Goin' On A Road Trip

Now, mind you, this will be NOTHING like the road trip we took last year about this time. We're loading up our new van (that Todd has spent the entire day cleaning with a toothbrush) and taking our two little munchkins to Colorado to spend some time with Adam, Angie & Tyson.

I am anxious for Connor to have a playmate his age (not that the dog and other cousins are enough). Tyson and Connor are just a few months apart and they talk to each other on the phone, so I hope he understands who it is that he is seeing once we get there. I have had my concerns about Connor's playing habits recently (I'll post the story on his blog).

Abi needs to be around kids that walk. This carrying thing is getting old. She'll be one on Wednesday, so it's not like she HAS to be walking, but it would be fantastic if she could get around without scuffing up her cute pants on the floor. The sound of them scraping on the pavement is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me!

Todd will use some of the time to do "schoolwork" ha ha ha. When he and Adam get together it is a 24 hour jab-fest. I guess he'll squeeze in an interview somewhere in there. It's okay though, Todd accomplished so much while he was in Hawaii, he deserves a little break.

I am packing up the most recent Harry Potter book and plan on reading it while we drive. I do not plan on drinking any beverages, unless I get absolutely thirsty. At this point, I am having to wake up a couple of times in the night to use the restroom. Our kids aren't potty trained, so I won't be able to blame them for all of the pit stops we will most likely be making.

Todd and Connor went to Wal-Mart the other day and picked up a dual-screen portable DVD player, so that will make the drive bearable for my favorite kids...they could watch movies all day, if I would let them.

So, when we return, I hope to have pictures (finally!) and other great adventures to tell you about!

Good luck, Mel! I never formally welcomed you back to Utah!! I'm glad you guys are going well. I'm finally back online after a few weeks in the "dark" so yay! Have a great time in Colorado. :)

Have fun in Colorado. Tell Adam I said hello. I don't think I have seen him since we graduated. Don't forget about our walk when you get back!!! :)

First of all...who are Angie and Adam?

What's up with the toothbrush cleaning thing?

Good job to Todd getting lots accomplished while he was here!

Portable DVD player- GREAT idea

Happy Bday to Abi on Wed!

You will LOVE having the DVD player. It helps out so much. Have a fun trip. I can't believe your are due in about 6 weeks. Exciting!!
