So earlier I posted that we were taking a Road Trip! We got in town after 9pm that Friday night because of the Labor Day Traffic, so our friend’s daughter was already in bed. Here’s a picture of the little guy & her the next morning after they saw each other for the first time … Evan was obviously a bit more excited than she was!!!
The drive to Charlotte was just a straight shot, nice & easy. And it would have been very uneventful had we not heard the little words “peepee mommy” as we were passing through little unfamiliar towns! Pep got the great idea to let him pee in a cup … why I listened to him I have no idea!!!! I’m usually more adament about something like that, but maybe it was because the little guy had to go so bad he started crying & we weren’t seeing any signs for the next exit, so I gave in. I was trying to keep safety in mind & didn’t want to unbuckle him, but let me just tell you, it was like filling a cup from the water fountain!!! The more peepee that went in the cup, the more that came out!!! Needless to say, we finally came to a great exit about 2 miles after the “water fountain” incident where we spent more time than we would have in the first place b/c we had peepee all over his seat!!!!
Our friends were great hosts & we had a lot of fun just hanging out. We went to a great park with water fountains & sprays for the kids, we had some great local food at Cabo Fish Taco along with some home-smoked ribs that were very yummy!!
The ride back was far less uneventful than the ride up … which was perfect!
I’m headed off with Pep & the little guy for a little Labor Day road trip to Charlotte NC. It wouldn’t necessarily be the first place we’d choose for a vacation, but we’re really excited about going … 1- I’ve never been to Charlotte, NC (I don’t think) but 2 – we’re going to see some good friends!! They’ve lived in Charlotte for about 2 years now & we’ve never made the trip to see them, so it’s finally time! They also have a little girl that is about 1-1/2 so that will be fun to see the kiddos together.
I’ve stocked the DVD player with Bob Marley, Santana, Curious George & of course Stevie Ray Vaughn so the little guy should be content on the road!!
