so, the first 3 1/2 hours were smooth sailing. James told me maybe i was right and this trip WAS actually a good idea. We stopped at a rest area to potty and get treats. Not sure which state, Iowa or Kansas. Adam demanded to keep his change from the vending machine, which we needed for the other boys. I asked nicely and he refused to which I proceeded to pry it from his little grubby hand. To which he responded by screaming bloody murder. Then he proceeded to kick and punch the living shit out of the vending machines. It was insane. Probably his worse tantrum to date. Throwing himself on the ground because he hurts his hands. James nearly dying of embarrassment assisted me in picking him up and putting him in the van. I am sure it looked like a kidnapping except who would put "that" willingly into a car? We got him restrained and pulled back onto the highway. Making the horrible mistake of not removing sharp and heavy objects from his place in the third row. Yes he gets the third row of the van alone for everyone's safety we thought it was the best plan at the time. We were all assaulted with shoes,dvd's, and happy meal toys. Trust me after that all harmful objects were removed from the third row each day. Thankfully the rest of the trip was met with only one major tantrum and a forgotten shoe tossed at my head. We had some interesting weather, see video in tornado alley, but arrived safely in Wichita, Kanas. I would highly recommend ROCK STAR beverage with HIGH CAFFEINE. That is all.
