Idaho...Nebraska... Ohio..Illinois.. Dc... Finally NEW YORK!!

Well Well where do I start.. So we made it to New york after 36 hours of driving, random throwing up for 15 hours, Liquid diapers, and 11 outfits later in 3 days a sigh of relief when I say... WE MADE IT!!!

On the morning of our departure we filled our car to the rim with clothes and anything else that we could think of that would fit in a small corolla took one last glance at our little house that we love and headed out East. Ten minutes into the adventure Aiden starting throwing up. He started throwing up in his blanket then wiping it on his face before we could wipe it off. ha ha but yes still smiling. We got him cleaned up, changed, and began the journey again. We drove threw Nebraska and it was so pretty, Iowa was just a lot of Winmills and Home of the classic "Field of Dreams." Chicago was awesome! I would love to spend at least a week there. Then off to Indiana, and then straight to DC. We spent a week in Washinghton DC and we loved it. In DC there is so much to do and everything is very clean. That following sunday we got up and drove to our home away from home to Long Island NY. It is very pretty here in Bellport, the city is 50 mins away, Hamptons are 20 mins away, and the local beach is only 5 mins away so we are very excited.

Here are some pictures from our crazy Adventure in some pretty random order so sorry cant figure out how to put them in order, so here you go... Also if trent is plugging his nose in any of the pictures it is because Aiden had the runs and they were so smelly!!! Enjoy and we miss you all!!!
























This picture is for you Kristie!!














































































































Look at that time!!! 31 hours and only stopped for 4 hours for changing Aiden and grabbing food... Trent was also excited for that fact that he made it to 105 mph!! (not safe) ha ha

























































































This Thomas book was a life saver on the trip, Aiden loved looking at the pictures and listening to the music. He Loves it! Thanks Mckay!



























































































Aiden was so smelly with the runs























































Yep That is the shot 10 min away from our little home

What an adventure! I'm just shocked to hear you thought Nebraska was beautiful... I've driven through and thought not... must have been all the stink getting to you! :)
Have a good summer back east! Sounds fun!!

Wow, I'm so glad you are all OK, and your trip was great. The pics are so fun. There is so much beauty across the country and it's fun to see it all. I hear things are going well for you. What a great opportunity to see the country and meet new people. I want you to know how much I love visiting with you. There's nothing like family and you guys are and will always be special to me. Have a great time. I look forward to all the pictures and hearing how much fun you're having. Aiden is so cute, I just want to give him a squeeze. Give him one for me. Love you guys....Aunt Val

Wow...you are BRAVE!!! I think I would have taken the baby and hopped on a plane before I attempted driving across the country with him. Glad to see you made it! Are you guys selling pest control or security systems? I'm assuming that's why you're in NY. Well you'll have to post on your blog a lot so we know what you're up to!!

Looks like a fun road trip, minus the throwup and stinky diapers. :) Glad you guys are having fun in NY.

Amy said...

It sounds like you handled that long trip well! I bet that was so much fun and so miserable at the same time. I'm excited for you. It would be so fun to be so close to the big city and the beach! Have fun!

Hi Heide! I'm really sorry I didn't get back to you earlier, it was a little crazy last week. So I was wondering if Saturday, June 6th would work for you to come in to the city? I'm so excited to see you, let me know if that works.
