why yes, we are insane

Yesterday, we spent a whopping 20 straight hours in the car driving from Texas to Michigan. (We're blessed to have the whole week off for Thanksgiving!). We left at 4:20 AM and got there at 1:35 AM (technically 2:35 with the time change). Here are the highlights of the trip:

6:03 AM
Max turns off the radio. We sit in silence for a minute or two. I ask: "So, is this going to be a silent car trip, then?" Max: "SHHHH!"

7:38 AM
Max is driving. He suddenly puts both hands in the air, shouting: "LOOK! No hands!!"

11:45 AM
I say: "Hasn't Barney been great? He's been so content on my lap this whole time, he hasn't even whined."
Barney: "whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine."

5:54 PM
Max: "I couldn't pee in my pants, even if I wanted to."

8:59 PM
Max: "Is time standing still or is it just me?"

11:14 PM
Max: "If it wasn't for Christianity, I'd probably be a sociopath."

What!? 20 hours of driving!? Holy road trip. You definitely get really desperate for ANYTHING that's even a minute's worth of entertainment on those long drives. Wow. Hope the trip back goes smoothly!

I still can't believe that you drove the whole ride in one shot. Have a great week in the Midwest...and the cold temps! ;)

Hahaha!!! My recap was a little more detailed than this but I probably could have gotten away with this. I'll have to try this method for my next holiday recap. LOL! Your 20 hour drive makes my crazy traveling seem like a piece of cake. Wow!
