that’s right! it’s time for yet another road trip!
and since odin is now a weighty twenty pounds we decide to finally try traveling with the car seat facing forward ( for those that haven’t thought about car seats in a long time, if ever, odin graduated from a group 0 to a group 1 seat ) so we can see each other much more easily during the 8 hour trip to the u.p..
of course, we had a chance to try out the biggest benefit of the new car seat position ( especially with a malamute hogging half of the back seat ) – being able to sooth a hungry tummy without stopping the car!
it might not be safest option in the world, but when you’re driving down the highway, miles and miles from any proper rest area, sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.
i still had my seatbelt on. honest 🙂
