This was a bit of a last minute trip for us. Last Monday night, we were on the phone with our college friends and decided we would make the 5 hour drive to visit them last weekend. Change of plans for the date night I had originally planned. But this was better. Road trip! Lesson #1: When you haven’t traveled in 2 years, any chance to leave the house will not be passed.
We left after work on Friday. Arrived Friday evening. Tried to put the kids down, but they were way to excited to see their friends. This made for a late Wii game night with our friends. Lesson #2: No sleep required on road trips, especially trips with young children.
It was so good to see our friends again. They are in the military and he will be deployed in October. They are moving later this month to New York for training before deployment. This was our last chance to see them before they moved farther away. This weekend Nathan and I got a glimpse into lives of those on active duty in the military. We appreciate all of those serving and your families for all you do! Lesson #3: Best friends are good to keep around.
Nathan said: We rode in an old Suburban to the beach and the trip reminded me of traveling with my family in our old suburban. Lots of great memories of family vacations. It is nice to be making some of our own memories now.
