I so did not want to be one of those parents that set a DVD player in front of their child on long car trips. I used to make fun of those people, and now I'm one of them. *shudder* Yes, my child watched Elmo's World across Texas and part of Oklahoma. I'm not proud of it but in my defense one can only listen to hysterical screaming so long before one drives into a ditch. If I never see that little red monster again it will be too soon. I will not be letting him watch TV for 2 months. This I swear.
The trip (other than the car ride) was wonderful. It was relaxing and we had a great time seeing family. Wesley was his usual happy, silly self. He enjoyed the vast amount of attention from all the different and new people. He had a great time meeting his cousin Sasha and announced that she was indeed a "baby" every chance he got. He also dazzled every one with his not so new word "battery". Since returning home he has figured out that it's just old Mom and Dad again and his newfound friends aren't around to constantly read to him at a drop of the hat. He's is totally bummin about that fact.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from this past week.
