With 3 kids you learn that you MUST pack throughout the week. Why wait til the last minute? You will forget something anyway. Always happens. This time I forgot Austin's blanket. But, at least I remembered the kids - both real and stuffed (aka Tusker the Elephant, Roary the Lion, and Baby Fox)
Yep, that is my kitchen table covered in the stuff needed for this family when we travel. This does NOT include the parent suitcase, the baby's tote, the highchair (there were a LOT of people at Sarah's house this weekend...plus it breaks down pretty easy), the pack-n-play, AND two bikes with helmets.
I know. I KNOW!
Good thing we have the awesome minivan...
Thursday Morning (the day we leave for Georgia)
We headed out to the zoo. Because I'm insane like that. BUT! I have good reasons - the house was mostly clean, the kids were wild and asking every 5 minutes when it was time to go, and I didn't want these packed items messed with anymore!
|Ready to head out to the zoo!|
|Bird is the word...|
|Lunch at the library before dropping off books that were due / picking up our books for school|
Thursday Afternoon (pack 'em up and let's roll)
I love having an engineer in the house. He can solve any "Rubik's Cube" - especially the minivan version!
|Yes, everything packed - the bikes are in the right seat's spot (we took out that seat)|
|Working on the last of the baby afghans for this month|
|Happy to be at Nana's with the train tracks!|
|Just happy to be out of the car. Not a fan of being strapped down when he has places to go and things to get into...|
|These guys had an absolute blast and are already asking when we get to go again! So much fun!!|
|I mean, see? GORGEOUS!! Also this was my favorite part of the boating adventure! ;)|
|No Sunday is complete without football. Check out that arm!|
|The sweetest picture that I'm so happy I was able to get! This is Ma, the boys' great-grandmother, and she is reading the rest of the Magic Tree House book that we brought along. Love it!|
Monday - We head home!
|On our way home, we hit a few scattered showers. Check out that beam of sunshine.|
|Finally home! But everyone was wired...so Jason turned everyone into an obstacle course for Austin. He called it his version of Mount Midoriyama (Can you tell we are American Ninja Warrior fans??)|
