Insta #MayberryRoadTrip

August 14, 2014

We headed out last Thursday morning with an extensive itinerary. My stretch goal was to be on the road by 7:00 am, putting us in Auburn around 11:00 for lunch with my friend AnnMarie and her daughter Hannah, though my drop-dead pull out time was 8:00 am. We pulled out of the driveway at 7:08, […]

Day 5: Wednesday Unlike the other days, Wednesday started out slow. Instead of rushing off to “do stuff” I kept the kids at Mickey Manor and put Nathan down for an early nap. My friend AnnMarie and her daughter Haley, who are from Massachusetts, were coming into town to spend a few days at Walt […]

Mayberry Road Trip: Day Two

Day 2: Sunday Although we didn’t go to bed until around 1am, Sarah Kate set the alarm on her watch to wake up in time to watch the women’s Olympic marathon on Sunday morning at 6am. I got up with her and we settled in on the couch where she promptly fell back asleep (of […]

Mayberry Road Trip: Day One

August 6, 2012

You could say it’s a little uncharacteristic of me to take off on a spontaneous road trip with the kids. You could also say that the Pope is a little bit Catholic. But Mayberry’s 9-10 year old all-stars made the World Series so I decided to take the kids. No plan and no idea when […]
