We were packed and ready to go. The car needed an inspection before we left. We found out the parking brake wasn't working. When dh tore it apart he found several other issues with the rear brakes and rotors etc. (he wasn't the one to replace them last). So two days of replacing everything and we were in ally ready and a day late.
So we left earlier (much later than planned) and things were good for 1/2 an hour when we realized the stuff on top needed to be tied down better, we needed Dramamine (packed it away oops), and I also packed the phone charger on top. So we stop at the only Walmart around. It's a Walmart market. Didn't have most if what we needed. While tying the luggage back down it started pouring rain.....on us. So much for my shower.
Then we hit rush hour traffic in a big city. The kids were getting hungry right about the time I planned. I was going plan a stop at a rest area and let them eat and run. Yeah it's still raining.

This is going to be a long trip. 50 out of 500mi complete. Here's some pics along the way just for fun.

Not my best angle but oh well. I finally got so stressed I started laughing hysterically.

 Oh my gosh!  I hate road trips and you just illustrated why!  :)  They never take as little time as our GPS says, do they?

Your daughter is so precious!  My family is infamous for our bad luck with vacations--sickness, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.  People always ask me when we're taking vacation so that they know NOT to take theirs!  Good luck!
