The long and winding road...

...of over 5000+ miles. When Evan first suggested that we drive east to our college reunions at the end of May, I wanted to kill him. We'd done that trip so many times before and the last time - in 2001 - was miserable. I never wanted to see the highwways of Arkansas again. But as we mulled it over and over, the 4 plane tickets, the 2 week car rental and all of the freedom we would have on the road, our decision was made.

We set off before the end of Ecole and right before Evan's birthday, destination: Yale in New Haven for his 30th college reunion. My 30th reunion at Gettysburg in Pennsylvania conveniently happened to be the following weekend so we tacked days on for travel before, a week sandwiched in the middle and the time to get home and there it was: a 2 week road trip through 13 states and thousands of miles with 4 1/2 year old we go!!
