On The Road Again

Friday morning we got a late start for several reasons. Too much to do and not enough hands to get it done. I also spent 45 minutes wedging carseats into the third row so the big three could watch movies the whole way to Athens. I had all three of them so excited about it I thought they just might burst. I almost did when the brand spanking new dvd player purchased the night before would not load or recognize any of the dvd's we had with us. It was a rhymes with TalCart R-SEE-A brand piece of junk. The kids did really well on the 6 hour drive with no video entertainment. We sang songs, read books and played games when we weren't begging them to be quiet and sleep.

HBomb on his first forward facing car seat ride. He loved it.

No movie player. Really? You think I can keep myself entertained the WHOLE way?

Sweet sweet Chloe O

J.B. did so well this car ride it was almost like he wasn't in there, but he was.

Once we arrived in Athens, we quickly unloaded and headed off to the Fiddler's Convention. The weather was perfect and so was the music. Finn loved hanging out with her Aunt Alice.

J.B. wasn't so thrilled about riding in the stroller and when he was off with the aunts solo, he gave them fits. Did I forget to mention how bad he can scream when he is tired before I sent him off? My bad.

Hutch loved the yoyo balls Aunt Kaye bought the girls. Finley loved licking the sugar off the funnel cake. Hutch decided knocking it to the ground after I had had only a couple of bites neccessary. I completely disagreed and almost cried about it.

Watching tv with Webb....all of the kids love some cousin playtime.

Lillian is the bestest 6th grade babysitter I know.

Hutch enjoying his breakfast at Aunt Alice's house. It was oatmeal and her dining chairs are upholstered, need I say more?

See what I mean? Bestest babysitter ever!

More tv watching with Webb

Saturday afternoon it was back to the Fiddle Fair and sand art was first on the list.

It was rather warm and J.B. didn't mind being in his shady stroller for the most part.

Hutch slept through most of the afternoon's fun.

Bees caught the girls attention for a really long time.

Funny side story--
When we went back to the Fiddle Fair, we parked behind a person's house that lives close to the college. We told them we were not staying long so we had to make sure our two cars would not be blocked in. They said okay and when we returned they were not, but there was one part of the backing that had to thread the needle of a couple cars. Me and the Ferg plus any kind iffy backing up situation and I am a wreck. So I asked one the guys if they would back my car full of kids for me. One agreed, climbed in the driver's seat and started backing up. Totally freaked the kids out and before he got to the road they were all screaming "Mama" and crying. I felt bad for them and probably should have mentioned it before he hopped in, but I didn't think they would care.
