Road Trip


This weekend we went on our first road trip with Cora. She did wonderful! We travelled to Columbus, Ohio to see Kevin's sister and her family. We went with Dobbie. It was a lot of fun visiting with them. We met up with them on Friday for lunch at a local pizza place. One of our 3 beautiful nieces was very excited about taking us to the store Friends 2B which is a part of Build a Bear. So we headed to the Easton Mall which is a very nice mall with some very fancy shmancy stores. Our nieces had fun showing us these stores and picking out a new friend to make and take home. We got a Starbucks (pumpkin spice latte decaf...yum yum!) while we checked out some other stores. I was able to pick up an adorable hat and sweater to go with Cora's Christmas dress. So cute!


We had some grinders for supper before heading back to their house. We finished our evening by watching Scooby Doo 2 with the girls, then headed to bed. Cora did so well. I wondered how she would do sleeping somewhere new. She only got up once to eat and went right back to sleep.


On Saturday we went to see our two older nieces soccer game. It was a bit chilly so I kept Cora cuddled in her blankets inside my jacket. She kept me nice and warm too. The game was fun. It's so neat to see what the girls are up to and be a part of their hobbies. They are both ready for the soccer season to be over this year. It's been busy for them.


We left in the afternoon and headed to the Cincinatti area to see Dobbie's sister. They are starting a quilting business and needed to swap quilts, crafts, materials, and such. It was fun to see her and her family. We headed back to Plymouth at 8:45pm and got home at 2:30 am. We stopped on the way to eat and to feed Cora, so that took a while.


Travelling with a baby is so different. Is she going to cry? Do we have enough diapers? Where will we be when it's time to feed her? Will she be warm enough or too warm? I think we only heard Cora cry one time on the trip. She did so well and so did we, I think!
