Show #29: Are We There Yet?

Hey everyone! Welcome to Show #29 of The Summerhill Gang. One of the most common things that parents hear on any road trip is "Are we there yet?" or "How much longer until we get there?" These questions usually pop up from the back of the vehicle after being on the road for 10-15 minutes. Jamie recently had experience with this and you can hear all about it in this show. Plus we have plenty of TV, new music from Lady Antebellum, movie reviews and our top 3 picks for movies released in 2007. Enjoy the fireworks...and...don't forget to turn out the lights!
