I did remember my camera for the trip... however, that doesn't mean I actually used it much. Oh well. This is me.
We had a smooth ride to Mapleton, Utah on the 14th of October. I got up about 430am and had everything and everyone loaded for a 5am departure. When we got to the bottom of the pass, I had to stop and put air in one of the front tires. It was during this first stop that Jameson threw up a little. I thought it was a little strange, but luckily there was little damage done and on we went. Around 745 all boys were waking up and getting a little hungry for breakfast. I had packed TJ's cereal bars and bananas for what I thought would be a perfect car breakfast. Unfortunately I packed the seasonal pumpkin bars and this did not go over well while in motion. Both William and Zachary had a couple bites of their bars and then felt sick. William was first to throw up and then Zachary followed. (Yes, I do carry a barf bucket in the car and yes, they both made it!) I tried to settle their stomachs with banana and Zachary ended up throwing that up as well.
So, by Victorville, all three boys had thrown up and we required an 8am stop to use a restroom and freshen up ;) Haha.
After all that, the drive went fine. We had planned to stop in Vegas at the children's museum for our half way stretch break... but it just so happened the museum was closed on Mondays. Bummer.
We made it to Grandma and Grandpa's by dinner and enjoyed having the drive behind us.
The boys played all week with their cousins and had SO MUCH FUN. William, Zachary and Grant were almost inseparable! For the most part, everyone got along perfectly.
Our outings for the week included; lunch with Grandma great, pumpkin patch fun, a visit to Farm land at Thanksgiving point, playground fun by Provo temple and lots of play time with the cousins.
The big boys had their first pony rides at Farm Land and they were pretty siked about it!
The cousins made instruments one day and put on a parade... it was cute. I didn't capture it very well.
Jameson and Irelyn met for just about the first time on this trip. My brother and his wife came for family dinner on Sunday while we were there so we got to spend an evening with them also.
Our drive home was easy as well. I ended up leaving Monday night about 830pm and drove to Mesquite, Nevada. Got there about 1130, checked in, unloaded boys into beds and got a little rest. Woke up next morning about 7, fed the boys a little food and loaded them back into the car. We got home just after 2 in the afternoon, right behind Billy who had been out golfing all morning :) It made the trip seem SO much shorter to break it up like that.
I'm so glad we went and it was sure nice to break in the new car and test her out on the open roads :) Loving the Pilot.
