The girls and I were able to drive to Albuquerque for the 4th of July weekend. Unfortunately David had to work and couldn't come, but we made it there and back safely. I was nervous driving there by myself with Shyla not in diapers....but thankfully the dvd player in my van kept the girls entertained and Shyla was good about telling me when she had to go potty. We made it 7 hours without a single accident (pulling over 3 times off the highway and stopping at 3 actual places) and then she had 3 in the last half hour. So lame. lol But I'm still pretty proud of her. =) On the way back, David was very anxious and lonely so I put a diaper on her and just drove. However, she was still dry everytime we stopped for gas/lunch/stretch. Here's what we did in New Mexico:
Here's everyone waiting for the parade to start. It was hot and we had zero shade. We also didn't think to bring water or snacks for the kids. lol But I think they still had fun!
Tai gave her chair to her friend and sat in the tiny umbrella stroller. It was pretty funny cause right when this pic was taken, something snapped! So then Alex and I were able to tease her about breaking it. lol
Hahaha! I totally didn't even see Alex's face when I took this! Sooo funny!
The three oldest (Amber, Logan, and Jade) had to sit on the floor but here's the rest of the kiddos.
Okay - so I didn't take very many pictures. But we went swimming a lot and I helped Tai organize her girls' toys/clothes and we went shopping almost every day (haha Tai!). Other than that, Alex and I spent the weekend hacking Tai's facebook page and writing random status's - which she was quick to delete. Boo! But it was fun trying anyways. =)
