Day two of our adventure, Friday, October 7 was another long driving day, but at least we got to do the driving in the daylight. We loaded into our rented mini van, started the movies and were on our way.
Things to note from day 2:
*Elliott has decided that Harry Potter is the greatest thing ever. We are borrowing the books a couple at a time from Aunt Karen and he spent nearly the entire day in the car reading book number 3.
*Wyatt is a great car traveler. He just sets up shop and hangs out.
*Quinn is great in the car, too....as long as he can keep eating. He may have eaten his body weight in hi-chews in the car.
*Ross had major work drama the entire drive. It was so stressful for him, and consequently me. I'm not sure how many times we had to pull over so he could take a work phone call. It was rough.
*Shake Shack in Las Vegas.
*The highlight of the day for me was stopping at the 7 Magic Mountains just outside Las Vegas in Jean, Nevada. It's an art instillation that is up for two years and was super cool. You take a frontage road, park in the dirt and walk out to 7 gigantic towers of bright and fluorescent rocks. We were all impressed.
*Semi truck on FIRE on the side of the road in Victorville.
*Eating dinner at a hole in the wall Italian place in Anaheim called Carolina's. It was absolutely delish!
