The drive

Kansas sucks. I mean it totally Sucked. We were driving up to Colorado for spring break and we drove through Kansas.
First you gotta know that Brian likes to drive through the night while the car all sleeps. John drove with us and the boys chatted their boy chat- so my headphones went on and off we went. At 3am Brian was convinced to take a 5 hour energy for the last leg of the trip. 2 minutes later the highway was flashing a big sign that said "closed"! So we pull off and pick from one of the two hotel rooms in the little town of who knows what.

Next morning we headed out when it opened at 10... Lunch time we pulled over for gas, potty breaks, and lunch. The entire town was closed from a power outage... Great. Then Natalie threw up. That was wonderful. She barfed in a bag and guess what I did with it. I threw it out the window back at Kansas. THEN the highway closed again. We spent the next 2 hours walking around Walmart, after eating at McDonald's- 2 of the only places in this other town of whatever it was called.

We ended up taking the back BACK roads the rest of the way to Colorado. After passing through last chance Kansas. Barf. I didn't want to go back there ever. It did not want us to leave!!
The kids were hilarious on the trip and made me laugh the whole time. I wrote down all the funny things they said, and now I can't find it. I even wrote it down on purpose so I could record it. Darn!

Anyway, fun trip!! Coming up next, the rest of the trip!
