We left for Fairhope on Thursday morning. The ride down was not that great for AK. She does not like to sleep in her carseat so thank goodness for my big SUV because I had to climb back there several times and ended up sitting in the floor between the captain chairs for a little while. We are going to switch her to the big carseat this week and just keep it rear facing to see if it helps before we travel again! Anna Riley was wonderful on the way down...she is pretty used to traveling now and the 4 hours doesn't seem to bother her most of the time!
Once we got there though, we had such a wonderful time! This trip was really a great trip. The weather was great, Anna Riley was really great all weekend, and it was just nice to have family time! Mr. Doug and two relatives of Riley's from Seattle were there and they stayed with us Thursday and Friday night. Anna Riley really took to Annette and she loved spending the extra time with PopPop! The weather was perfect on Thursday and Friday and we really enjoyed lots of outside time. Anna Riley was SO excited to catch crabs in the crab trap with PopPop when she got down there. She talked about it Wednesday night and woke up talking about it first thing Thursday morning! It was supposed to rain and storm all day Saturday but it held off until bed time so we had lots of fun playing outside again. We walked with the girls to a breakfast place right by the house and the came back and just played outside all day.
