a week and a half ago, we made a quick trip up to rolla, mo to see lane's aunt and grandparents. quick as in less than 36 hours! it had been a year and a half since we had visited last. lane has such wonderful memories there that he has been dying to share with me and the boys.

thursday morning, we were on the road by 6. we got the boys up, changed diapers, and threw them in the car in their pj's. from tulsa it takes about 4 1/2 hours. we made it in exactly 4 1/2 hours with a 30 minute stop included. 3 hours into the trip, ledger needed to eat so we stopped at a mcdonalds. i fed ledger while canon and lane picnicked-styled in the parking lot. after the boys bellies were full, we changed them and got them dressed. i'm a pro at changing diapers in the car! might be a little ghetto, but bathroom changing stations gross me out.

the great thing about visiting rolla is the fact that i have no sense of time while we are there...it's so relaxing! we ate lots of yummy food. grammie is a great cook! i got some new, EASY recipes. the weather was wonderful that day so we spent a lot of the day outside. aunt lori couldn't resist waiting to give canon his birthday gift. she's an avid golfer, and got him a real set of golf clubs. they are the cutest things! lane kept saying that they were nicer than his.

the boys didn't have much sleep that day, but they did great. we got to visit with lane's great-aunt and her husband, too. as short of a trip as it was, i was so glad that time went by slowly!

stay tuned for the rest of our trip...
