Actually, it was quite a pleasant drive. We left my parents house early. Honestly, we couldn't find any hotels much closer anyway. So we sucked up the two-hour drive and the early departure.
The school was friendly, and the kids helping us were pretty interested in what we were doing. I told them I was from California. Makes me sound cooler.
On our way back down, we stopped in nearby Littleton to check out Chutter's--home of the world's longest candy counter. Yessir, over 600 jars of candy across 112 feet of counter, all for our perusal. We rationalized our visit (and subsequent confectionary-partaking) with a goal of finding unique candies for our family's upcoming annual gingerbread party. Couldn't find a better place for candy-finding than Chutters! We filled our bags and our cheeks, and made the two-hour drive back south even happier than when we drove up.
