2. Ringo being good in the car, mostly. He had trouble when we got too close to cars going in the opposite direction, wanted to herd and yell at them, and by the time we got to the hotel the first day after 10 hours in the car, he was ready to lose his mind he wanted to run and go crazy so bad, but other than that, he did so good.
3. An awesome backyard at Eric’s parents’ house where the dogs can run and play. After two days in the car, they needed it so bad.
5. Feeling like we are on vacation. Oh boy, did I ever need this.
Bonus Joy: Not having to get back in the car right away, but knowing that tomorrow we will be at the beach.
