Yesterday I took a road trip. Drove from Birmingham, Alabama to Vicksburg, Mississippi just to see the Mississippi River.
I think it was about 9 1/2 hours of total driving and I wasn't alone. I had my three kids with me (ages 6, 4 and 2) and my in-laws.
To be honest, it wasn't my idea. My in-laws wanted to go, to drive over the mighty Mississippi, a goal off their bucket list, although they never referred to it that way.
