We Made It!

Well it was a long drive (12 hours with all the stops!), but we made it, and it was actually a nice trip. We drove up through the mountains and it was just a gorgeous drive. Theo was a dream (not even a hint of car sickness!). Thankfully we were able to fit his huge crate in the care with no problem. When he was in the crate and tired, he slept. But when he was awake, he cried and cried and acted like we had locked him up in prison. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I gave in. Amidst Theo's crying, I gave in and let him out of his crate and into my lap. Bad julo! Hehe. But as soon as he was out of his crate, he was back to being his quite, mellow self. His favorite place to sleep was the center console between the two front seats. He would lay down on it, put his head down behind it (at a 90 degree angle from his body) and go to sleep. I don't understand how we sleeps in some of the positions he does. Hehe.

On our travels he saw and experienced lots of new things. He saw ducks, he saw ducks doing it (I'm traumatized, it was very violent), and most notably, he saw snow! I've been feeding him a lot of crushed ice lately to sooth his gums from the teething, so when he saw the snow he thought it just a huge mound of crushed ice. He jumped right in and started chomping away. It was adorable! I have some pictures and video to share later.

So it looks like, for the most part, Theo is a pro at long drives. Yay!

In the interest of saving space on my camera, I transfered everything to my laptop, thinking I could upload everything while I was here. No waiting! Unfortunately, I didn't think it all the way through. My husband left yesterday morning with out laptop! So no pictures till he gets back at the end of the week. :( Boo!

Hey! Glad you guys are enjoying your road trip! I'd looove to see photos when you guys are back :) We're actually on our little road trip now (we finally made it to Austin this morning after 25-hours of driving!). Unlike the snow Theo saw for the first time, Bryson saw desert and cactus :D We've definitely got to trade road trip stories with our corgis when we're back!
