The best decision we made was to get on the road early. We got the boys up and were on our way by 4:30 a.m. Luke went right back to sleep (awesome!), but Noah didn't want to miss a thing and never did go back to sleep. I told him he could close his eyes, but he replied, "No mom, I want to see da wights!" He was a happy traveler, so I guess the early wake up didn't phase him much. On both trips we only stopped for breakfast and lunch.
There were few wiggles to work out because Noah got to watch movies in the car for the first time.
Luke was a champ too. He took his naps on schedule, played with toys, and then 'requested' a few times to have some company in the back seat. Can you blame him? Being rear facing is a bore! It was fun to join both boys back there, most of the time. :-)
