Texas, here we come!


(A big scary cow/bull/massive beast we encountered in Texas in 2007!)

Well, we as in me and Beck, anyway! Unfortunately, Adam can't come with us. :( By the time we get back (we leave in a week and will be gone for two weeks), Beck and I will have been away from Adam for a month so far this year! So wrong! But it's just the way things work out sometimes, I guess. But despite that sad fact, I am way excited! I'm going to be in San Antonio visiting Elise (wahoo!) and then in Houston visiting my brother and his little fam. Also while we're there I'm going to be meeting up with Adam's grandparents who haven't met Beck yet, so that'll be way fun! And I get to meet up with my friend Stephanie, too! AND, my parents and my sister are going too! So all in all, I'm pretty excited.

The only other sad fact about this trip is that I'm going to be traveling by myself with Beck--ah! I'm actually not too scared, but it will definitely be a new adventure. Any advice on traveling by yourself with an 8-month-old?

Lots of breaks! Also with toys, introduce one and then when he gets bored, take it away and give him a new one.. then by the time he gets tired of the 2nd toy, the first one will be fun again! Thats what I do with Travis.. I have travled with him back and forth from New Mexico 6 times by myself already... just be prepared to have a cranky baby! Your also flying right? If you're holding him its best to have an aisle seat.. but if hes in his carseat put him next to the window! I have done both and its amazing how distracted they get with the window!

I love San Antonio! You will drive by my house in Texas. If you see a giant caterpillar on the side of the highway, that's where I'm from (not the caterpillar, but the town it's in) Anyway, as for advice on taking a road trip with a baby, DRIVE FAST! haha. jk.
