Day 1

After not getting much sleep, our alarm went off at 5:15am. O.M.G. I rolled out of bed and took a shower while Russ got dressed and packed the rest of the stuff into the car. We woke Olivia up around 6am, got her a sippy of milk, and left around 6:30am.
The ride down wasn't too bad. Olivia fell asleep after about 45 minutes of driving in the morning. After she woke up, we stopped to change her diaper and give her a snack. Put on a DVD of Max and Ruby for her. We were half way there and stopped at a big rest stop with food and gas. I changed Olivia into her dress and changed her diaper. While standing in line for pizza, she peed ALL over me. I just changed her, so you can imagine how much pee she was holding! So.. I went and changed her again and we ate our pizza.
We went outside for her to run around and get some energy released. She pooped. WTF?!? 3 diaper changed in the span of 20 minutes. After that dipe change, we headed back on the road. I put on Dora for her this time, and after 15 minutes she fell asleep, right on schedule for her 12:00 nap.

After Olivia woke up from her nap, we put on some Backyardigans for her and she was fine until we hit North Carolina. We stopped at the Welcome Center and let her run around a bit, but she was still pretty cranky about being cooped up in the car all day. We finally arrived at my mum's work around 2:30pm. So, the trip took us about 8.5 hours. Before we had Olivia, we usually made the trip in about 6.5hours. I wonder what holds us up now? :)

Sounds like she traveled pretty well for you. Hope the drive back goes as smoothly. Wee Man didn't do so well on the way back - He was like are you kidding me - I'm back in the car AGAIN!! Whoever invented the travel dvd player was a genius - thank goodness for the Backyardigans.
