599.9 Miles Wih A Toddler In The Backseat

Ian and I have just returned from our outing to visit my parents aka "Mumzy & Gramps." Since Ian now refuses to sleep in the car the drive was a bit interesting. With the help of 4 kids CD's, a bag full of toys, Starbucks and strategic bottle or two we made the 3 1/2 hour trip in just 4 hours! It was actually a bit faster than when Shea goes with us! I do however either need a smaller car or a longer arm so that I can pass toys back to Ian after he throws them on the floor or tires of them.

We had a great time! We visited Lainie and Mandy's new house where Lainie took Ian on a tour of the backyard in her Barbie Jeep. He didn't want to get out!

Cousin Kylie went for a drive too although we all think she might have outgrown it just a bit!
The highlight of our trip was the new addition that Ian and I got to witness! Taylor's FFA project pig Miss Piggy had 5 little pigs right before we left town! Ian loved seeing the pigs although he still insists that they "moo" no matter how we try to convince him otherwise. Kylie (who got to skip 1/2 day of school for the new arrivals) took him on a tour of the school's farm.

After watching their arrival, packing up the car, and stopping by Mumzy's office on our way out of town Ian was well past his nap time. Turned out to be a good thing for me though! He slept the first half of the trip and was fairly easy to entertain the last half.

It was great seeing family when we didn't have holiday plans, family events, or a tight schedule to stick to! We'll have to make a trip for no reason again soon...if only I can figure out to lengthen my arm.

I need those longer arms too! When I hear "uh oh", it's usually trouble.
