We are in Mississippi! It was a quick trip through sweet home Alabama on I-10! Sunday was our first day traveling in the Rv during the day. It was an adjustment for the kids to go from being able to roam freely in their “home” to having to be seated and buckled! They thought they should be able to run, play and party all though out the RV like they had been. Thankfully, after a few tears, (well a whole lot of tears from Kanyon) the kids quickly became interested in the items I had brought along to entertain them! We had Mad libs to fill in, the state license plate game to play, books to color, books to flip through, journals to write in and snacks to munch on! We also had bought great walkie talkies that we were able to use to talk to the kids from up front. We are not far away but it made it fun for the kids! Playing eye spy out the big windows was a huge hit! Oh my goodness, being able to go potty in the RV and not have to pull off the road to use a nasty bathroom was the best thing ever!! I no longer have to cringe and die inside when I hear “I have to use the bathroom!” Since we can all visually see the kitchen as we drive along, the kids would constsntly think they were hungry. At one point, they asked if I could cook them a meal. I laughed aloud thinking are you serious right now? Do you not realize daddy is sweating in the drivers seat trying to keep our RV moving along safely? 😉 No sweetie, I can not make a home cooked meal when we are solely trying to stay on the road and get to our destination alive! 🙂 Thankfully Ricky is getting more comfortable with driving the Rv. He thinks he needs another several hundred miles before he can stop white knuckling the poor steering wheel. Did it get loud and crazy at times? You bet it did! Did Ricky and I glance at each other and wish we had ear muffs on to drown out the madess and perhaps some benadryl to go around? Of course! 😉 But this is all part of the wonderful package of having a big family. We were just so happy to keep up with all the kids and not leave anyone behind at our rest stops. Even though one time, after we had been back on the road for 30 minutes, Ricky did ask if Kaleb had gotten back into the RV. I said hello honey, I sure hope he is after all that time! 🙂 We truly are having a good time. One thing I do wish though is that they had drive thrus for RVs, that would be great! There is never a dull moment in this RV life, that is for sure!
