The first day went pretty well, we got to our motel right before it got real dark (I hate driving at night, makes me nervous). We thought we could get away with not bringing in the pack n plays but after half an hour of all three boys jumping on the bed, kicking the walls and pretty much partying in the dark, we caved and brought in two of them. It was about 11:30pm and within 10 min everyone was asleep! Wake up time came bright and early at 7am. We walked over to the Black Bear Diner, the boys still in their pj's, and had breakfast. We survived by the skin of our teeth, nothing broken and no skin crawling screams out of anyone. After hitting the road again we made one last stop for lunch at subway and then took the boys to play in a nice air conditioned BK playground. Made it to San Jose (45min S of SF) by 6pm in one piece but the boys were starting to lose it the last hour! After a ton of excitement and exploring an un-baby-proofed house they were tucked away in cribs by 9pm. Glad we can get back into our normal nap and bed times tomorrow!
Here are some pics of our stops along the way...The one of the river in Roseburg (umpqua? I think) should make you want to say 'I want to go to there!'
