Our First Road Trip!!!

My oldest stepsister, Brandy, got married on June 25th in Noble, Oklahoma and since we weren't going to miss it for the world, this meant a road trip with a newborn! Maddie was not even a month old at that point, so packing took for-ev-er! Thank you to Lisa and Janet for coming over to hold Maddie while I packed, it was a HUGE help!!

Here we are ready for our first road trip:
Maddie did very well!! We made it all the way to the Texas/OK border before she woke up and decided she was hungry. Unfortunately, it was just in time for a long stretch of nothingness combined with construction, a 55 mph speed limit, and stuck behind a semi- not such good timing! She had to cry for a little bit, but then we found a Sonic where she enjoyed a nice foot-long coney, I mean milk. After she ate, we put her back in her car seat and she fell back asleep all the way to Pop and Gram's house! It made for a fantastic start of our mini-vaca!

Maddie got to spend the first part of her trip meeting her OK family and soaked up every bit of love they poured out on her! I don't think she once touched a surface other than laps unless she was being changed...spoiled already! ;)

Here was Maddie in her overalls! She was ready for the farm, until she fell asleep that is!
Here she is lovin' on GG and Pop:
After spending the day in her overalls, she had to get dressed up and ready for the wedding. Brandy was beautiful, as was the wedding! We had a wonderful time and were so happy we were able to go. Here are some snapshots from the wedding...notice how many Aunts she has!!! Love being in a big family!
The ride home was just as nice as the ride up there, thanks to Maddie's wonderful ability to sleep in the car. We can't wait to go back!!!
