It had been a long time since we had been on a road trip, so when the opportunity came to drive 5 hours southeast to celebrate our nephew's 16th birthday last weekend we decided to go. It actually felt good to be taking a trip again - it helped that the kids did exceptionally well. They watched an awful lot of "Busytown Mysteries" while Matt got to have uninterrupted conversations. I also got a lot of knitting done.

Our nephew got a car for his birthday! It was fun watching him be surprised.
On the drive back home, Matt stopped at Pistacia Vera to buy a big box of macarons to take home.
He knows the way to my heart, that man. :)
As always after any trip, it's so good to be home, sleeping in our own bed with our kids on their proper nap/bedtime schedules. We were nervous taking a long trip with two kids in diapers, but it went really smoothly. I think we'll be ready to do it again at Christmas time!
