Labor Day Weekend: twenty-seventeen
This summer has ended up with more road trips than we had originally planned. We planned for ONE and it turned into FOUR. I wanted to share a couple photos from our fourth and final road trip of the summer.
We went to Boston area and New Hampshire to visit from friends and family over Labor Day weekend. It’s about ten hours one way and with kids it’s about…34830 hours. Just kidding. We drove at night a lot which was great because the kids slept but also made me crazy tired (as if waking up with a newborn every night isn’t enough!).
The point of our trip was for Jake’s dad to meet Hadley. Since he had knee surgery early int he year, the drive just was not feasible for him. So we decided to take her to him! We were able to visit some of our besties as well, see other relatives, hang out by the river, have s’mores, a motorcycle ride, and try to relax!
People sometimes think you’re crazy for road-tripping with a new baby, but honestly, they’re the easiest at this age because they just look around and sleep! The hardest part is needing to feed them more often which results in more stops. So I will say that that is the frustrating part! As far as Emmett goes, we just load him up with books, toys, and snacks.
Jake and I got to go on a spontaneous date. We took a motorcycle ride to Alton Bay in New Hampshire and there happened to be an art festival going on. We walked around and got some icecream. I love having family to watch our babies <3
Did you go on any fun trips this summer!?
