Once we got EVERYTHING packed and loaded into the car we were ready to begin our adventure. So we entered onto the interstate and quickly hit a wall of traffic. Thankfully we were right next to the last exit and we were able to get off. We went to Wal-Mart to kill some time. We looked up on our phones and found out there had been an accident. So we walked around Wal-Mart for 45 minutes and the roads were still not open.
We were starving! We were planning on eating at our favorite sub shop Silver Mine Subs, since we don’t have one here in town. We knew we were not going to make, so we went to Qdoba and ate there. After we finished eating we went home. I scooped the snow and Michael took a nap. Almost four hours after we first tried to leave we were finally able to hit the road.
There was far more traffic than usual on the roads but we have waited a little while to let traffic even out. We were about five miles outside of Fort Collins when we passed a sign that let us know that there was an accident 11 miles ahead. Not again! So we exited and walked around American Furniture Warehouse for about half an hour. After the accident cleared when hit the road a second time.
We were getting close to the hotel when it happened. Mr. Benjamin got tired of being in the car seat, was hungry, and just over all grumpy…and he was starting to let us know about. I cannot blame him both of us were hungry and pretty grumpy by this point too. We were about 15 minutes away. We felt so bad but we were just too close to stop. He was upset but not seriously mad so we just kept going.
FINALLY we arrived at the hotel. We checked in, got our room keys, and went to the car to unload. Michael and I loaded up everything onto a cart. I told him to just park the car and that I would take everything up. One of the desk staff was nice enough to help me out by pushing the cart up so I could just carry Ben. We got up to the room and felt relieved at finally getting there.
