Yes, I braved a 10 1/2 hour trip with three kids in the backseat and no husband.  It would have been a breeze if Abby was over 1 year and eating solid foods, but a nursing 4-month old makes it interesting.  We pulled over on the side of the road to feed her a couple of times, but we made other stops to eat, use the bathroom, and get out some wiggles.  There was only one point when Abby was screaming for an hour that I thought I might not make it, but then she slept for 2 1/2 hours straight!  We had a great time visiting with Grandma Geissal, Grandpa Geissal & Grandma Andy, Uncle Ben, Aunt Lindsay, and our new niece Alexandra, Aunt Karen, and Uncle Larry.  The kids loved being on the farm, eating on the screened-in porch, playing with the dogs, hiking at the local parks, and visiting the children’s museums.  Here are a few pics…
