Road Trip: Hyde Park, New York

Ian and I went on a road trip two weekends ago to Hyde Park, NY, a short 7.5 hour jaunt. On the drive to NY, we left at 5 am. He doesn't usually wake up until 8:30 am or later, so he slept the entire way except for a late breakfast stop. We arrived at my friend's mother's house in time for a late lunch. He had a great time playing with my friend's almost two year old daughter, Stella. Stella kept trying to hug him and he kept trying to escape, but it was funny to watch.

He felt very relaxed at Nanny Tanina's (Jay's mom) house as he made 4 or 5 dirty diapers there. Grandmother's seem to have this effect on him. He also ate large quantities of food which every Nanny likes to see.

We spent the night in a hotel and met up the next morning. After lunch out and more playing, we left at about 4:30 pm. The trip home was not as easy because Ian was not happy to be in the car. It started to snow outside of Syracuse and since it was also dark and Ian was fussing, we pulled off the highway and spent another night in the hotel.

Yes! I should have gotten out the camera the first day because the light was good and there were many photo-worthy moments, like Stella hug-tackling Ian, that was funny!
