Gas, Food, Lodging

How do you fit two adults, two large dogs and a baby in the same vehicle? Nevermind all their stuff. This is why I have that big gas guzzling SUV people always give me crap about.

Tomorrow we take Keegan on his first road trip. Now it won't be reminiscent of my college road trips (ie. loud music, speeding, junk food, trunk full of liquid courage). But we're going to PA to see Grammy, Pappy, Aunt BJ & Aunt Loretta, so there's plenty of fun to be had. I'm not really nervous about traveling with a baby just afraid he'll sleep the whole way and be up all night. Then what if his days get all messed up? That would be unfortunate. Particulary for me as I have gotten used to be able to sleep when the rest of this hemisphere does. Oh well, there is only one way to find out.

Have a lovely weekend and Easter (if you observe it). See ya when we return!
