We're in Michigan.
The drive took 17 hours.
I don't really have anything to say about the drive except that we saw Santa Claus. Yes, we did! Santa was in full regalia. His white beard and hair looked freshly combed. He was smiling softly to himself as we passed him in our rented minivan someplace in Ohio.
Sadly, I don't have a photograph of this momentous event. We didn't realize that we were passing Santa until we were already past him, you see. As we glanced next to us into the light blue Prius with the "My Other Car is a Sleigh" bumper sticker, we all gasped in surprise and shouted, "It's SANTA CLAUS!!"
Santa Claus drives a Prius. Isn't that just great?
Santa is awesome!
That was the highlight of the long, long, long drive to Michigan.
The kids have been excited about seeing snow. And guess what? There's no snow. It's cold and brown and dreary here. And there is no snow in the forecast.
The kids are bummed.
But still...we saw Santa Claus! And THAT was pretty special!
Going home to Texas...trip re-cap.
