Road Trip...

We had a surprisingly lovely drive from Chicago to Overland Park, KS yesterday. Mike originally intended to leave at 6am and then I asked if we could possibly leave at 7. In the end, we pulled out around 7:40 (really, not too shabby!) Owen cried for about the first hour. I fed him a little bottle and a little tylenol (he has had a bad cold all week and cut 2 new teeth, too.) He took a nice three hour nap.

He woke up just before Des Moines where we stopped at Wendy's. He ate some puffs, applesauce, and a little milk. When we got back into the car, he slept for another 2 hours and by then we were almost home. He gets the gold star for the trip! I hope we're so lucky on the way home! Everyone was very happy to see him. I think we're going to run to the mall later this afternoon (yikes!) It will be nice to run some quick errands with a babysitter!
