The wheels on the bus go round and round...

We took a little road trip this week to visit some family that Caitlyn had yet to meet. I really love traveling north where the scenery is hilly and full of trees. The fall colours are just beautiful and it makes me feel so good to be away from big cities and breathing in the fresh north air.

Surprisingly Caitlyn did quite well on the 6 hour drive there and relatively well on the way home. She was so tired on the trip home from a busy couple of days and had no desire at all to stay quietly in her car seat. In the end the last half hour of the trip consisted of me singing the few children's songs that I know she likes over and over and over again. It went something like this:

Wheels on the bus
Ants go marching
Wheels on the bus
Wheels on the bus
Ants go marching
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Ants go marching....

The problem was that most of Caitlyn's favorite songs involve actions that have her lifted up in the air and since we were in the car and that wasn't exactly possible I was stuck with the few songs that didn't have actions. Whatever works right...

On the way there we had a sleeping angel for most of the trip


Caitlyn puts up with all the silly things I do to her quite well. Like leaving a little blanket on her head


and of course what is a family visit without some family pictures
