A planned road trip can be fun.
A planned road trip with three year olds . . . can be quite amusing, very entertaining, and also fun!
It's a long 575 miles from Illinois to Arkansas.
Not once did we hear (use your best whiny voice), "Are we there yet?"
However, we did hear:
"I dropped my book."
"I want to watch Nemo."
"Can I have another book?"
"Look at that over there."
"What's that over there?"
"Where's the Jeep?"
"I saw a horse."
And interspersed were many sleepy moments of peace and quiet and staring out the window as the low fields of Illinois passed us by, and the beautiful countryside of Missouri, and the rolling hills of Arkansas.
These three year olds? They did an AMAZING job traveling. Only a couple times did we hear the desperate plea: "I want to get out!!!" It's hard to sit for so long, strapped in a seat, not able to move around. We wanted to get out too!
We almost made it through those rolling hills without incidence. The final little stretch before we made it to the Norfork Bridge and M's tummy just couldn't take it. A five minute side-trip on the side of the road to clean up, but we made it to Grammy and Grampy's house soon after.
