Our Dodge 'Journey'

Several weeks ago Dodge started a promotional campaign for their 2012 Journey.  They put out internet clues and planted 3 red Journeys in the US. The east coast journey took place this past weekend and we (all 5 of us) took the trip!

We took a 10 hour trek towards Albany and into Vermont on Friday, stopping along the way for food and bathrooms... We stayed in Lake George, NY for the night and started out fresh in the morning. Checked into another hotel on Sat night in Middlebury VT (nice town...).

I have to say I am disappointed in Dodge for changing the contest halfway thru. They didn't stay true to the contest format that most people were counting on.  We never had a chance. In fact no one had a chance until at least noon on Sunday... and it ended up in Maine @ Mosquito Harbor (anyone who knows my hubby knows we are NOT going any where near a place with that name :) )

But at the very least we were able to spend 60+ hours of quality family time together... really 60 hours!

I have to hand it to the kids... they are troopers! They got up this morning and were both in school on time! One in time to film the morning announcements and the other ready for picture day! 

anyway... it was a weekend to remember. Not sure if driving to VT in one day is a smart idea... but it's something we will be talking about for a long time!

You are right, the kids will remember this always. Good family memory! Love the collage photos.
