A Traveling Man

Drew and I went to visit family in Georgia for a week, and recently got back.
(Pointing to the plane outside)
a three hour flight, two hour lay over, and another three hour flight (oneway) were rather daunting but Drew slept the entire time. Both ways. And when he was awake, his tiny whimper couldn't be heard over the super loud plane engines.
(Layover in Dallas)
It looks like we will have to look into purchasing a small jet in order to get him to sleep through the night. It was my first time being away from Spencer, and Drew's for that matter- but somehow we still managed to enjoy ourselves during pedicures, shopping, and eating out :)
There was a surprise baby shower thrown while I was out there- which I showed up to in a swimsuit. Awesome.
We have been experiencing technical difficulties at our house, hence the fact all the pictures came from my cellphone and I can't post any pictures of the really cute airplane themed baby shower. 
Next vacation: California so Drew can meet his other cousins.

I'm glad you are back home safely! And so glad the plane ride went well. That can be so stressful with little ones.

He's adorable! Hope school is going ok for you! Love you.

We're glad we got to see you while you were here and we hope we'll see more of you at Christmas (though you know our record . . . ). I hope classes are going like a charm!

I told ya he would sleep the whole way! haha Im so glad he was an angel for you. That is a long flight! It would have been hell if he was fussy the whole time haha. He looks adorable in those pics! Thats nice you had room to bring ont he car seat. Did you pay for a seat or was the plane not full? I wish I could have done that.

I dont think I may ever get over the fact that you had a shower and no one bothered to tell me. I am truly hurt.

I can't believe you did that trip with Drew all by yourself! Traveling is so stressful with a little babe but thank goodness he slept the entire time! I'm sure it was so worth it to be able to go home. I'm obsessed with the pic of him in the cowboy hat! soo cute! I'm glad Drew got to meet everyone in GA! Can't wait to bring Nash there!
Love you!

Do you know that I was in Atlanta for like 48 hours a couple weeks ago? Maybe we were both there at the same time, but not hanging out. Sort of like in Provo. Can we maybe be friends and hang out? That would be so boss.

He is so adorable!! I remember traveling from coast to coast! Ughh! I hope it all went well. I think when you go to CA you go to SoCal - right? If you're ever up in the Bay Area and have a free hour or so - I'd LOVE to see you and meet little Drew.

love ya!
