553 total miles. 10 hour car ride. 3 kids who did really well. 2 McDonalds stops (early breakfast and late night dinner). Sun coming up on our way there. 2 potty stops. 30 people. 58 hugs. 3 turkeys. 2 pots of mashed potatoes. Full table with ALL the fixin’s. 2 pieces of pie (apple and pumpkin). 4 “buckeye bars” Kate made. 2 long tables full of family that we don’t get to see very often. 2 muddy boys from playing outside after supper. 1 sad/crabby Molly from not feeling up to par. 7 Ziploc bags of leftovers. 3 kids falling asleep 20 minutes into the car ride home. Sun going down on our way home.

Doing it in one day? Worth it!
