The LONG journey....

Once upon a time, in a far away land (known to those who live in Georgia as Powder Springs), there lived a family. Oh what fun it is to see this family get ready for a looooonngg journey together to a far away place called Mobile, Alabama :-). This is where the family will spend Christmas. But first, at 8:00am the puppy has to be dropped off to be boarded for a few days. Then we have to load the van with all the luggage AND gifts (THIS should've been done the night before). Then we finally leave the house at 9:05am to drop grandma back off at her house as she'll be spending Christmas with her grandson and his family. THEN it's off to IHOP for breakfast. FINALLY, the long, borning journey to lovely, Mobile, Alabama begins. I sure wish I had thought to bring some sort of sedative or MORE scrapbook magazines... as this has GOT to be the most boring 4.5 hours a family can spend together. We have successfully taught the kids NOT to ask..."Are we there YET?" However, I will admit those words did silently cross my lips during our ride. For the record, and if you've ever wondered, there are approximately 600 million trees between Montgomery and Mobile...and NOTHING else!!!
