This trip was quite the adventure as we rented an RV. We drove 11 hours the first day and stopped north of Pittsburgh for the night. Let me tell you, the RV was the way to go. We tried to be safe and kept the kids in their car seats most of the way, but it was super nice to be able to fix snacks, drinks, lunch and have potty breaks without stopping. The kids loved the RV and were so excited to be riding and sleeping in it.
Before finishing the drive to NY (or, 'The York' as Owen calls it) we visited an animal park. What a fun place and just the right size for the kids. We saw all kinds of animals, from bunnies to bears to hyenas and baby leopards. The kids got to feed and pet all kinds of animals.
It's sort of hard to tell in the picture, but the reindeer rested his head on Anderson's head. Their antlers were fuzzy and we got to hear them 'click' when they walked.
