My good friend has graciously opened her house for us tonight and I have a moment to update you all on our progress. Let me just say that it's the biggest help for the kids to be able to get out of the car today and run around in a house with other kids and new toys. Amazing!
Anyway, last night we got into Ohio late and the kids slept amazingly well. Although Butterfly kept hushing the boys as they cried. She wanted it to be quiet! Professor woke up at 4:30 or 5am to eat and went back to bed around 7am. The hotel was nice...a big room with a fold out bed for Butterfly. The boys shared the pack and play and they are not going to be able to do that much longer.
We had a really nice breakfast with my cousin and his family who live in Ohio. I had never met their girls (one is about the same age as Butterfly) and we were on the road by 10am.
Then we drove. And drove. And stopped. Several times. Butterfly kept having to go to the bathroom about every 20 minutes. I think because she wanted to get out of the car. We were about an hour later coming into St. Louis than I wanted but we made it here. The boys screaming the last hour or so. We didn't stop because we were close and I knew they would be happier running around the house.
They were. It's been fun to be here. We're off tomorrow for some sight seeing and a little bit of an easier day. I'd like to take Butterfly swimming at the hotel. I'd like to take all the kids swimming if I can convince my dad to go with us. I think we would all benefit from a small break from the car.
