Traveling with the Twins

Here we go...
Here we go?

On Sunday, Samantha, Easton, and I are going to embark on a little road trip by ourselves.
(...and Aunt Kelsey for a leg of it.)

We will start off on Sunday, heading to Blake's mom and dad's house to drop off the dogs with PawPaw. We'll make a sharp turn right to head to Blake's sister, brother-in-law, and Lincoln's house to spend a quick night and have a quick visit before waking up to head to Oklahoma on Monday morning.

We'll spend Monday and Monday night with my brother, sister-in-law, and Baby Benjamin until we leave for Hardy, Arkansas on Tuesday morning with poor Aunt Kelsey in tow.

I'm sure Kelsey is super excited.
Who wouldn't be?!
She can't back out now.
You hear that, Kelsey!! You're coming, woman!

We'll drive the seven hours through eastern Oklahoma and the Ozark mountains before we reach my grandmother's house where we'll stay for Tuesday night, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning. 

At that point, we'll jump back into the truck, retrace the route we took a few days prior, and arrive back in Oklahoma on Friday just in time for everyone to come in town for Baby Benjamin's 2nd Birthday Extravaganza! 

We'll celebrate Benjamin's birthday with the traditional cake, ice cream, bounce house, Mexican food, Toy Story theme on Saturday before we head back home on Sunday. 

Are you getting tired just thinking about it?
I'm getting tired thinking about packing alone, much less the entire week-long trip.

Oh, and "Where is Blake?" you ask?

He says he'll be bringing in the cheese, working late and such, but I'm going to guess that he'll be doing a bit of the following:
  1. Rolling in the crisp white sheets of sleeping in a bed alone without the baby monitors turned on
  2. Eating Taco Bell every night for dinner
  3. Watching horrible man television like "Banshee" and crap like that
  4. Forgetting to put the toilet seat down
  5. Walking around the house naked (Neighbors, consider this a warning!)
  6. Leaving his dirty clothes piled up on the floor next to the foot of the bed
  7. Snuggling with the cat since no one is around witness
I would keep going, but I was beginning to realize that the more things I thought of the less you'd like to hear about them.

So, to recap... The kids (the two recently started using the potty and aren't currently wearing diapers during the day three-year-old twins) and I are heading out for a week-long trip... Alone.

Pray for us...
Pray for us?
