I had stocked up on plenty of snacks and water for in the car. The kids brought books to read, games to play, and the good ole trusty portable dvd player we used while traveling in the states.
All the kids did very well on the trip. Caleb was very anxious to be out of the van before the trip was done, but he made it...just had to pull a few more tricks out of my hat to keep him entertained.
We arrived at our destination of Kaunas, Lithuania, with just enough time to check into our hotel room before dinner. The hotel rooms are VERY small - a bed, bathroom, and enough room to walk around the bed. We reserved a room with a kids' room attached. Notice two beds and four kids. The people at the front desk wanted to know if we wanted ANOTHER room, to which we replied NO. We requested a couple more blankets and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep.
After getting our things to our room, we headed back down to the lobby to meet up with everyone for dinner. A group with Couriers for Christ were in Lithuania for a evangelism outreach. We also had the privilege of meeting a couple missionary families that serve in Lithuania. What a joy to see the Bro. and Mrs. Stertz after SO many years.
The restaurant where we ate the first evening.
How exciting....a park right next to the restaurant. The kids were able to play and get some energy out after a long day in the van.
