A Real Road Trip!

Last weekend we went down to Modesto CA, for Cam's sister's engagement party, which means we FINALLY got to go on a REAL ADVENTURE! We mentioned to Cam's family that we were going, and they decided to hop on so it became a whole-family party. Of course, since Wes' still doesn't have much patience with the car seat, we had to roll it Wes-style:

  1. Frequent strategically planned stops
  2. Driving as much as possible while Wes is sleeping
  3. Getting warm water at gas stations for bottles, or, if that's not possible, at least using a water bottle that was in a sunny window. 

We left just before Wes' nap at one-thirty. Actually, Instead of writing about this I'm just going to draw you a picture:
The hotel stop turned out to be an awesome idea, because we we'll all pretty exhausted. Of course, Cam, Wes, and Cam's whole family are early people... which means that by the time I got up and walked to the dining room I passed this.

We got to Modesto and spent the rest of the day helping to decorate for Kaylie's Party. Here's a sneak preview of the reception that will happen in a couple weeks (and an the reason my hands have been orange for some time now):

Wes thought the fountain was the coolest thing that ever happened:

And the invitation that I'm quite proud of:

 And then of course we woke up the next morning and it was time to head home (start from the bottom this time):
What? You've never heard of an engine-block BBQ? Neither had Cam's Family. We like to keep people on their toes.
