on thursday we headed out for a long, quick trip to our soon-to-be home state of ohio to look at schools for the girls. this was at 8:37a, shortly after heading out. it became a joke to andy and i for the rest of the trip. when someone was crying, whiney or just irritated with being stuck in the car, i began chanting 8:37. the time when everyone was happy and even carson was chatting to his reflection in the mirror unaware of what he had gotten himself into.
there were many books read and many a doll dressed along the way. i spent the majority of the trip in the middle row keeping everyone entertained. andy will tell you the trip wasn't that bad and i'll tell you he can say that as he was in the front by himself.
one boy that's oh so happy to be out of his carseat. stopped to eat somewhere in indiana or ohio. let's just say traveling across indiana shouldn't be on the top of anyone's must see lists in life.
oh chik fil a, it's been way too long. a stop for lunch after our first school visit. at 11a. which means it was only 10a our time. so very good. mcdonald's is getting kicked to the curb after we move. i also had andy drive thru on saturday morning as we headed out of town so i could get a chicken biscuit for breakfast.
a bit of driving around after seeing our last school of the day. that building in the background? andy's new hospital. oooh la la.
the best perk of our trip to cleveland? getting to spend time with our friends the larsons. all of our kiddos are just a few weeks or months apart. ironically they're moving back to wisconsin at the end of the month.
angry eyes from the back seat after i told her it was nap time as we headed home. it should be noted she was asleep in less than three minutes after this loving interaction.
so nice to be back home and getting things back to our normal routine. after thanksgiving and then a road trip, we all need a bit of normalcy before the next holiday.
