Graycen's first out of town trip

Graycen had her first out of town trip this weekend. We hauled everything up to Sebeka to see David's nephew, Chris, graduate from high school and it was a bonus that David's parents live up there as well.

Thursday: Graycen did so well in the car. She was knocked out almost instantly when we got in the car. She slept most of the way only to wake up and play a little while before we got there. We get there and she met her Grandpa Jones for the first time and got to see Grandma Jones again. Bed time!!

Friday: We hung out all day. Graycen got to go to Grandma's work and meet all of the co-workers that Grandma gushes to about her! We hit the local Walmart up there and did a little shoppinh. Then we went to visit Sherri & Chuck. Graycen got to meet Sherri's chihuahua, Loco. She loved him! For the first time ever - she laughed, hysterically! The camera battery was dead, otherwise I would have caught this on camera!
David and Carren went to Chris' graduation later on that evening. I didn't go because I had to put little scooter butt to bed!

Saturday: Graycen came down with a cold! YUCK! We pretty much hung out all day.Later that day we decided to drive in to Wadena to get Chinese food for dinner. Little did we know, they are closed on Saturdays. So, we stopped at the Walmart in Wadena.

Sunday: I had been up so much with Graycen throughout the night, so I was absolutely BEAT!! David got up and got Graycen ready. The two of them and Carren (David's mom) drove in to Brainerd to do some shopping and let me sleep! Boy, was that nice! I woke up, ate some cereal and then took a shower! It was wonderful. Later on that day we attended Chris' open house. We relaxed for the rest of the day.

Monday: We packed up and shipped out. When we first left it was pouring so hard we could barely see 4 cars ahead. It was crazy. It calmed down by the time we got to Wadena, though. The drive home was nice. We stopped at the Albertville Outlet Mall on the way home. Only for me to have a complete melt-down. I should have known better when I took all 13 items into the fitting room at the Old Navy Outlet. Nothing fit right. I cried. I was sad. End of story!

All in all, we had a great time. Other than Graycen's cold, she was wonderful! We had such a nice weekend! Here are some pictures!

Right after we got in the car! The beginning of our road trip.

Graycen knocked out. As if you couldn't tell.

Mommy & Baby.

Her all-time favorite toy, her Baby Leapster Piano. She got so excited when I gave it to her.

Looking at herself in the mirror on the piano.

Checking out Grandpa's beard.

Hanging out with Grandma & Grandpa for a family picture.

Grandma teaching her stuff about the outside and her garden.

"Brushing" her teeth with her NEW toothbrush from Grandma.

Eating a cucumber. Notice placement of the thumb: through the middle of the cucumber.

Testing her own bath water.

Scared someone is going to take her food?????
