Quick Update from the Road

Hey all! I don't have much time to post, but I just wanted to let you all know how things are going thus far... We had a safe trip here to my sister's house in Ohio. We are staying with them for a few days before hitting the road again. Peyton did great in the car ride, but we were all VERY ready to be done.

We made a decision for Bryan to continue the road trip from here (Ohio) on Wednesday, and for me and Peyton to stay here a few days and then fly out to meet him on Friday. As much as we were looking forward to our road trip adventure, we realized that it wasn't fair to little Peyton. Riding in a car seat in the back of a packed car is hardly what I would consider fun! She can't enjoy the crossing of each new state line, getting cappucino at a gas station, taking crazy pictures all over the U.S., etc. She only sits there with her toys getting bored and sore!!!!

It will be nice to have a few days with my sister and her sweet baby. I'm sure many pictures will be coming your way in the next few days ;)

For now, we're headed out to go bowling with my sissy and her husband! Just wanted to let you all know we were safe... and what our plans our for the next leg of this LONG trip :) Much love to you all!

I think that is a great idea to take the plane...I was wondering how you were going to be able to handle such a long trip with Peyton!! Our trips seem to take soooooo much longer with Ava on board...
