Several months ago, I was given the opportunity to work a full week in the summer. I talked to Mom to see if she wanted to coordinate a visit around that time and spend some one-on-one time with Mason/babysit while I was working. She came several days before I was set to work and we had a good time. We also coordinated a trip to Louisiana at the same time. That gave us time with Mom, gave her a ride home, and then had us in Louisiana for a good visit with Dad and Susan and lots of other family and friends.
Matt joked that when we left, he would be in the bed ASAP snuggled up but of course missing us. :) Just minutes after we left, he texted me these pictures!
We left on Saturday, August 25th and headed out to Montgomery first for a quick stop to see my great-aunts. Mom organized getting together with them and they loved it so much.
We made good time and Mason was a GOOD car rider.
We stopped at BK for lunch (not my fave) and Mason had a blast people watching. One of the employees also gave him a crown and a cookie. Made all of our days!
While we headed to MGM, Matt went to a PACKED movie. ;-) He loved it!
See? Good car partner.
Once we got to Montgomery, I was going to lay Mason down to finish his nap but he wasn't feeling it so I snuggled him for a bit in bed.
Then, he was on the move! My great aunts LOVED him and he just brought so much joy to the day there.
We got there in the afternoon on Saturday and left by 7:00 a.m. the next morning. It was a quick visit but we all enjoyed it. Mom had not seen our aunts in several years and Mason and I had not seen them in over a year. They are so precious and sweet.
Sunday morning, Mason woke up with some stomach issues so we got up and left early in case we needed to stop often. He did great the whole trip including 1.5 hours of traffic.
We made it to PawPaw's mid-afternoon on Sunday and had plenty of time for fun.
I will include those pictures in the next post though.
Up next is lots of Louisiana FUN!
