Two Saturdays ago, Nick and I basically had to wake up Millie so we could leave for our trip. We were heading to Meridian, MS to drop Millie with his parents.
Nick and I were going on vacation alone! This was my fist time to be Millie-less for more than 3 hours since her birth.
Leading up to the trip we kept wondering if she would be ok without us for 3 days. Then Nick would say, "well if she cries, we won't hear it." Might sound a little harsh, but it was the truth. Dropping her off wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I was ready to relax with my toes in the sand and a book and a beer without chasing Millie or cleaning up her spilled milk.
The drive from Meridian to Fort Morgan mostly looked like this. A lot of road with nowhere to stop.
And if you are worrying about how Millie was doing, we got several picture messages. I don't think she missed us.
The view at dinner one night. I enjoyed some good fried oysters.
We also saw a small red fox run through the parking lot.
My mom told me about a new drink. White wine and fresca with strawberries, lemons, and limes.It was delicious! It also cuts calories and stays cold longer than white wine alone. Just make sure the fresca is cold. We added in a few ice cubes because we were sitting outside. You could also freeze the strawberries.
I didn't take any before pictures. They weren't pretty. It took Nick one day to cut down all the vines and trees. But here are some partly finished pictures.
We thoroughly enjoyed our entire vacation. We made it home on Memorial Day. It was so hot, I wanted to jump in the pool before the car was unloaded. Nick made me unload the car first.
I hope you had a good Memorial Day, and I hope the start of your summer has been cool and enjoyable.
Now we are preparing for Millie's 1st birthday party!
