In June Bart took a group of kids/young adults to France and Spain on a study abroad. Since I couldn't go, I decided to take the kids down to California while he was gone.
I wasn't brave enough to make the whole 10 hour drive alone with four kids in 1 day, so we stayed at a hotel in Mesquite.
The kids thought it was the coolest thing EVER! (You'd think they had never been in a hotel room before)! I guess there was just something special about it being just us girls. :)
The day before I had taught the Activity Days girls some origami. Since the activity had been at our house, Addison attended even though she's not eight yet. So she was SUPER into origami for most of our trip. :)
The rest of the kids were just super into drawing. :)
After we went out for some dinner at Subway, I let the girls watch the Disney Channel for a little bit before bed time.
Splitting the drive into two days actually made it a very pleasant trip. I think I might try and talk Bart into doing it the next time we go down. :)
