On the road again ~ First trip to NJ!

Friday we made our way to NJ for the weekend. It was perfect timing as I was starting to get a little cabin fever. It was great to be able to catch up on some blogging and organizing the hundreds of pictures we have taken of P so far. It’s amazing what you can get done when you don’t have a baby in your arms 24/7 😉

P did SO great in the car. We had to make a few stops and ended up “traveling” for about 9 hours. I sat in the back with him so that I could take care of puttting his paci back in his mouth everytime he knocked it out any small needs he had. We had to make 1 stop about an hour away from home for a diaper change and quick top off.   

Rob’s enlistment was up so we stopped at Andrew’s Air Force Base so he could complete his reenlistment. It was really neat to witness it and am so proud of him and his continued dedication to our Country! I also got my new ID so I can go on base by myself if P and I ever need to go! 

We stopped in Maryland so P could meet his Great Great Aunt Yi. He is named after her husband William Butler. She took us into her room and told us that she kisses the picture of her and “Uncle Bill” that we had restored for her. She now also keeps the picture of P right there and kisses him goodnight too. It brought tears to my eyes to see her with him! 

On Saturday, Mom treated Sarah and I to pedicures and lunch which was amazing! I love spending time with my little man but it was nice to have some girl time. 

Grandpa has a new name, Chief! He has been calling P little chief so I think it is appropriate that P calls him that when he gets older. I am curious to see what he can pronounce at first. While we were having our fun, Dad and Rob took P to the firehouse so he could and showed him all of the cool toys he gets to play with.

Chief, Bam and Aunt Sarah gave us the night off and we went to an AMC theater where you can order drinks, food and dessert in the theater while you are watching the movie. It was so cool and I had a great time! We had amazing food and watched Batman. It was really nice to spend time with Rob and we really appreciated being able to go out on our own.
