After giggling and relaxing for the day after surgery, we got to take a family road trip to visit my home town!
I grew up near Madison, WI and the 4 1/2 hour drive was a bit daunting with three and then the times we had planned to make a go of it, we ended up with sick kiddos or bad weather so none of my extended family had met the boys, including their cousins (my sister's kids) We hit the road at bedtime and they did pretty good, there were a couple of stretches with sad kiddos, but not too bad on the road. Transitioning from car seat to sleeping in the pack n plays at Grandma's was a bit more of a challenge. I do not have those kids that you can pull out of their car seats like rag dolls and drop them still sleeping into their cribs. It took about 2 1/2 hours to get them all sleeping in their pack n plays-Victor is the star and was in and slept through the night 1/2 hour after we got their, the other boys were pretty sure they were up for the day when we arrived and it took a long time to settle in and neither of them ended up in their beds, but instead one each and seperate beds with Marty and I.
