Deja vu.... 20+ hours in the car?

Gave you ever seen Alfred Hitchcock's movie "The Birds," where a bunch of xrows descend on this town and attack people? The yearly southern migration of every type of bird give the same feel as the beginning of the movie. You glance over once, there are a handful of birds. You look back and there are a couple hundred. A minute later, there are clouds of black, noisy birds everywhere. It is incredible to see them try to land and rest:
Anyway, our day one of driving was uneventful. The kids know the drill: eat, DVD, sleep. Repeat. Here the girls are waiting for mommy and Tonito to cook some delicious mac 'n cheese bowls in the gas station:). That, served with mandarins and carrots sticks is a very orange meal.

If it weren't so boring, I would write a book about staying sane while driving across the country with 3 kids under 5 and 2 dogs... :) Actually boring means uneventful, no mishaps or surprises, and that means a successful trip! So we like boring drives!
July- drive to Mexico
August- drive home
October- drive to Chicago... 3 weeks later drive home
November- drive to Chicago... 1 week later drive home
December- drive to Mexico.
