We'll be staying right here in Rhode Island for the holidays. Christmas Eve we will travel by car about 45 minutes each way to my father's family party. Christmas Day we will be traveling about the same distance to my future sister-in-law's family for dinner. We'll probably take a 20-minute foray over to Newport at some point to visit my mother.
My mother-in-law is sulking because we will not be going up to New Hampshire to spend the holiday with them. But I am not about to spend 4 1/2 hours each way in the car with a fidgety 2 yr-old and a three week-old who hates to be put down for more than two minutes, so she'll just have to get over it! Besides, we haven't figured out yet how to fit two adults, two children in car seats, and everything in our house into our Acura.
