Lake House

The first weekend of November, we struck off on our annual Arkansas lake house trip with the Bakers and Blackmans. We think this is our fourth year to do this, and I’m so proud of us for continuing to carve out time for time for both mamas and little girls to foster and nurture our friendships.

HG insisted that Cressey come along, and who can say no to such a sweet sister plea?? So I agreed. She actually did as well as could be expected on the 2.5 hour car ride. She only slept about 30 minutes each way and a dirty diaper made her mad as we arrived at the lake, but generally, she was content and entertained by the Baker girls in the car with us. She hated the pack n play the first night (and kept me awake with her groaning), but we both slept better the second night. Naps were nonexistent, but the house was a little wild with all those little ladies. And it made for a quiet, nap-filled week when we got home!

The big girls had the best time running around the basement and making videos. They really pick right up where they left off the last time we saw each other, and it’s so good for the mamas to get to catch up too!

Ready to hit the road, packed to the gills!

When the {lack of} nap situation got a little dire, Jen and I hopped in the car and just drove! Anything for a few minutes of peace.

Oh yeah, Daylight Savings Time hit while we were there. Cressey was up and had a nap before the sun rose. Zzzzzzz
