My last post was written from a hotel room in Indianapolis. Well, Plainfield, IL to be exact. I can write about this now as the big secret is over. Right now I’m in O’Fallon, MO sitting on the Morrisons couch with Heather and Kasey and 3 laptops. Yup, Saturday night and we’re big dorks all blogging.
Anyhow… why are we here? Well, Heather threw a surprise party for Ryan’s 30th birthday… the big 3-0. We’ve had plans to drive down here for awhile, but I haven’t been able to say anything on the blog.
So, anyhow, thats why Thursday was so stressful. I was trying to wrap up client orders, get things sent to the lab, get packed and get ready to hit the road. We drove 4 hours to Indianapolis and stayed the night at Lee’s Inn (cheap- $60- nothing special, but definitely good for the price). Yesterday we finished our trip and made it here around 3pm. Porter did SO well in the car.
I actually ended up booking three sessions while I’m down here. I had two newborn sessions today and I have another session on Wednesday. Ryan is flying home to MI on Monday evening and Porter and I are staying the rest of the week to visit and for my session. Wish me luck on our drive home… just me and P in the car for 8 long hours. Hopefully he’ll do as well as he did on the way down. I just plan to take lots of breaks, we’ll visit a few different Targets along the highways and stretch our legs LOL.
Anyhow, I didn’t take any party pictures, but Heather did… you can see them HERE. The party was great. All of their friends and neighbors down here are wonderful, friendly and so fun.
Today, Heather came along with me to my sessions in St. Louis, and Kasey met up with us at Mike and Erin’s house for my session with sweet baby Yuri. Afterwards, us three girls met up with the guys and kids at Chick-Fil-A for dinner.
I haven’t taken many pictures, but here are a few from “on the road”. We stopped at a rest stop to change P into his pj’s and he was so excited to see the “Big Trucks”.
