The girls and I took our first solo road trip this weekend to visit a friend of mind just over 5 hours from home.
Those girls were troopers for the drive; had a great time, and loved every minute of it!
The car ride there went smoothly; and the girls did so well on it. They fit right in with my friends little boys and played. Their manners were great, their moods, even better, and Elinore, well she stole the show.
She picked up toys without being asked, she said her prayers, talked up the adults and tried new things. She got to walk the pony, feed the pony and kitties, hang out at the barn to watch them and she jumped in for all of it!
This weekend with a friend was a much needed rest for this mom. We had no scheduled plans, and just hung out together with out kiddos and caught up and rested. It was relaxing and just what I needed before jumping back into the chaos that is our everyday.
