Road Trip! I type,
Billy just splurted Tristyn's bottle all over the living room.

We are all in Gatlinburg, Tennessee!
In the Smokey Mountains.
10 hours in a car
With Tammy, Melissa, Ashlee, Leslee, BJ, Tristyn and Billy.
God help me.

All the kids were pretty good on the ride down.
Even Tristyn.
She is such an easy going girl.
Today we slept in, ate a brunch, ate dinner out and shopped.
It was rainy, but fun.

People always say...
You're bringing the baby?
I can't believe you drove all that way with a 4-month-old.
Blah, blah, blah.
Hey...your world just can't stop because you had a baby.
Take her with!
Yes, it's extra work, but she's worth it.
She had the biggest smile today when we were shopping.
I'm lucky she's such a good girl.
And I'm glad I have so many extra hands to help!

Oh...and my advice to new moms...
Forget the diaper bag.
Get a backpack.
It is sooo much easier and convienient.

people said the same to us when we moved from IN to GA when Camden was just a week old. I assume a mini-vacation is a little easier. Hope you had a blast!
