we had a four hour road trip to make on sunday. david had to stop at a customer's house and our buddy sawyer had to drive the uhaul, so ava and i were riding solo the whole way. i was a little bit nervous about the drive because i have a really sassy toddler and driving with a screaming toddler is pretty close to my idea of hell, but luckily she was a snoozin-susan almost the whole drive and a real trooper while she was awake. for all the many places we've dragged her to, we really couldn't ask for a better little buddy. a couple movies on the ipad and a couple pretty necklaces to oogle over and she's a happy camper.
i always go for comfort when i'm traveling and these joggers are probably my favorite thing in my closet right now. i bought them at walmart for $14 and they are worth their weight on gold! they have a super flattering fit and they are a great comfortable option for when you want to wear stretchy pants but not look like you just rolled out of bed. i found this tshirt at my trusty kmart for $4 and it has a really great long fit. ava was really into pointing to it and roaring. my little lion cub!
we are now in nebraska and this might be the last stop on our summer adventure for me and ava. we are in the same town we lived in for six weeks last year and i can't help but be reminded of that time with every place i go here. i remember my tiny baby who wasn't quite crawling yet and the way she would sit up and play with her toys for hours. i would mix oatmeal and prunes in the food processor for her and she would sit in her walker in the kitchen and watch me make dinner every night. she is so different now that it's hard to think of her as that same baby and it makes me wonder if next year i will feel the same way. does this ever end? this growing up thing? and if not, will i ever get used to it?
