To Nana and Granddaddys house we go
I had these grand ideas of what maternity leave would be like, with all that time off work we could travel, go on a relaxing vacation to some tropical location or maybe a long weekend in the mountains. Well that didn’t happen, between my slow recovery, my husbands crazy busy end of year at work and TWO infants to take care of, we didn’t really even leave the house, let alone the state, for the first two months. But over the New Years weekend, with careful planning and a week of organizing and packing, we hopped in our mini van and headed to North Carolina to visit my parents and show off our new special people to all our family and friends in my hometown.
The typical 5 1/2 hour drive took 7 1/2 which was making good time and the girls did amazing in the car, they slept most of the time and I sat in the back with them and read books while they were awake. Here’s Talia with her “are we there yet?” look.
It was a lot of fun being at Nana and Grandaddy’s house. Since there were none of those regular house hold chores to worry about like we would if we were at our own home we were able to relax and just enjoy our time with Nana and Grandaddy and aunt Mindy an soon to be uncle Bryan!
Nana and Grandaddy also threw a party for the girls so all their friends could meet their newest grand babies. This was the girls first party and they loved it, they slept through the whole thing!
The trip back took a little longer but we had a great time and hope to spend many more weekends in North Carolina in the years to come.
