Our trip home today (which took 8.5 hours on the way there) took about 12.5 hours. It wasn't a "drive home." It was an adventure. We stopped to shop. To eat. To zip-line. To climb a 40-foot climbing wall. To hike in the woods. To cross a hanging bridge. To explore a waterfall and some caves. To go out for coffee. To enjoy some outdoor parks.
One of the best trips home I've ever had! What a great Sunday :)
