In Which 2009 Already Surprises Me

We made it back from Wisconsin in only seven hours, this is unheard of when traveling with small children. It was the perfect anti-storm of sleeping children, cooperative bladders, light traffic, dry weather, and vacant construction zones.

Michael was excited to see his room, he got all smiley and wiggly when I carried him in there to change his diaper.

***

Harper said, "This was such a good day."

"Driving in the car all day?" I puzzled.

"Well we got home safely Mom!"

Good point.

Matt went to pick up the dog, the dog entered, Michael cried. Michael apparently forgot Rebound and/or is now afraid of him.

Wha?

7 hours is record time?! Whew... Thanks for reminding me not to complain about having to travel 3 hours to visit our family!

I'm glad to hear that you had a safe and uneventful trip home and that you enjoyed time with your family!

Here's to wishing you health and happiness for you and your family in 2009!

"the perfect anti-storm"

I love it! And I've been trying to visualize what an anti-storm looks like. A hurricane eye? A beach sunset? A calm river?

Whatever it is or isn't, glad your travels went well and you have Harper to point it out :) Here's to '09 being full of happy, wiggly kids!
