i’m only now just recovering from our trip to ny. we got home nine days ago. it was super busy. and i barely slept. and never slept well. and the travels were misery. but, we had lots of fun and adventures.
we loaded up and left on a friday afternoon after derek finished a test at work. thankfully, the kids were in vbs all week in the mornings and i was able to unpack and recover from the beach and repack and prepare for this trip without the two arguing siblings underfoot.
she was miserable. i climbed to the back of the van about 20 times. i would get everyone situated. and think i had a moment to rest. and then, the screaming would begin again. hazel is a girl on the go and being strapped into the carseat is torturous for her. the kids all finally fell asleep before 11 pm and we finished out the trip in relative peace. i tried to get some sleep, because no matter what time we go to sleep at our house, the kids are up at 630. and with the excitement of vacation, it would probably be earlier. we rolled in around 2 am.
we laid low all day. visited aunt eleanor and uncle ray. shopped for groceries and such. and then got back to swimming. anna hopped in with new gramma while zeke stood watch. (and barked at my mom incessantly).
this concludes my post for days one and two in batavia new york. hopefully, i can get the next post up in under nine days. 🙂
