As it turned out, she and Dionna of Code Name: Mama were also working out plans for a visit. As we were working out how to align our dates for one larger get together, Amy of Presence Parenting jumped on board as well! It would be Spencer's first road trip!
Spencer did great! He stayed dry and then "went" for me when we made our first stop, about an hour into the trip. He was wet when we stopped again an hour later, but he still went for me. Sasha, on the other hand, started whining and asking to go home 20 minutes after leaving.
We had planned a very low-key vacation together and I didn't even snap any pictures Friday evening! We got up and around at our own paces on Saturday morning before heading to the Dickerson Park Zoo for Dollar Days! We didn't arrive until about noon, so we missed the morning rush. It was still pretty busy.
We only spent 2-3 hours at the zoo before heading back to "home base." We took a short time to regroup and get ready for the next activity. We met up with Amy and her family at Nathaniel Greene Park for a picnic!
When we left the park, we discovered the Nutella Fairy had paid a visit to our truck bed! There was a wholesale club double-pack of Nutella back there! Oh I have been a very good girl!
Dionna came over to hang out with Joni Rae and I on Sunday as well.
Before Dionna and family left, they offered to take some portrait style shots of my family. In this particular shot, our world is revolving around Sasha - just as it should.
On Monday morning we got up, did diaper laundry, packed, and hit the road...
The ride home was a bit less pleasant, with all three kids whining at one point or another. We had such a wonderfully laid back vacation hanging out with Joni Rae (and her kids) and getting to visit with Dionna and Amy (and their families).
