Babies, Birds, and Books

Well, we survived a road trip with a 2 year old! Actually, it wasnt that bad. Grace had a rough time in the car yesterday on the way home but who can blame her?!?! I was sick of being in the car too!! All in all, a fun trip to Pittsburgh.

We "dined" on Primanti Brothers sandwiches, O's Famous Hot Dogs, and spent time with Baby Galen.














Pittsburgh is home to the National Aviary, where we saw some incredible birds including a bald eagle who lost her left wing. She is HUGE! Grace chased a few stange looking birds around the greenhouse area.














We also stopped by the Children's Museum where the storybook character "Arthur" had his whole town set up; Grace is so smart---spent most of her time there in Arthur's library!

















Just wanted to share a bit of our trip with everyone! Enjoy!

We barely get out to hit up the mall or grocery store - you went out of state to museums! Amazing!

HAHA! After 4 hours in the car, she SCREAMED for 45 minutes! Seriously I thought I was going to go INSANE! But all in all, she did great and she was so sweet with Baby Galen. Makes me want another !!! :) hehehehehe.

I just attempted a 6-hour trip with my Gracie. What an adventure. I was lucky enough to get her to sleep for 4 hours of the trip on the way there, then about a 1/2 hour of fussing. (boy isn't it easier when there are two of us in the car!!) On the way back I wasn't quite so lucky. Poopy diaper, fussing, more poopy, more fussing, you get the drift!

Your daughter is adorable. I think I want another all the time, but then think-- wow, I need to wait until this one is out of diapers!
