GREAT Auntie Julie is Taking a Road Trip

My mother-in-law is on her way here to spend the night, and then early tomorrow morning we are heading out to see that new Great-grandchild of hers, and my Great-nephew. There is a whole lot of greats going on. We can't wait to see him. Kendra is the only kid going with us this time, since it is a holiday weekend the other two can stay home with Travis.
The thing about road trips in Texas is that they are soooo-ooo-oooo boringly long. If you look at the map of Texas - we are about an hour from the Arkansas border, and we are heading out toward the Austin area. It is a four hour trip, and all along the way is a whole lot of nuthin'!
Last time we were there, we did have some excitement on our trip home. A crop dusting airplane had to dip below the power lines at the side of the road and almost flew into the front end of my van. Picture the wheels on the bottom of one of those babies appearing in the dead center of your windshield, and lifting up at the last minute. (If you don't believe me, read Kendra's post about it.) That kind of excitement I could do without.
A baby is always worth it. I love the way they smell, and the sweet little sounds they make. I do not want another one - but I love getting to breathe in that fresh smell of new life, and when that smell turns to a stink, to hand them back to their mommies and daddies!


  1. I bet you ARE a great Auntie!! Have a fun trip.

  2. I think you would be an awesome aunt too! Have a safe trip and enjoy that new baby. I love the little sounds they make at that age.

  3. It's too bad you aren't going to Dallas. There is the best bakery in Corsicana. Probably not worth the extra two hours to get there though...

  4. Have fun, we expect a full report when you get back :)

  5. The Austin area?!? Um, hello? I'd LOVE to catch up with you. Though I'm guessing if you're traveling with other family members you might not have meeting up with blogger friends on the brain. Hopefully we can make this happen sometime!

    Have a safe and fun trip.


Awaiting your words......
