My sister Dana & I are either really brave or down right crazy. Early yesterday morning we loaded up my expedition with three car seats, three portacribs, a double jogger stroller, a single stroller, diapers for three, luggage for five, and three very small little boys including two year old twin terrors ;-) and an infant and we left our husbands behind and drove up north of Dallas to visit our Aunt, Uncle, & Cousins.
The car ride went great and even though we had to make three stops we still made decent time up here. The plan today is to take the kids to the Aquarium and one of those indoor play places, tomorrow we are hoping to meet up with some friends for more fun, and then we'll probably pack up Wednesday morning for the return journey.
My first goal today is to purchase a new camera as it seems mine has gone missing. Since I keep it in the exterior pocket of my purse so I can get to it quickly when I need to, I have a sneaking suspicion a two year old probably pulled it out for inspection one day in the middle of Target and then launched it across the store when no one was looking.
I've searched everywhere for over a week and now I need to move on because I'm missing lots of photo ops with the kids. Of course, as soon as I get home with my new investment I'm certain the old camera will make a reappearance. Isn't that how it always goes? Well I probably took over 5,000 pictures with that camera over the last three years so at least I got my money's worth.
