Considered mentally unstable - a bit loony - delusional (thinks a road trip of approximately 4600 kilometres, clear across the country, to visit her in laws, with the above mention accomplices "might be fun".

Let the planning begin - our summer trip is only 85 days away!

Total Estimated Driving Time: 51 hours 11 minutes (ONE WAY!)

Total Estimated Distance: 4597.99 kilometers

I was so worried about the kids' passport photos. I took all three on my own to Costco to get them done. I have heard nightmares about kids smiling, blinking, etc. and it taking 10-40 shots to get a presentable and acceptable shot. Well, each of my darlings got the first take right...and then mine turned out so terrible, but I sure wasn't going to be the one having to retake the photo!!!!! Oh well - what can you do?!?!?!?!?!

That's some trip you're planning. Kids not being allowed to smile for passport pics is just loony. The colour is very good in your pics. The passport people can be very picky.

WOW! You are brave! But I bet it WILL end up being fun. As long as you make frequent stops. ;)

They look so serious! Good luck with your trip. We discussed a 17 hour trip south this summer. Actually Bob suggested and I said, "No!" I told him I would rather stay at home than be in a car, pregnant, with a toddler who hates sitting still.

So what trip are you taking? Sigh. You just made me think of the fact that I keep forgetting to get my daughter's passport and she's going to Germany with my parents in August...I know it's a while away, but I know I'll forget and have to pay more for it. Anyways, your picture isn't look nice in that picture!
