Since I had a week off before starting a new shift at work, we loaded up the Explorer and went to Virginia last Friday. We had a wonderful and relaxing time with Amy's family. The worst part of the trip was the drive home. Although the return trip should have taken about 9 hours, it took a little longer...12 hours. A few things contributed to the delay:
*We had to drive to Williamsburg to get Alora's stroller because we forgot to get it out of the van before Vivian drove to work.
*Our stubborn dog took way too long to use the bathroom each time we stopped. (Actually, Addy didn't use the bathroom until we arrived back at our house.)
*Alora vomited on herself while we were driving. So, of course we stopped. (Also, I am sure you can imagine the wonderful smell that stayed with us for the remainder of our trip!)
