Should I be excited about the prospect of driving 28 hrs. in 2 days? My husband and I are driving all the way back to Minneapolis to visit our family there. Are we crazy?
We wanted to fly, buy tickets are insanely expensive. Has anyone else run into that problem this summer? We also looked at taking a train, but the price was even higher than flying!
Looks like we will be stuck driving 2 days straight with this lovely little lady in the car.
If you remember correctly, this is the same drive we did last year, but this time we will have a much less-crowded car. I also think that Layla will be a little better since she is older now. I hope!
Any tips for occupying a little kid for an insanely long drive?
I will definitely bring books and the laptop for DVDs. We also plan on making her run for 15min when we stop for bathroom and gas breaks.
I'm trying to psych myself out and pretend that I'm really excited for the drive itself, when in reality, I'm not!
I am, however, looking forward to seeing my husband's family and all our friends back in Minneapolis, as well as my dear friend Idil who moved all the way to North Dakota. Yes, there are Somalis everywhere!
I am really looking forward to getting Sambusa at my favorite spot, The Cairo grill, as well as getting a couple new skirts at the Somali mall!
I'll post pics of the trip, maybe not until we get back, but I promise to share!
