AK2MT - Day 4

July 25, 2013 - Day 4

Prince George, British Columbia - Tacoma, Wa 595 miles

Fuel Stops -2

Pit stops -3

Movies- Strawberry Shortcake, The Cat in the Hat, Tangled, Curious George, the beginning of

After a long night of Dillan getting up and wandering the tent and crying, I was more than ready to start the day. The boys found blueberries and raspberries to munch on while Brandon and I tore down camp.

The kids started getting a restless starting as soon as we put them into their car seats today. They fought over toys, food didn't sound good, movies didn't hold their interest. It took a few hours of driving for everyone to settle down. After this the rest of the day was business as usual. Overall the boys did so great on this trip. Friends and family kept telling us that driving with two small boys would be hell, that we would be driving night and day in hopes of getting home quicker, that no amount of books, movies, and activities would distract them, that we'd want to give our kids something to put them to sleep. I'm so glad my boys proved them wrong. They were a joy to travel with.

The remainder of our Canadian drive was gorgeous; Valleys, mountains, fields, cows, horses, lakes and rivers gave us lots to look at. The boys loved the long trains and the many tunnels we drove through.

Broke down and bought food in Canada. TOTALLY worth the price.
Lovely construction

The border security was a breeze to get through. We weren't asked if we were carrying guns, plants, fruits/veggies, etc. I think that Brandon's military orders to PCS played a big role in that.

The USA!
1st hot meal in 4 days.
Attempted iPhone Space Needle shot at night.

We decided our trailer of belongings would be safest on base, so we made room reservations at Billeting on McChord AFB in Tacoma, Wa. We took much needed showers and fell into bed shortly after 12:00am, pacific time.
