After we spend the day in San Francisco, we drove a few hours late that night and slept at a hotel in Redding, CA. Then the next day we drove the rest of the way home. It was about 9 hours that day in the car, so it wasn't too bad and the drive was scenic, so that always helps. The kiddos did really well in the car. It helps that there is a lot of space, so we can bring toys, books, games, and even watch a few movies along the way. We had a great time and it was a nice one, since we are all in baby mode now. Less than a month until #3 is here.
