In case you have heretofore somehow missed my mention of it, the Mister works a lot. Long and gruesome hours at a job we are so thankful he has. Getting away from the city is hard to do. So, our trip to Williamsburg for niecey's Baptism was quite the family getaway.
We rarely do a long drive with the boys (26 flights and counting for Little Guy, but hardly ever a long drive...weird!), so we were a little nervous about the stress level, fuss level, poopy diaper level, etc. About an hour and a half into the drive, when things were headed downhill fast, the Mister made an "executive decision" (his term, which kindly informs me that my input will not be needed in a certain matter) to plug Target into the GPS, pull off at the next exit, and buy a portable DVD player and Barney's Circus Songs or some such. And peace reigned from there on out.
What road trip isn't made by better by a stop at Sonic? Mmmmm....I love cheesesticks and every toddler loves a waitress on roller skates.
A little out of order, but I have to throw this in there. I love this picture of Little Guy seeing his grandparents for the first time. It makes me feel so good about all those long visits we make down south, when we're missing the Mister like crazy. The boy knows his grandparents. And loves them!
And lots and lots of fresh air and space to roam!
