Alex's first road trip

This past weekend Kent, Alex, and I packed up the car and headed to wonderful Alexandria, Indiana. One of my good friends from college got married, so we took our first road trip with Alex. On the way there, he slept for the first 3 hours or so. We stopped to change him, which turned out to be a good thing since he had a major blow-out, and he then needed to eat. We put him back in his seat and took off again. He was definately a trooper on the way there. At the rehearsal he was a wonderful boy! He then fell asleep during the rehearsal dinner and was asleep most of the way back to the hotel. On Saturday, he had kind of a rough day, but pulled through and was great when he needed to be. He slept through the entire wedding ceremony and the reception dinner. He woke up in time for his first Mother-Son dance. :)

On the way home, we stopped in Remington to get gas, and realized that it wasn't too far out of the way to surprise my dad for father's day. So, we continued on to Watseka and looked for their vehicle at church. It turned out that church was getting out in about 5 minutes. So, after the closing prayer, we walked into the sanctuary and got to see some wonderful surprised faces. Mom and Dad were so excited to see us. Okay, who are we kidding, they were excited to see Alex!
