Road Tripping 2012

We hit the road yesterday headed to Boston for a family reunion! I even remembered to pack our traditional Christensen family road trip CD, including hits like 'Hit the Road Jack' , 'On the Road Again', 'Drive', 'Another One Bites the Dust' , ' with a few patriotic ones thrown in like 'Proud To Be An American' just for the 4th of July:) My boys all groan when I whip it out but they can't fool me... I know they secretly love it as they happily sing along!

Crank it up, I say!

Next time I'm adding 'Dixie Land Delight'! Just to remind them of home! Making memories... I tell you!

Since today is Coleman's 10th Birthday we started the day off with a fabulous Denny's Breakfast in Allenstown, Pennsylvania!
After a night all squished into the LAST room at the nearby Courtyard Marriott. It was cozy:) and let me tell you we were lucky to find that one, I think Brad tried for an hour to find a room somewhere enroute!
It was fun to have my birthday boy sleeping so close-- at 5am he woke up and whispered to me "Is it my birthday now Mom?"
It was a treat to the first person to give birthday wishes. I whispered to him how much I love him and will never forget the happy day he was born as he drfted back to sleep. I layed there all snug with my boys feeling so blessed!

We are doing our best to make being stuck in the car for 5 hours on your birthday fun:) Now he is riding shotgun and opening a little gift each hour of today's trek. So far a DS Brain teaser game and neon gummy worms. This evening we will be with lots of family to help us celebrate this boy!

I will leave you with a shot of our current location:

Due to not paying our trusty Tom Tom enough attention (oops) we missed a turn and ended up experiencing some big city traffic and toll booths. We are on the George Washington Bridge crossing the Hudson River right now. I am a excited thinking 'That is New York City ' right there and even a little tempted to stop and check it out-- but the big NYC will have to wait, we have sweet little cousins waiting!

It is Boston or Bust for this crew!
