If you're considered taking a road trip with a toddler and a 7 month pregannt woman, I'd advise you to avoid it. We did our best to coordinate sleeping/eating/discomfort schedules, but the drive north didn't go very smoothly. Even worse, once we arrived, Colin didn't want to sleep! I think Gavin and I got less than 5 hours of sleep total between the two of us and we were a bit worse for wear the next morning. Colin took a great nap, and by the evening, in time for the wedding, we were mostly functional.
Colin had a fantastic time at the wedding! Right after dinner he waddled out to the dance floor and started dancing! It was so adorable. I love watching that kid explore the world. I thought everyone laughting and pointing would scare him, but he seemed to love the attention. So sweet.
It was amazing for Colin to get to spend time to with extended family. We were especially excited to see Auntie Cheryl who came all the way from Texas and bravely roadtripped home with us!
The ride home was easier. We ditched the night time drive approach and broke up the drive a bit more. We are all happy to be home safe and sound.
Congratulations to the Newlyweds, Craig & Faith! May your marraige bring you as much love and comfort as ours has brought us!
