This was a family vacation taken by me, my husband Jon, and our three children: Charles 9, Brooklyn 3, and Alyssa 1. We had high hopes of making it to Arizona in 24 hours and to do so are driving straight through the night. We left this vacation at 12:00 pm and headed out for the long adventure. Lincoln, Ne
We arrived in Lincoln, Ne around 6:00 and decided it was a good place to stop for some supper. We decided on Kentucky friend chicken. The food was good but the town not so much as my husband got hustled for money in the parking lot. The town seemed dirty and the people very scary. We were ready to go as we had a long trip ahead of us and were not even a quarter of the way there.
To keep 3 kids occupied in the car it took lots of activites such as hand held gaming systems, DVD player, and color wonder markers. To the left is a picture of our Son Charlie and our daughter Brooklyn.
Below is a picture of our youngest traveler...Alyssa. Colorado
We made it to Denver, Co around 2 am and the kids were already fast asleep besides my son who had a bit of trouble falling asleep. We cleared Denver in about 25 mins and cleared Colorado Springs in about 30 mins. Mine you there is NO traffic in Colorado in the middle of the night which made the trip pass really fast. At this point I had done most of the driving and decided it was time for my husband to take over......an to sleep I went!
