Summer Vacation - Day One

Today was the first day of our first vacation with our son. A lot of firsts today. We drove about 500 miles in just under 7 hours and still have about 4 hours to go tomorrow - CRAZY, but hopefully worth it in the end. Sean did OK? in the car. It was a long trip for him to be strapped into his car seat - he is, in general, a very active boy. The first section of the trip took about 2.5 hours - no problem, he took a nap. Part two, close to three hours, not so good. He wanted to play and was getting tired of the few toys that were available to him. Sorry about your luck, son, but we have got to keep going. Part three was pretty good, he played a little, ate a little, and even slept a little before we got to Spartanburg, SC for our one night stay.
Seven hours in a car is a very long time, even for Mary and I. So we got changed and headed to the pool, for a short relaxing swim - it was very nice. Now it is time for bed, and we need to rest up for another exciting day tomorrow.
Good night, and I will post again soon.
