… and we’re off! Heading to Benjamin’s parents’ house in New Hampshire for a little weekend getaway.
What we’re looking forward to: Mountain views, lots of playing outside, a hike or two, good food and a glass of wine at the end of the day (for Mama, not Owen).
What we’re NOT looking forward to: The car ride.
The plan is to play hard all morning (and even try out a kiddie gym in our area) to get Owen nice and tired, fill his belly with a delicious lunch and then hop in the car and drive as fast and as far as we can while he naps. Fingers are crossed for an uber-nap and no traffic so we don’t have to drive the rest of the way with our Music Together music blasting (one of the only things that keeps Owen from fussing in the car), stuffing him full of snacks (the other thing that keeps him quiet), or singing at the top of our lungs (which only works 1/2 the time anyway).
Wish us luck! Mountain air, here we come.
