Our last bit of driving...

Our European road trip continues as we head to Rome today.  We've had quite a bit of car time these three weeks and have  spent it in different ways. Mark has done 95% of the driving on the trip (thanks, Mark!) and has been listening to a  looong book on tape we downloaded on the iphone  ("The Warmth of Other Suns")   

I've  done some writing in the car (not as much as i would have liked, but hey! Europe to look at!) I've  also been the family flight attendant --doling out water, snacks, and entertainment options as we go. 

The four  kids (all over 5'9") have dealt admirably with very tight quarters in this itty bitty van. They've slept, watched DVDs on our two little portable DVD players we brought with us, listened to music or books on ipods, and played raucous games together on the ipad. Here they are playing a game called 'Badlands' together.
