Today Anne and I head back home to Washington. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I am excited because it will be nice to be in my own bed, have my lovely home, and all of Anne’s toys to play with. Not to mention our wonderful neighbors to hand out with. I am nervous because we will be very alone and that is never easy. Luckily my in-laws are coming for a visit in a couple week and after that my bestie will be visiting from Idaho so we can take our kiddos to ride Thomas the Train in the middle of July. Fun times!
So we will be in the car for 13.5 hours today – I know, you’re jealous. 13.5 hours in a car with a toddler, I would be jealous too…NOT! I will spend the next 13.5 hours doing my best to keep the meltdowns to a minimum – I think there will be lots of singing, coloring and possibly even angry birds in our future!
So now, let’s make sure at least one person has a great day! The winner of the layer cake of Quilt Blocks from Fat Quarter Shop is….
Carin! Who said “I like the Gumdrop Pattern”
Carin, I will email you on Saturday, as I will be traveling all day today.
Have a wonderful Friday everyone and a relaxing weekend!
Good luck with the trip! I recently spent about 45 mins in a car with a friend and her toddler. It was challenging!
Congrats Carin! Melissa, I hope you have a safe trip.
Congratulations to Carin and I hope you have a safe trip. Lots of rest stops for little legs to get out and burn energy can help a little.
Congratulations Carin!! Hope your trip is safe and as meltdown free as possible! Cannot wait for Thomas! 🙂
Praying for you to have safety and a smooth trip….maybe Anne will nap some!!
I thought my day was bad – 7 hours in the car alone, but I remember traveling across the entire country with a toddler when my husband was in Vietnam, and it had some really great moments! And not so great ones, too. Where was angry birds then? LOL I hope you are home safely now and enjoying that bed.
And I don’t care what anybody says, its okay to cry. =)
Congrats to Carin 🙂
Melissa,I feel your pain girl,as I remember the days of road trips with toddlers! Hope you and Anne made it home in record time with minimal meltdowns,for both of you 🙂
Vacations are nice,but it is also nice to be back home.
