This weekend we took off for South Florida to visit some of Cindy’s family. Although we had originally planned on leaving early Thursday morning, we considered ourselves very fortunate to be backing out of the driveway at 11 a.m. Wednesday night was a
nightmare challenge because Adam was being a butt teething, and we didn’t get much packing done. Anyway, the trip went pretty well, and although the boys had their moments, the 10-hour drive ended without incident.
The boys had a great time, and just loved all the attention they were getting. First, they met their “Poppy” (Cindy’s stepdad) who met us at the hotel with a couple Coronas in hand. I guess he knew after a long day traveling with a couple of 6-month-olds, mom and dad could use a beer!
Next they met their Nanny Vera (Cindy’s mom). As you can see they just seemed to hang on every word…
They also got to meet their Auntie GiGi (left), who was much like a second mom to them, and their Uncle Bob. GiGi and Bob made a four-hour drive to be here, and we enjoyed a great Fourth of July barbeque with Bob’s brother Dave! Finally, their Auntie Sharon (right), who is very beautiful, and not at all prissy, came to visit. She was out-of-town when we first arrived, and stopped by the hotel on her way home. Unfortunately, she arrived at dinnertime 😉
All-in-all it was a great trip. The only drawback were the nights in the hotel. After a full day out-and-about, the boys were wired, and it took a while for them to calm down enough to fall off to sleep. This made the evenings a
pain in the ass little trying, but once they fell asleep, they were out for the night. Tomorrow morning, we’ll be up early (hopefully) and heading home.
