Girls' Road Trip.

I had been planning to go visit Jennifer in Ottawa this weekend (a delayed birthday celebration weekend), but some really sad circumstances meant that we had to postpone our trip for a few weeks. Thing is, I had already done a lot of prep work to go on this road trip, baby and all. The car was full of gas, groceries stocked for Scott and Max, clothes and toiletries packed, cell phone fully charged, and nowhere to go.

I racked my brain on where Cam and I could go that was within a five hour drive and was baby friendly, and well, actually somewhere I wanted to go. It didn't take long for me to think of the perfect place - Ithaca, New York. Once I established that we would be welcome at my brother David and sister-in-law Haschmo's house, I reformed my plans and got some Yankee dollars, then we hit the road.

I am proud to say that Cameron did terrific. It took us 4.5 hours to get here and she only cried for the last half hour. I can't really blame her, that last half hour is tiresome. When we arrived, Cameron's cousin Zevi was thrilled to see her and I was thrilled to be off the road. I inhaled the sweet Ithaca air and relaxed like only you can do with family.

Now that I know Cameron is such a good little traveller, I am looking forward to the soon to be rescheduled visit to Ottawa. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy hanging out, do some shopping at Target, and drink some of that yummy Ithaca apricot wheat beer I love so much. Good times.


  1. Kat! I am so proud of you! Yay!

    Have fun in Ithaca with Cam the wonderbaby. Come visit when you get back. I should be done cleaning classrooms by then.


  2. Cam is a little adventurer in the making! We missed you on Saturday but it sounds like you were enjoying yourself!
