'Fishing River'

Fishing River is officially known as Fish River, but according to John Luke it is most certainly called Fishing River. And that is where we have been. Resting {Ha,Ha!}, relaxing, and enjoying some cooler weather!
Most of our trips are extremely long. And not necessarily in distance. I mean long as in very stressful! Our children are NOT 'riders' by any stretch of the imagination and usually we've run out of tricks within the first 10 minutes! To keep our sanity we sing, jam out, watch TV, dance, read books, look at equipment magazines, look at anything and everything that might be of interest outside of the vehicle, eat snacks, play with toys, drink juice/milk, etc.... This particular point in the trip down, we were singing 'If you're happy and you know it'...

And then we made a quick pit-stop for a waffle cone, and a brownie earthquake. While there, a little girl practiced driving...

Looks like fun! We are right there with you with the long trips. They started out just being a trip to Wal-Mart, and now we are (knock on wood) up to a good 1 & 1/2 hrs to 2 hrs before its desperation among the parents. They will get better!
