Wow, we had some traveling adventures this past holiday season. Individually, none of the events were that crazy, but when you put them all together and throw a newborn and two toddlers into mix it's blogworthy.
We had front row seats to the re-opening. The trip home only took 7 hours =)
Our final run-in with the travel gods was the most tragic, as there was an actual casualty-my sister, Kate's, 4runner. The 4runner, which Kate received as a graduation present when she graduated college, broke down while Eric, Audrey and I were borrowing it. The transmission went out just as we were driving through Chester, PA. By nothing short of a miracle, we did not spend much time stuck in Chester with baby Audrey, but the 4runner (or its transmission, really) died halfway into the driveway of Eric's parents' house. Thankfully, Eric had the foresight when he signed us up for AAA to choose the higher level package and the 4runner was towed free of charge back to Delaware for us.
This concludes the summary of our disastrous holiday travels. Pretty much anything that could go wrong did, but we had a good time through all of it. The kids were really good sports and I am pretty sure they just think that's how its supposed to be. We're traveling again in a couple weeks, so fingers crossed the travel gods have found someone else to pick on.
