Drew & I were pumped. The look on Eleanor's face pretty much sums up her excitement over the 3 hour ride in the truck. It's no secret that she's not the best car rider and the trip to the lower Buffalo was no exception, but we made it.
Also, this is noteworthy. The toddler that doesn't sleep in the car... sleeping in the car! Somehow, the multiple extended trips in the truck seem to have broken her car riding difficulties. Knock on wood, we may have figured out a few tricks and crossed the line into more tolerable toddler travel.
Back to the river and by evening it finally stopped raining. Drew got the fire going to make dinner and Eleanor and I walked down to the river. She was happy to be on her own feet and exploring a bit.
Crying because Mommy won't carry her around now that she's soaked from the waist down.
Stay tuned for "Buffalo Point: Part 2", also known as "the part of our vacation without rain and truck troubles.
