On Thursday morning we packed up the car, loaded up Emerson and set out on the 1000 mile trip to Texas. We only stopped a few times throughout the 14 hour trip but Emerson did surprisingly well. We drove through most of the night and she slept some but she woke up when we were about 30 minutes away. That was probably the roughest part of the trip. She was so ready to get out of her carseat and she just cried and cried until we made it. It was around 3:30 a.m. by that time and we were all pretty exhausted. But it was definitely worth it!
Emerson has been so, so excited to be with her grandparents and we have loved being home. I think this is probably the first time since we were married that we have been in Texas in the fall. I think being within driving distance of home is one of the best parts about living in California.
I haven't taken a lot of pictures since we've been here, but here are a few:
This is blurry, but I still love it. Emerson began utilizing the doggy door immediately. She and the dogs have spent many hours out in the backyard. After seeing how happy she is out there, Jesse and I are even more convinced that we need a backyard and a dog for our sweet girl.
Mimi made broccoli cheese soup and Emerson wasn't a fan at all. Haha! :)
This little suitcase is full of Barbie's from the '60's. It also has tons of Barbie clothes handmade by my Grandmother. Emerson has played with them for hours.
And, since I failed to to do a 25 week bump update last week, here's a little peak at the growing belly, from a different point of view.We're going to be in Texas for a while so my posting may be a bit sporadic, but I'm slowly catching up with my Halloween crafts posts and I'll definitely be doing a 26 weeks(!) bump date on Wednesday.
Happy Monday, friends!
