We are home after a wonderful Christmas break. We traveled to Montgomery, New Orleans and Austin, Texas. We saw grandparents, aunts, uncles and all 7 of our first cousins.
We stayed in two different homes and two different hotel rooms.
We rode a trolley through Jackson Square in N'awlins and floated on the San Antonio River in a boat.
We ate southern comfort food in Alabama, beignets and oysters in Louisiana, and Texas BBQ in Austin.
And we survived.
I will blog more with pictures later when my husband will get them off of his computer. But today is the first day I have been alone since December 23rd. And when I say alone, I mean just me and 3 small children running around. Compared to the past few weeks, that is considered alone.
But here's a fun fact before I go. My 1 year old has now been to 12 states and my 4 and 5 year old have been to 17 states. I love that.
Lainey- Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas. And she has spent the night in every one of those states but 3.
Bennett and Will- All of the above plus Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois and Indiana.
Here's to 2014. More adventures, more travels and more advil. For me, at least.
time for some favorites
