Home Again...

We got in at around 2:00am this morning. We had a wonderful trip. Thank you to all of you that prayed. (Thanks Denise! ~ I think you might be my only reader left.) It took us longer than I expected to get out there and back -driving. But the kids did remarkably well. We went prepared with pillows, blankies, snacks, a cooler full of food and drinks, books, doodle pads, toys and a DVD player.

The kids kept them selves well entertained. Trey only asked twice on the way out there and once on the way back, if we were there yet. I think that's pretty good for a three year old and an almost two year old. Trey and I even balled up a plastic bag and threw it back and forth from the front and back seat. We enjoyed the rolling landscape of fields and farms along the way. Hugh and I saw lots of turkeys and deer, and the kids enjoyed the horses and cows. We even invented a cute little game called "My Cow!" It all started when the kids were waking from a little nap, and Anna Grace asked, "Where are my cows?" Trey retorted with a "My Cows!" That went on between them back a forth a few times, before Hugh and I stepped in and decided that all cows on Trey's side of the car are his and all cows on Anna Grace's side of the car are hers. From then on, they would point out their cows and we would talk about what color they were. It was fun.

It took us two days to get out there, and two days to get back. And we had four wonderful days with our family. I wish Janna and I could have gotten together, but I couldn't seem to find a free minute. It was so nice to see Trey and Anna Grace play with and get to know their family, especially their cousins. Trey even cried the morning we left, because he didn't want to leave. He said he was having fun. -So Precious!

I have so much to share, but for now, I must go and unpack and do a little laundry. We'll catch up later. Blessings!
