The last time that we have all been together was back in September 2010.
My brother and sister in law hadn't even met Callie in person yet! So this vacation was much needed for all of us to get together and celebrate our parents, and new family members who have yet to make an entrance. (Both my sister in laws are pregnant!)
The drive up went SO much better than our trip back to Indiana, last January. Callie was far less fussy this time. Besides having two year old temper tantrums over wanting water and not juice, or "Wilson's foot is touching me." The drive was far far easier this time.
We stopped for the night both times, and that also helped out tremendously. I somehow got out of having to drive at all. (Muahah!)
I didn't pack very well though. Wilson barely had any clothes to change in and out of. I blame it on our fridge breaking the night before we left. We had to toss everything in our fridge out.
I wouldn't have minded just the fridge, but the freezer also broke, so I had to throw away stuff I wasn't planning on having to toss out.
Rawr. So I was a little side tracked, and forgot to pack Wilson more clothes.
Now that we are back, I've got the fun task of trying to restock everything.
We also had to try to leave the house as clean as possible, because once you get back, it's like a tornado hit. Our house seems so cluttered! The heat and humidity is zapping my energy, and I'm in the postpartum vacation blues.
So it's back to life in Florida for us. A lot of little things are coming up, like preschool for Wilson, Andy sewing on Staff Sergeant, and hopefully more beach days for the Kirks!
