road trippin'

yesterday we went down south to visit the goldings for their son tyler's 5th birthday party. we had also been invited further south for a dinner with an old high school buddy and his family.

since our time in the car was about 4 1/2 hours, we considered it a mini road trip and decided to make the most of it.

good tunes, heartfelt conversations and don't forget trying to keep calm a gal who doesn't like to be confined for long periods of time.

we had a lot of fun, came home tired, but i considered it our first successful trip of 2010. no vomiting and getting to our destinations without an ounce of trouble. let's hope this trend continues.

Oh! I love that picture of your little doll!!! SO CUTE!! I'm so glad that you all had a wonderful time together. I love successful road trips. When they go well, there's nothing like being trapped all together in a car for hours on end. :)
