Vacation post #2 - The drive to Corolla

We decided to break the 12-hour day into two days since we weren't sure how Isabella would do in the car or how my back would feel. We planned to leave at 9 a.m. Friday and drive to Fredicksburg, VA, 6 hours from Stow. We planned to leave then so we'd get through Washington D.C. before rush hour and get to our hotel early enough to relax and enjoy some swimming.

Plans are bound to fail.

Isabella, Hama Mary (Isabella's new word for Grandma) and I started with colds earlier in the week. We were all beginning to feel better but Kevin starting feeling sick Thursday night. By Friday morning, he knew he had a bad infection so we spent Friday morning on the phone with his doctor and the pharmacy. We got him a prescription but it caused us to leave at 11 a.m. instead of 9 a.m.

We made excellent time until we hit D.C. We sat in traffic for nearly 3 hours. Instead of getting to our hotel by 3 p.m. we didn't check in until after 7 p.m. We were all tired and grumpy and stuffy, but Isabella and I still made time to swim.

Day two went a little better. We made great time to North Carolina but hit some traffic caused by an accident just outside the Outer Banks. By 2:30 Saturday we were unpacked and in the pool.

One tired little girl!
