The boys had a backpack that I don't think was ever unpacked as we spent the entire drive either watching movies (Little Rascals, Looney Tunes and Disney everything ever produced) and seat dancing. In the event that you were wondering, you can ABSOLUTELY choreograph dances with a seat belt and one hand (mostly) on the steering wheel. If you screw up the lyrics to anything by Skynyrd, Ice, Ice Baby or Call Me Maybe, I will repeat the song and give you a second chance. Then I will just laugh at you for another 10 miles.
We laughed so hard on that trip. I had the boys undivided attention, well mostly. Except for the hour and half during the Anime movie. I am a dork, admittedly, but that level of dorkdom is too much even for me. So I let them have that to themselves while I indulged in some Beach Music and some Scritti Politti. We decided that our Musical Palette needs it own zip code it's so wide.
Around 8:30p I started getting a little antsy. My left arm gets sore when I drive that long. Something to think about: wearing a ponytail when driving on a road trip SEEMS like a good idea. Natch, it is not. You can't lean your head back and eventually that ponytail is going to make you stabby. Ergo you have 2 choices, wear it down (which I did until 8:30p) or sport pigtails. Check and check.
