Friday morning I left with the boys and headed up to Star Valley, Wyoming. My mom recently had double knee replacement surgery and she needed a little help while she recovered. So we left Honey Daddy at home, and the boys and I hit the road.
The drive took about 4 hours, and the boys did surprisingly well. Especially since I couldn't pay that much attention to them. One of my friends loaned me a DVD player, which Jonah absolutely loved. I loved it too because at least it kept one of my boys occupied (ie. not whining). Eli was a bit more bored and impatient with the whole trip, but what can you expect from a one year old?
Luckily the boys did a little of this during the drive too:
Wyoming was great! The boys loved hanging out with Grandpa and Grandma, and I kept pretty busy. I cooked meals, vacuumed, cleaned, did laundry, and tried to keep my boys out of trouble. My mom is doing amazingly well, and I am really proud of her. I also hope I never need to have my knees replaced because it is no fun at all!
The worst part of this afternoon was getting ready to leave. I had to pack up the car, which is a job Honey Daddy usually takes care of. He is much better at fitting everything back into the car!
The boys and I survived the drive home, although we did have to stop once on the side of the road for an emergency potty break. At least it is not too much of a problem with boys!
I don't plan on doing a solo road trip with the boys for a while! I really missed having adult companionship in the car... not to mention another pair of hands. It is great to be home! I took lots of great pics in Wyoming, and I'll post those a bit later after I've had time to unpack, etc.
(Speaking of home, how do you like my new blog look? Cute, huh? - Thanks sis!)
