I knew it was not going to be great. This is how our morning looked:
And then this is how our afternoon looked:
And we STILL had a drive from Indy to Gramma’s ahead of us. And then we hit traffic. And then we hit traffic again. And again. And … well, you get the idea.
Oh, and another milestone has been reached. Paige has now entered the “Are we there yet?” phase. Awesome.
Eventually (5 hours later) we made it there. No one slept in the car. Lots of people cried. And I think I climbed from the front seat to the back seat about 300 times.
And it’s already been worth the trip. Great Grandpa Joe is here from California, meeting Blair for the first time and seeing an almost-preschooler Paige for the first time since she was about 6 months old. Aunt Tricia and Uncle Brian are here. And, obviously, Gramma and “Jim-pa” are here. It’s going to be a fun weekend, as this morning’s activities prove:
Now, if only the girls would sleep past 5:15 … I’m sure I’ll be posting lots, since I’ll obviously be sleeping little.
**Quick update – this picture was taken at about 8:24 am. At 8:28 am Paige dumped Blair out of her chair and pushed it on top of her, Mommy took both chairs away, Paige threw a HUGE tantrum, and Blair went back to bed.
