We arrived safely home from our short trip out of town. The flight to our destination was pretty uneventful (lots of "Awesome!" and "Cool!" from the boys during take-off and landing). The flight back home today was a little more difficult, with Dylan and Lauryn both crying periodically for the hour we were in the air. Did I mention our flight happened during nap time? The kids had a fun time visiting a new city, but it was also a long weekend of not sleeping in their own beds, eating out for every meal, and generally being annoyed with each other in the hotel room and mid-size car we rented. Our mini-van might not be stylish, but it's wonderful at creating some distance between the kids! Much less "Stop looking at me!", and "He's touching me!" when they are spread out over two seats in the van instead of crammed in the back of a sedan. Also much less kicking of the back of Daddy's seat, which makes the ride more tolerable for everyone!
I'm glad to be home BUT.....me and the kids leave tomorrow to embark on a 6 hour drive to Oklahoma to visit family! So after one night in our own beds, we'll be off yet again. It's not that I'm a glutton for punishment. Ryan is on his Spring Break from preschool, so it seems a very good time to take a mid-week trip. Plus, the kids and I have been missing the grandparents and great-grandparents and a visit is overdue.
While I was at work this afternoon, my dear, delightful husband washed the laundry from our trip this weekend, so I am off to pack (re-pack). We'll be back in Dallas on Friday!
I was going to ask about the laundry from the trip and going on another trip so soon! How nice of your husband!
Can relate to the kids in the car. Have they said, "He's breathing my air!" yet?
1. Way to go little pastor with the laurndry...You rock dude!!!
2. Hearing your stories with the kids is always refreshing...Our kids are a little bit older, so when you mention the mini van thing, I can see the picture VERY VERY CLEARLY....
