Three words

Dram.a.mine. Works like a charm. Not only does it have the ability to prevent motion sickness on our 15 hour drive to Aspen but it also has the added benefit of making the children extremely drowsy. I could be on a commercial.

We're well on our way and have only made one stop in the last seven hours and that was for a little breakfast at McDonald's. Dea was thrilled because, you know, he works there and can hardly get enough sasuage biscuits as it is. I myself could eat my weight in Egg McMuffins and the kids love the hash browns because one time I told them they were Crabby Patties just like Spongebob makes. Sometimes the cashier gets flustered when they say, "can I please have two Crabby Patties?"

Sadie has been a trooper but started asking if 'we were in Colorado yet?' while we were still in Dallas. Since then, she's kept it to about 5 times an hour. She has self control that way.

Praying you are there and doing well. All along I thought it was an 18 hr. drive. Mapquested it about 4 and discovered it was 15 hr. Praise the Lord for Dramamine! It works on dogs too.
Love,
Candy

My Mom was never afraid to use drugs with seven children and I won't be with mine. :)

Hope you all have a great trip!

Aspen...I hear it's warm there. ;)

So sad that we won't experience Aspen together this year! Dramamine is awesome though.

Are you posting from your blackberry? I need to figure out how to do that.
