Day Twelve: Vacation
Started: Savannah, GA
Breakfast (muffins for them) and we were off! We stopped at the Florida welcome station for a little running around and a snack. Changed diapers. Then we piled them into the car and put in a DVD and were on the last leg of our trip.
We stopped at a rest stop in Gainesville that overlooks Payne's Prairie. Granddaughter decided to get down in the dirt (see photo). We ended up having to wash her in a spigot and changing her clothes! Amazingly, Grandson stayed out of it. He was busy chasing birds. We fed them some crushed up Goldfish crackers.
We had some more whining about "No night-night" when Grandson got sleepy again. I turned off the DVD player and put on a CD with some of their favorite songs. He eventually fell asleep. After about an hour, his sister followed suit. He woke up about 40 minutes from home. She stayed asleep until we pulled into our driveway.
Got home and called their parents. Daddy came and picked them up. They were happy to see him and he was likewise happy. Missed them a lot. We were afraid there would be more crying when it came time to go home (all the way home, I'd say, "you're going home" and Granddaughter would say, "But I want to see you!") but they were just as cheerful to get in that car as I've ever seen them.
I'm going to miss seeing their first smile of the morning! It was a great adventure. Too bad they are so young, they won't remember it (or much of it).
