Has a great ring to it, huh?!
It was actually really nice. It was a 9 hour drive with 3 kids and 2 dogs. And they were all amazing! We didn't even have a DVD player in the car! Just good old fashioned, coloring, reading, toys and special blankets! Plus there's a huge difference between driving 9 hours from North Carolina through mountains and town and cities, and over rivers and beautiful countryside....and driving through Kansas for 9 hours. Need I say more?
We spent a week in Cincinnati with Eric's dad. I got to see my bestest friend, Michele McGuire, for a couple of days and meet her new boyfriend...who is the best one she's ever had. I hadn't seen Michele in over a year so it was wonderful to see her. We also saw some of Eric's friends and their kids, and that was great too. We spent a lot of time...obviously...with Eric's dad. We also spent Thanksgiving with Eric's 2 grandmothers, one who is 89 and one who is 97! And one of his aunts.
We went to the amazing Children's Museum and to the zoo lights. We ate a lot of really good food...but somehow didn't gain 15 lbs!
