We are finally here in our new home here on the west coast(I'll take you on a little tour soon but we have been busy folk!!).
Every box unpacked, things we don't need have been given and donated(this house is much smaller than the last) Laundry finished for five minuets, fridge filled, first home cooked meal made and enjoyed!
It was a long trip, it had wonderful bits and horrible bits, it could have been much worse. Thankfully we prepared as much as we could, my sister Michelle made little surprise bags for Bear that made a huge difference in our mornings(thank you Auntie Chelle), ice cream , frappes, and junk-food should be indulged in (within reason, keep away from greasy food, take it from a woman who cleaned vomit out of car upholstery, never again will we eat whataburger...uuugghhh),mostly I recommend you DON'T EVER DO THIS DRIVE WITH TWO KIDS UNDER 5 UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO!! That being said, we did have to because of the dog, so i'll choose to remember the lovely bits and forget the fact that the car stunk of dog and sick the whole last day of driving.
so here it is...
OUR TRIP WEST!
from beginning to end
(I get to be the HORRID woman with the travel picts and captions!)
|"Buffalo drink ninny milk, just like Addie!!"|
|*sings* I've nursed every-where man, I've nursed everywhere!!|
|Keeping his puppy company on one of our stops|
|the whole drive I envied all the people I saw on bikes, stretching their limbs and such (not the 100* + weather though)|
|John Mayer makes the best roadtrip music|
|Lou-Lou thought she could get us there faster than Daddy... if only she could reach the peddles!|
|We didn't make it very far this day as a little boy woke soon after this with a whimper and a LARGE amount of sick all over everything (EWW)|
|the day after he got sick (he decided we would be finished that day, because we were all done driving!)|
|our cute little inn(the rooms are HUGE)|
|Addie-Lou's first time in the grass(she couldn't in GA with all the red ants)|
|A nap in the sun|
It's good to be home.
