Two weekends ago we went to visit Hubby's grandma, C's Mema. We had so much fun! We left around 4:00am hoping that C and I would sleep most of the way and wouldn't have to stop as often. Well, I walked into C's room and he was sitting up in his crib waiting for me! He was wide awake! He did doze off and on in the car, but not more than an hour the whole 4.5 hour trip!
This is actually from another trip...but you get the idea!
We arrived at Memas and she had a big country breakfast ready for us! Yummy! After breakfast C dragged us outside. It was HOT! He had a great time showing off his ball skills.
Next, against much complaining, we headed inside to rest. Hubby, Mema, and I all fell asleep...not C! I got him to lay down in front of the TV and "rest" but he did not fall asleep. After nap time, we bowled a little while Mema got a huge lunch together. C is in the middle of an eating strike, so we were pleasantly surprised when he chowed down on some roast beef, mashed potatoes, and corn. Then, he talked us into going outside again!
C got to meet a couple new animal friends as well! Hubby's sister keeps a horse at Memas. He had fun seeing the "dog" from the window. Mema also has a cat that he had a great time "playing" with! He also meet Annie, a dog of one of Hubby's aunts. We told C that this is Annie, and to be careful because she's smaller than he's used to. Every time someone would tell C that the dogs name was Annie, he would get down on her level and say "I C, I C" introducing himself...so cute!
Remember the nap C didn't take? Well, we put him in his chair for dinner so he could eat because he was fading quick around 6:00. This is what happened while we were cutting his food for him. Needless to say, he slept well that night!
Then we left on Sunday. A very quick trip, but lots of fun! And we hardly ever see C get that tired :)
