First Road Trip

December 1, 2009 Sarah Coggins

We took our son on his first big road trip for Thanksgiving. On Wednesday morning we loaded up the car and drove to Virginia to visit some of my family. He did very well – slept the first half of the ride and rode happily most of the rest.

We went to his Great Papa Smith’s house on Thursday where he managed to sleep through Thanksgiving lunch – waking only after most of the family had left.

Wishing his Uncle Christopher a happy birthday:

On Friday, we accompanied Grama & Pops to a Christmas tree farm where Pops cut down their tree. The view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the farm was beautiful. It was a cold day – perfect Christmas weather.

Posing with Grama & Pops before we left on Saturday morning:

On the way home, we stopped for a visit with his Great MawMaw and Great PawPaw (Trent’s grandparents). They were more than thrilled with the surprise visit from their only great grandchild.

Sunday the three of us enjoyed a quiet day together including a long walk outdoors (it was 69 and sunny!) and picking out our own Christmas tree.

    Seems like he is so happy most of the time. How wonderful that you stopped for his great grandparents to see him!
