The 16 Hour Drive


We’re going to be driving 16 hours today.

No, it’s not really a joy trip.

One of Tom’s Uncles has passed away from cancer so we’re going to pay our respects. We weren’t terribly close but it’s still nice to honor family members so please keep his family in his thoughts and prayers.

The thing is though, we’re in Oklahoma.

Tom’s family is in Ohio.

So yeah. 16 hours.

We’re leaving tonight so the kids will be sleeping through most of it. Or so we hope.

Otherwise it’s going to be a long trip.

Wish us luck.

You can follow our adventures on my Twitter where, if the kids work my nerves enough I'll leave directions on where I'll be dropping them off if anyone wanted a free child.

(No, but seriously, should I be investing in those earphones where you can't hear ANYTHING?)


In other news, a few people were curious on what Natalie was wearing in my Corn Maze post. She had on this:

And yes, naturally, it's from Gymboree.

(Not Tommy's outfit. His is from the glorious Target.)


  1. CUTE!!!

    Oh my. So sorry for your loss. Praying y'all have a safe trip and that the kids sleep the WHOLE TIME! ;o)

  2. Ahhh, Amber I'm sorry about the family's loss. But it will be good to have family time together for a 16-hour drive, no? And I'm sure the stories stemming from your trip will be hilarious, as always!!!!!

    Kids are still really adorable!!

  3. Oh my. Sorry for your loss, and I hope the trip isn't horrid.

  4. Good luck!

    I'm sure you'll earn good karma for the effort.

    And the kids are adorable.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    But I must comment, you know they have these things that fly now, right? Like in the sky, and they only take a few hours. Just sayin.

  7. This sort of thing (the roadtrip) is why folks should have children at a young age.

  8. Good luck on the road trip! Watch out for escape exotic animals eating everyone! (Seriously - check out the news)
