Seriously, this is worst year for construction. I mean it is crazy bad. Chicago to Green Bay should only take us about 4 hours. This last weekend (and last weekend too for that matter) took us 6 hours! My kids can barely last the 4 hours, so needless to say it was not a fun ride. There is only so much you can do in a Prius with a 5 year old and a 2 (aff) year old. We did have our portable DVD player (aff), but that only works for so long.
Besides the hellish drive, our trip was great. I got to see family both days and catch up. My only complaint is that it was hot and muggy. But that's summer for you. 🙂
I've got a couple of pictures I'll be uploading (when I find my camera) of the kids with their newest cousin Gabe! And for those who don't know it's my sister's birthday today. Make sure you head over to Karebear Central to wish her a happy birthday!
