So the idea of getting away for Thanksgiving was being tossed around. I was open to the idea, but realistically I thought we just could not afford to go away for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have been planing Christmas since last March. Yes that is right 9 months I have been thinking about Christmas.
OK let's get back to the little man's first Thanksgiving. We finally bit the bullet and decided to go. Even though the car was in the shop and we knew we had a huge bill to be paying when we got back. The bonus of it all was we had a awesome rental car that the dealer gave us and we took that as our road trip car. Very sweet ride!
Little man did great. It was a six hour trip in the car and he sat in his seat and just laughed and giggled all the way and back. He drank his bottle and slept. He was a fun little traveler. We stopped to diaper change and stretch our legs.
I was a bit nervous about the hotel sleeping arrangements, that was wasted energy. Little Man did just fine. He went right to sleep in the port-a-crib. No problem. The whole trip he was a happy joyful baby like he is at home. The travel didn't effect him in anyway. He got to meet a few cousins and family that he has never met before and had the time to reunite with his Grandma and Grandpa. It was a fun trip.
We only stayed two nights as that was our budget for the trip, we ate a great Thanksgiving meal and had some NC BBQ just before heading out of town. I am glad we made the trip.
My only regret is that I don't have any pictures of the adventure. Our camera is broken and I just forgot to use the cell phone camera while we were there. Oh Well. Sorry little man, you will not have any first Thanksgiving pictures. Maybe next year.
