Once we arrived we were greeted with a great breakfast cooked by one of my most dear friends, Amy. We sat and chatted with Amy and her family for a bit and then Erik took a little nap. The rest of the trip was a bit of a whirlwind. We met friends at the zoo, for dinner, for lunch and I took the boys to visit the office.
We left Tuesday morning at 6:45am and arrived back home a little bit after 10pm. I have to say we have some amazing little road trippers. I wonder if that is in their blood since Erik and I love to travel! I sure hope so, just shy of their second birthday they have now been in 8 states. I know it may be a bit weird but this is something I plan on keeping track of.
I was so worried about trip back, since we were driving through the day. My friend Amy – having two children of her own and making long trips with them while they were young – knew that what we needed was a DVD player for the car. She is a “day after Thanksgiving” shopper and had a DVD player for the car with two screens, one for the back of each head rest. She would not let us give her any money for it and I think now I will be in her debt forever!! She also gave them the movie Spirit which Max asked us to play several times while we were on the road. Both were priceless. I’m really not sure how anyone travelled prior to car DVD players. When I was a kid we only took one long road trip and after that we were flying the clear blue skies everywhere.
Some of my most favorite people in this world reside in
. They are family. They took me in and made me part of theirs when my family was many miles away. San Antonio
It was a great trip. I was sad to leave and have to say that if our path ever takes us down that way, I would not be disappointed. Not one bit.
