your First road trip: we survived ;-)

Last week we embarked on a trip off to NYC to see Arie's cousins
we did this via the car with grandma, grandpa, great grandma, the mama and the papa and a LOT of stuff
the way down went great.  took two days arie played. ate and napped
the way back well not so much ended up driving all the way through bc someone woke up and refused to go back to sleep.  so we kept driving.  made it home at 7:45...but we were home! :)
