We took our first road trip and visit home with the B man this last weekend! We figured this was the first trip and the next 5 months a trip is scheduled monthly and so B had no choice but to like it ;) He did GREAT! We were so proud of the 8 hours he put up with hanging out in his car seat. The way to Iowa it took us 10 hours and the way home 8.5 hours (we're not sure how we did such great time the way home). Meghan came with us so it was great that we always had someone sitting by him which I think helped a lot! We discovered traveling with a baby is kinda relaxing. When it was just Mike and I we tried to get to our destination as quick as we could. There was no stopping unless we ABSOLUTELY needed to. And now, we stop for meals and even eat in the restaurant! We walk around and even play! I kinda like this new road trip life :)
Anytime we stopped was some major play time for Brody. There were HUGE smiles anytime he was out of his car seat.
There was lots of family who haven't met B yet. They ate him up. By the end of the trip Mike and I were missing our boy because he was always with someone and not us. I selfishly loved that I had to hold him 4 times a day to nurse :) We started to place B in the middle of our table when we are eating at a restaurant. He loves it. Well he was only in the middle of this table for a very short while because there were very eager hands to snatch him up!
B loved meeting his grandma!
I couldn't wait for B to meet his great grandma and grandpa!
Brody has a fussy time between 8-9 pm every night! We were truly on vacation this hour because thankfully Grandpa missed his grandson so much he gladly took this shift :) He discovered B likes the piano and enjoyed playing it.
We had such a fun time showing off our boy! He definitely was a hit :) We are so proud of him how great he did during the whole trip. This puts our minds at ease a lot for the next few months of traveling. On the agenda is California in May, youth camp in June, family camp in July, and vacation to Colorado Springs in August!
