And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

Driving and Driving and Driving

Well we made it.....we left Maryland yesterday around 2:00 p.m. and arrived in Cadillac, Michigan a few hours ago. We spent the night in Cleveland last night to break up the was still a long drive.

Ben was a super trooper. We cheated a bit and put him in the forward facing carseat for the road trip. He slept, he ate cheerios, he played with toys, he fussed, he watched Baby Mozart. We got two tips from people before we left included the temporary loaning of a portable DVD player, the other included advice of half a benadryl. No drugs. DVD player was life saving. Baby Mozart and Elmo and Friends provided hours of entertainment for baby and parents alike. New toys gifted from a sweet boy at church also made the trip much easier. Nothing like new toys to play with!

We're looking forward to a couple of wonderful, relaxing days in Michigan. More updates to come as the week goes on. For now....we are here, enjoying the cool weather, dry air and family reunions.
