We made it in Thursday evening, safe and sound. Sarah was wonderful on the trip. She did not enjoy travelling once it got dark outside, but we found that turning a light on in the car and reading the same book over and over again kept her entertained! I think Holly memorized Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Very Hungry Caterpillar on this trip. :)
Thursday was a very long day. We woke at 3:00 am and were on the road by 4. This got us to Tim's parents' by 6:00pm. We were all exhausted and are still recovering.
It is great to be in Ohio again. Driving here was amazing. We all really enjoyed watching the landscape changes over the 4-day trip. I was amazed at how quickly I forgot what Ohio looks like in the fall! I am enjoying the changing leaves, the open fields of green grass, and the lack of fences around all the homes! California is beautiful, but now I am able to appreciate that Ohio is too. However...it has been raining since we got here!
