Day 6 of the Great Adventure: Redding to Seattle

We knew this day was going to be long, but we didn't realize it was going to start out with such excitement!  We started out early and got going.  About an hour into the drive, Robby started screaming.  I knew what that scream meant.  I tried to calm him down in hopes of stopping what was about to happen but it didn't work.  He threw up.  Everywhere.  In the middle of no where.  In the mountains.  We drove a few miles and came upon a tiny gas station where were could clean him and the car.

This is my "oh my gosh, throw up everywhere" face, I guess!
 That box on the back of the car came in quite handy for this!
 A pretty photo op came of the situation, though.
 The mountains of northern California were beautiful!

 Please ignore my reflection in the window and look at the beautiful trees and the lake.  Don't you just love iphone pictures taken on a whim?!

 Robby loved this bridge!  But then we got stuck in traffic.  Major traffic after being on the road for 10 hours.  It wasn't fun but we kept telling ourselves we were almost there!  Charlie hadn't taken an afternoon nap for some reason so he was quite delirious!
 He fell asleep pretty fast after we started going again!

 Pretzels and ipad!  He's set!

We made it to Willy and Darlene's house after 11.5 hours on the road.  We are hoping this is our longest day of the trip!
