First Road Trip

We embarked on our first road trip with Ella this weekend.  We packed up the family and headed to Lincoln for a wedding.  We timed it so we left right after Ella ate. 

She did so well! She slept for about 3.5 hours until we got to Ogallala to eat dinner.  She slept until we got to Grand Island and then the rest of the way to Lincoln.  The rest of the morning wasn’t so great, but hey, it was a nice car ride.

Friday Josh’s sister Amber brought her daughters to Lincoln for a visit.  Ella got to meet Ximena who is 10 days younger and her cousins Hanila and Maya.

A little change from the last time we saw eachother.  Josh’s grandmother also came over for dinner.  They had made blankets at her nursing home earlier in the day and she was really excited to give one to her new great granddaughter.

Saturday we went to Josh’s friend Brent’s wedding.  It was fun to get together with all of his high school friends. Ella was the belle of the ball and a complete angel.  She was great during the ceremony and slept through the first several hours of the reception.  Even when she was awake she was in a great mood, loving being held by everyone.  Of course I failed to take an pictures. That night I was treated to a 4.5 hour stretch of sleep. It was amazing!

Sunday morning we packed up the car and headed home.  She was great on this trip as well. Pumping in the car is so helpful!  Otherwise I don’t think I’d be able to get through a 7 hour drive with her sleeping for so long.  She also treated me to a 5 hour stretch of sleep last night. Yeay!  I think she’s starting to understand nighttime is for sleeping.
