"C" is for Car Trip

We traveled to John's parents' house for the 4th of July weekend.  This was our first long car trip: 9 hours.  We cheated a little bit and stopped at his sister's apartment in Dallas.  This made for a nice break/half-way point.  I didn't have a total meltdown, and neither did Tully, so overall I'd call it a success.

4th of July at Lake LBJ
Tully didn't mind the swing.  I bet he really gets into it next time we visit.
John found a lizard on the fence who put on a little show for us.

Tully played patty cake with Aunt Sassy.  He loved it.

Tully had his own mini-bedroom, complete with light and vent.  The closet in our bedroom was nice and quiet for him to rest, and it kept me from hearing every little noise he makes in his sleep.  We didn't lock it, so you won't have to report us to child services.


  1. Looks like you all had a successful first car trip! We've had friends put their babies in the closet to sleep when they stayed with us...I get it, but it still cracks me up! lol! I just noticed Tully's monthly pics on the side! LOVE them, such a cute idea!

  2. Well, C is for congratulations! That first long road trip is pretty intense, in a sense. There's always this uncertainty whether your kid can handle that long time on the road, so there's some preparation involved.
