Standing on Six Legs: 1,987 Miles

Untitled While I was at home catching up on work and house projects, Jenn was putting another 1,987 miles on the car (not including all the excursions they took when they were visiting places).

Leg 1: New Hampshire continued:
Grammy & Pap-Pap met up with them in New Hampshire right after I left, and during this time they got to spend a lot of time hiking and playing in creeks. The kids were in their glory.

The first night we decided that it would be nice to sleep together as a family. It was a family bed for those who have seen Away We Go. So we put two twin beds together and had a pack-n-play for Grace.

Needless to say the next morning we decided that family beds worked better in the movies and it was ok not continuing this whenever rooms were available. Continue reading “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”
