As far as keeping the boys happy on the trip, I got very frustrated! The first 6 hours were great! I was rotating toys and snacks to them and there were just peachy but after their nap (a long one, too) they were impossible!!! Nothing I did made them happy! I told Nate to pull over at the next rest stop and they had some time to play while we spent and hour doing the whole door thing! We we got back in the car I told Nate, "I'm Done!" I was so frustrated from trying to entertain them and they were just throwing the toys on the floor and whining! so I ignored them! They both fussed for about 10 minutes and then they were quiet! They were staring out their windows and cuddling their blankets and they were quiet!!! I think I was just trying too hard. We stopped for dinner and then they both fell asleep for the rest of the trip!
As for us, no sleep! I promised Nate that I would stay awake the entire trip and talk to him so that he would stay alert. We talked about everything! Some things twice! we also played a trivia game on his iPod that was really fun and helped the time fly by faster. We were doing great until 20 miles outside of SLC we were losing it! But we were so close!! I was telling Nate to stay alert and he was trying so hard but started getting a little loopy and I started to get a little droopy! We made it though! Everyone is safe and we got some sleep and are looking forward to more sleep tonight! We are going to stay here until Wednesday morning and then it's off to Az! Pictures coming later, and there are some cute ones!
