A Trip!

What's been happening around here...we had a great last weekend. Mike and I had a much needed date afternoon/night at the golf course, then we spend Saturday at the lake. Sunday we finally celebrated little Maegann's 21 birthday (she may be getting older, but she'll always be Lil Maeg).

Then came this week, nothing out of the ordinary until- A SPUR OF THE MOMENT TRIP was planned! My Mom and I are driving to New Mexico to visit my grandma (who I call Blano). We are leaving Sunday and will be back Friday. Mike and I have been trying to make this trip happen for about a year, but he can't take the time off work to come too. On top of this trip, I am going on my annual trip with my best friends to Seattle in only a couple of weeks. AND, Mike is trying to plan a trip to take Maegann to visit Michael in New York. That's why he works all the time, to make this happen for us. Just wish one of our trips was us together :(

So, in three days we set off on a 14ish hour trip with two three year olds. That's with no stops. I got on Pinterest this morning and started looking at ideas for road trips with toddlers. There were lots of good ones. Like making felt boards and I SPY books. But honestly? I'm pretty sure I'm banking 90% of our success on the DVD player and the 20 movies I'm going to rent from the library.

Last night we watched fireworks at the beach. I stole Maeg's pictures of Facebook.

And...I've been a little blue. And I hate it. And I don't want to talk about it. Just send a happy prayer my way. I believe they work.
