Road Trip

We got home late last night from a weekend with friends in Batavia, NY [close to Buffalo]. The drive was about 6 hours. A long ride by our standards [even before Max!].

Here's what I now LOVE about a road trip [so not kidding at all!]:

1. Listening to Baby Einstein classical CD's...over and over and over again.

2. Also listening to Andrea Bocelli [another classical tune!] on repeat until Max falls asleep.

3. Taking turns to use the restroom at a rest stop while Max sleeps in the back seat.

4. Having a crick in my neck from turning around every 10 seconds to see what Max is up to in his car seat.

5. Feeding Max his bottle, in a gas station, while daddy pumps gas.  And then urging him to "please burp!" so we can get back on the road.

6. Sam using Max as an excuse for speeding because "Max just wants to get home!"
