Road Trip to Washington! Day 3 of Driving.

So in Boise the hotel we were at is called the Best Western Lodge. It was awesome! My favorite hotel of the trip. Photobucket

I had originally planned on getting up early and getting to the tire place the second they opened but it didn’t work out that way. Photobucket

We had an awesome, leisurely breakfast together. PhotobucketPhotobucket

We went to Les Schwab to get new tires. It took an hour and a half and while there my kids had a lot of fun playing with toys. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Brooklyn read a book. Photobucket

Ember ran wild. Playing hide and seek with whomever was willing. PhotobucketPhotobucket

My germophobe self just had to let go after the 5th time Ember laid down on the ground. The motto for the trip became, wash hands right before eating and just ignore the dirt the rest of the time! haha Photobucket

We went back to the hotel to check out. All the kids had to help me carry stuff back to the car to reload. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

I try to let Ember walk as much as possible. But she was running wild too much so I asked her to help me push the stroller to the car. That kept her right by me. I’m so smart. Photobucket

We got everything loaded and the DVD player set up and oh boy was I happy about it all. The wretchedness of the first two days were replaced by happily zoned out kiddos. PhotobucketPhotobucket

The first time I’d looked back in my rear view mirrors and been met with four quiet, happy children! PhotobucketPhotobucket

We made much better progress with the DVD players. Suddenly Payson’s previous need to pee or poop SO BAAAAAAAAAAAD was only every three or four hours rather than every half hour! 😛

We drove with only stops for food and breastfeeding once or twice until we got to the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center . (Photos in another post) Photobucket

After an awesome time there we just drove on into the night until we got to the next hotel. PhotobucketPhotobucket
