First of all, I want to apologize for being absent most of the week. Sweetpea, Buddy, and I were going to drive to my parents house by ourselves for vacation but my mom surprised me by flying into our area to drive with us. It was a huge surprise so thank you Mom, Dad, and Jon! Needless to say, I was a little flustered and did not get my entire list, things like prepare auto-post on typed blogs, completed before we left. Blogging took a backseat to family and traveling. We are now at my parents' house and loving being on vacation. Buddy and Sweetpea did so awesome on the long drive and packing for children in plastic ziploc bags worked very well.
