We were planning on going home (from Houston) on Saturday so we could be at our church on Sunday. We thought it would be perfect. We left at 6:30 and thought the kids would sleep most of the way home. Well Hunter fell right to sleep and Maggie was happy for a little while. We stopped at my favorite place for some coffee on our way out of town...
Why don't we have one in Abilene?!?!??
By the time I got back in the car Maggie was crying. So I thought I would go ahead and feed her and change her diaper since we had stopped. Finally we got back on the road.
Then Maggie started screaming. I felt so bad! She had NEVER cried like that before. So I got back in the back and tried to comfort her. Poor little girl! So we stopped again! This time Hunter woke up and was hungry. Then he needed to go to the potty and we couldn't find his shoes... needless to say we were at that gas station for a while.
Finally we looked down at the clock only to see it was 9:00. We had been on the road for 2 1/2 hours and had only gone 62 miles!!!!! At this rate we would be back in Abilene around 5 AM!! So we decided the responsible thing would be to go back to Nana and Grumpy's and try it again in the morning. We figured out Maggie is afraid of...
The dark. We should have known. Hunter was scared of the dark too!
Sunday morning we left Houston around 11 and made it home just fine! We were super sad we missed church, but we got to spend one more night with Nana and Grumpy. :)
The End :) (Now Ben will be excited I told the story of the way home.)
Maggie and Nie Nie =) (I was going to post this pic in the last post but somehow didn't... so here it is!)
