We just returned from a massive 3-week 3,500-mile road trip vacation. Extremely unpleasant and pleasant at times. It was fun being places, just not getting there. Felt like putting the kids back in the van was a low level torture. All that said, we had some really wonderful times, the kids especially. I'm working my way through a bunch of photos I'll eventually have time to share, but for now, here's my father with Netta and Bailey on the beach in South Carolina.
