Recap of today...

So we started the day off by taking Julian to my mother-in-law's house so that he could play with B&C, and we could get some packing done. We also went to Walmart to get some stuff for the trip. Since we're going to be on the road for about 5 days straight, I'm not going to be able to use my beloved cloth diapers. So we bought some disposable diapers, and wipes, and some other random things. Then we came home and packed up our clothes! All but about 2 weeks worth of clothes. Tomorrow we are packing up the shoes, and hangers, etc. Julian stayed over at my MIL's until about 2, where we picked him up.

My MIL attempted to get him to nap. She tried to lay him down, and he got back up and said, "I'm sorry, I can't do that, Grandma Ann." What a funny little boy I have. When we got in the car he pretty much zonked out instantly. We went and picked up some more boxes, and then came home. The boys and I went to meet Carly and her kiddos at Ruston Way. Carly and I walked all the way down and back! We also decided that 5 years from today, she and I are going to go on a trip to Greece! No kids, no hubbies, just shopping and the beach! :)

Julian decided that the water was fine, despite the fact that it was FREEZING! He went up to his belly button in the water. He fell down, and took a bit of water in, spit it out, and then ran out. He went back for more though, and got knocked down by the waves, and then I had to go save him! Poor guy!

Julian's got a new thing. Whenever we are in the car, driving anywhere, he immediately says, "Mommy, are we there yet?" Seriously. All. Of. The. Time! It's cute, yet super frustrating! I can only imagine our trip to Iowa! The entire way there, I'm sure he will be constantly asking me! UGH! Gabriel gave us a hint of what it was going to be like on the way to Iowa as well. He cried so much today. I don't know if he's teething maybe? But seriously cried, a lot.

Tomorrow's plans are for lunch with Mary and her girls, and Barry's going to finish packing our shoes and stuff, I think we'll be done, except for Julian's toys, which will be an undertaking of its own!

I stayed up WAY too late yesterday, so I think I'm going to be hitting the hay at a reasonable hour tonight! :)

Wow, that's a far and HARD move! I can't imagine being 4.5 hours from my family, let alone across the country! Good luck! I'll make sure to check in with your blogs to keep updated! Your boys are so stinkin adorable! TOTALLY looks like Barry!

Oy...the joys of packing! Brennan was about 13 months when we moved from PA to WI and he was a joy during the drive *eye roll*...and that is soooo weird...I call my boys B&C too!
