First weekend away from home and I must say, I did not forget anything (unless you count body lotion for me). Some things got used quite a bit (Jackson's play mat), while some didn't get used at all (my running shoes), but all-in-all, one thing is for certain...we need to invest in a car top carrier for our two weeks at the beach this summer.
Jackson did a good job this weekend, although he was a bit "off". His vibrating chair was definitely not a replacement for his swing at home, but Jackson was able to take a few catnaps in his chair giving mommy a brief break from feeding him and trying to get him to take a good nap.
So the reason for our visit...my Dad's birthday...and it had been too long since we've been down to visit anyhow! We never go hungry when we visit my parents and we got to eat like it was Thanksgiving (no really, we had a Turkey and all the fixins'!)...and I discovered that all that food is just as good lukewarm since Jackson decided it was his turn to eat just when we were all called to the dining room table.
So its back to our little "routine" that we have and while its much easier to shower with 5 other adults available to snuggle your fussy baby, its good to be home and be in our own beds.
