The road home is always longer than the road to see friends or family. We've been on our 2012 friend tour. It was difficult to be so close to family and not see them, but we never have enough time to see friends and family in one trip. Tom has a 3 week break from school and we decided it would be a good time to drive down south and see some friends.
Simon proved to be a good baby once again. On the way down, he behaved himself for the first 10 hours, and then the 2 hours from Birmingham to Auburn were a little loud to say the least. But then, at that point, I wanted to cry too, so I don't really blame him for being a bit cranky. We were able to drive back home in about 10 hours - which was awesome. Little man did really well this time around, and we're thankful to be home safely. We miss you already friends!
