Oh boy, am I ever glad to be home! What a long day. What I thought was going to be a fairly easy and fun trip turned into a 12 hour drive and day. You see, Jason had to go to Albany to "clear" at battalion, his mother works/lives close by so we wanted to meet with her for lunch, and it was her birthday so it was a good day for us to see her. So we all piled into the car this morning (missing a playgroup with friends - boo!), and away we went. Aiden and Jakob did great for the first little while and then we had to stop and then Aiden didn't want anything to do with getting back in the car. But we had to do it. So off we drove with him screaming in the back seat for about 20 minutes until he crashed. We got up to Albany around lunch time and since the guys that Jason needed to see would be at lunch we called J's mother and met her for lunch. The boys we so happy to be out of the car and it was impossible to get Jakob to sit still through lunch - which was just fine, he danced around the table to Coldplay and Bob Marley!! Aiden was happy to sit and eat, alot! And then it was off to headquarters. What should have taken Jason 30 - 40 minutes to do, ended up taking 1 1/2 hours! So the boys and I spent a little time at Barnes and Noble and then sat in the car waiting for Jason. Unfortunately our DVD player in the car is having some problems with hiccups. It skips and pauses and jumps around. And each time it does this Jakob asks, "what happened?" - and after 25 times or so I start to go crazy! So I think tomorrow will be shop for a new DVD player day. Thank goodness the boys are asleep and we will be joining them shortly.
Love Big, Bake Often
