Our Trip to Kentucky

This weekend we went to Kentucky to visit Casey’s Grandma and Grandpa.  We always go Easter weekend because Casey has 4 days off work.  I love going to visit them.  We have so much fun.  I was definitely a little worried about going this time.  Last year when we went Madelynn was only 3 months old.  She was nursed to sleep so there was no problem getting her to go to sleep then.  Now she’s completely weaned and had only slept in her bed.  I was so scared she wouldn’t sleep and she’d be super cranky the whole time we were there.  She proved me wrong.  She slept at night AND napped during the day.  Granted she didn’t sleep as much as she would have if she were at home, and it started to show in her attitude by Sunday, but she did great compared to what I had expected.  We did all sorts of fun stuff.  We went to Dollar General Market.  That place is just awesome!  It’s a mixture of Walmart, Aldi’s, and Dollar Tree.  I want one here.  When we came home MiMaw(Casey’s Grandma) or MiMi, as Madelynn called her this weekend, pulled Madelynn around in a wagon.  Madelynn enjoyed herself.  Then it was naptime.  Madelynn took a nap while we played dominos.  SDC15974 SDC15988

We also went to Goodwill while we were down there.  Madelynn rode in a golf cart with Grandma and Mary. SDC15999

And we all did a whole lot of visiting.  We enjoyed ourselves.  Madelynn will always want to travel with Grandma.  She got to eat Doritos, grapes, white castles, and chocolate shake on the way down there.  There was plenty of sugar and good stuff on the way back as well.  I’m looking forward to going back down there for Christmas.  Though I realized that I am never going to truly have a vacation ever again now that I’m a mommy.

And just for fun here are a few more pictures of Madelynn from this weekend.
