Last week Emmy took for her very first road trip! I have to say that I was extremely nervous to embark on a 7 hour road trip with a 1 month old and a dog. I have done that drive so many times (I probably could do it with my eyes closed) but adding a baby was going to be a true test. A few people thought I was crazy for attempting this trip.
Come to find out I had nothing to worry about, she did amazing!! She slept for the first 4 hours, woke up to eat and be changed, and then slept for the remaining 3 hours. Just like me though she was happy to get to my sisters and be out of the car.
We enjoyed 3 1/2 great days with my family, relaxing, and enjoying the beautiful Florida weather. She loved being snuggled and loved on by everyone, including my sisters 2 dogs.
One of the highlights of the trip was picking up her Halloween costume! We will all be matching with our costumes, it's going to be so much fun. We won't be taking her actual trick or treating (she is still too little for that) but we will be sitting in our driveway passing out candy.
I'm definitely glad I made the decision to go down to visit for a few days, you can never go wrong with family time. We will be headed back there Veterans Day weekend to run a half marathon with my sister and then again for New Years to celebrate a belated Christmas. I'm so glad that we are close enough to my family that we can visit on a somewhat regular basis, the Army doesn't always make that easy.
Enjoy your day!
