road trip pictures: recap of day 5

So…it’s day 9.  We’re still alive.  This is good.

There are so many stories to tell, so many pictures and so many memories we’ve been blessed to make.

BUT…we’re also exhausted.

So tonight, here are some pictures from our drive through Baltimore on our way to New York City.  We stopped by the harbor for a picnic lunch and had some fun to break up the drive.


I love him.  Even if he didn’t want to sleep tonight.


This girl…LOVE.


Bonus points for everyone who points out how adorable he is.

This picture makes me fall EVEN more in love with him.  EVERY TIME.  Goodness.

I love this series.  And these boys…


Nutella.  YES.

I’ll write more about this later, but our genius friends over at the Happy Family Movement gave me an idea.  We made a “road trip” bucket list of sorts with the kids and wrote each one on a little slip of paper.  At the beginning of each day one kid gets to grab one from the stash and we then have the entire day to accomplish that one thing.  This day, J happened to pull “Play Leap Frog.  Bonus points if it’s not at the playground.”  And here it is.

Take time with each photo.  I call this series Leap Frog gone wrong/some of my favorite moments ever.  THANK YOU, Happy Family Movement!  We love you guys!

And finally – a few shots from the road.

Good night, y’all!

    […] all glorious.  That the day was like one in the movies…  Not so much.  (although that was the day we played leap frog in Baltimore.)  The kids were cranky and tired.  I threw up in New Jersey.  (So awesome)  I even texted my […]
