I mentioned that he grew up a lot on this trip... it was fun to hear him try out new phrases and fun facts!
-I left the kids in the car to run in to ask Nina a question and when I came back he said in an exhausted tone "That took you for ages!!!"
- Walking back from the park that is a 5 minute walk (if that) from my parents house, we were headed up the hill to their neighborhood and in front of a lady Owen asks "Mom, many more hours are you going to make us walk?" That lady gave me a dirty look and I had to reassure Owen that we had only been walking 5 minutes and we had just 2 more minutes to go!
I wish we only had 2 more minutes to go to get home once we loaded up this morning.... we had 6 hours and that was the longest 6 hours ever!!!!! SO much harder than the 13 yesterday. I was SO thankful we drove the majority of our trip yesterday before we were super exhausted and anxious to get home! We ended up stopping SO much, one of which was an hour trip to Trader Joe's in St. Louis accompanied with a visit in the parking lot with Uncle Aric and Aunt Emily. We should have been home about 4 and ended up not getting home until 6. What a long day!
