The Road Trip to Wisconsin (Video)

We thought about flying to Wisconsin again this year....but, with having to purchase 4 tickets, the added cost of actually bringing luggage, and the fun and excitement of getting to the airport on time and flying with two toddlers....Well, we just decided it would be more comfortable (and fun) to drive...and it actually was!!!

Other than rain, rain, and more was a mostly uneventful trip. We took 5 days to travel 16 hours, including an extra day in St. Louis. Other than one "longish" driving day, we pretty much coordinated things with the boys nap time so that they would be sleeping on the road. They were great!!

The boys had fun exploring new places, staying in hotels, climbing on the luggage carts, watching TV, sleeping in big beds, checking out the ice machines, and swimming in the pools....We stopped at the Fantastic Caverns in Springfield, MO, we visited the Discovery Children's Museum in Rockford, IL, and, as I mentioned, we spent an extra day in St. Louis visiting the Gateway Arch and attending the "Boo at the (St. Louis) Zoo.

Like I said, it was quite a comfortable and fun road trip!!

"And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh."
