We headed out on our trip Friday morning. I will admit I was expecting a stressful drive. 6 hours of two yelling kids and just me. But that was NOT the case... They were great!! Best drive we've ever taken. Of course there were LOTS of "are we there yets" and "how much longers" but all in all... Fantastic!
The kids cheered when we made it to the FL line.... however were disappointed when I told them about 3 1/2 more hours! I did a little cheer when we made it to Orlando... almost there!!
WE MADE IT!!!
First things first... give baby Hayden lots of lovin'!!
Uncle Mo and Aunt Lou-Lou meeting him for the first time. (for all of you asking WHY my parents are called those names, let me explain.....) My mom has a little brother named Steve, so my dad goes by his nickname 'Mo' which is short for his first name, Morris. My mom was always Aunt Janet until my cousin, Lacey, started calling her Lou-Lou out of the blue... and if you know my mom she LOVES nicknames. Needless to say it stuck!
Jack loves him some babies. He held Hayden many times over the weekend. (p.s. Hayden's shirt says "Were you this cute?") Jack asked me during church when we were going to get a baby...but he had conditions... It can ONLY be a baby brother! He says he can only handle one sister!! :)
Hailey on the other hand patted his head, kissed him and said, "where's the games?!" She played Wii every second she got. We eventually moved the console into the back bedroom so other people could enjoy the family room :) My sweet little electronic-obsessed child! We've started limiting the time at home... I think she'd do it all day if I let her.
Part 2 up next... Gotta go get ready for lunch with Sarah, Ralston, and Riley!!
