Lessons learned during Labor Day weekend

5 Sep

This weekend, we drove 6+ hours to Cleveland to visit with some of Deron’s relatives. Here is what I learned along the way:

1) Six hours is a long time for a baby to sit in a car seat. It turns out that they don’t like it much. Message received Henry.

2) Ten people cannot eat a chocolate sheet cake that serves 40. Doesn’t matter how hard they try. There will be cake left over for days.

3) B Spot is AMAZING! Recommendation: Lola burger (with fried egg on top), onion rings, vanilla/apple/bacon milkshake. Ranks up there with my favorite local burger places, Kuma’s Corner and Edzo’s. Yum!

4) Three-year-olds can be very wise. Learned that you can “shake the grumpies” out. I’ll remember that for the next bad day little A.

5) Baby Henry doesn’t like sharing a room with mommy and daddy. Scratch that. Henry loves sharing a room with mommy and daddy so much that he wants to stay up all night and play. I am, yet again, thankful for caffeine.

6) Road trips are a fantastic time to cram for an impending (?) trip to Latin America. Me gusta aprender espanol con Coffee Break Spanish. (side note: I still MIGHT be going to Bolivia. That “might” is driving me crazy!)

With Labor Day weekend almost over, we say good-bye to summer. Good-bye to long, sun-filled days at the beach. Good-bye to grilling in the backyard. Good-bye to flip-flops. Good-bye to green, leafy trees, flowers, and chirping birds. Summer, we will miss you so, so much!
