Father’s Day wasn’t exactly ideal this year. We were on our way to visit family in North Carolina, and decided to split the 20+ hour drive into three days. We pretty much had no idea how Greenlea would react to being in a car for longer than two hours at a time, so we packed up a new Leapfrog, powered up an iPad and were on our way. (Ok, the car was actually packed to the brim . . . I’m somewhat surprised the three of us fit).
We stayed in Chicago the first night (and were treated like royalty, thanks to friends who live there) and then were on to Charleston, West Virginia. I found a hotel that had a pool for G, a bar for Zack & I, and a nice firepit and the view of the river in the back. That’s where we spent Father’s Day . . . after Zack drove 8 hours through mostly rain, with a (sometimes) screaming toddler in the backseat. Again, not ideal . . . but we made it to Carolina Beach the next day and will be here for a couple of weeks. We will enjoy every last bit of sunshine and ocean until we have to leave.
