We left at about 7pm on Thursday. Tom drove the whole way, even after working all day. Trevor watched a movie, read some books and finally passed out close to 10. I felt guilty for sleeping when I knew Tom was exhausted too. I think I dozen off for about 30 minutes toward the end. We jumped ahead an hour and arrived around 2 am.
The ride home was great. Trevor tried out his color wonders, watched a new movie and napped a little. We had snacks and I read my book. We got home with plenty of time to start the laundry and rest up before the next day.
The trip was so great and we cant wait to see them again. Trevor and I are booked to head down for the triplets 2nd birthday party in early August. If Tom can get the Sunday off, he will come too. They plan to head North around Trevors birthday. We have some major plans for the future, including a Disney cruise when the kids turn 5.
I am so thankful we took the trip, even with all the other chaos in both of our lives.

Well, turns out life goes on even when you feel it wont. Our month has been full of emotions. Doubt, love, fear, joy, hope, defeat..just to name a few. I'm doing okay..keeping busy is really helping. I vow to stop being defined by our infertility nightmare.
Everyone feels sorry for us. Hell, I feel sorry for us. I'm sad that we have gone through so much and have nothing to show for it. Ill tell you know, no matter what happens for us the next few months and even years..we will be fine. We are fine.
I'm going to catch up here this week, before we head to the cottage for the holiday. Ill start with our anniversary dinner. We went to Ditkas Steakhouse. Yes, as in Mike Ditka, former Bears coach. I searched high and low for the perfect place to dine and thought my die-hard Bears stud would enjoy it. It was expensive, but worth every penny. Seriously, one of the best meals Ive ever had. We left Trevor with my parents and he played with the kids for hours and stayed up way past his bedtime. It was a good night for all. :)
