May 24, 2009 - May 30, 2009
Our trip to New York actually began the night before we left when we took our babies over to Nanny and Poppy's house. We had left them for two nights a couple months ago, but the thought of leaving them for a week left us feeling funny inside. We knew they'd be loved and cared for, but still... After lots of hugs and kisses, we put them in bed and said good night. Then we went home to catch a few hours sleep before leaving in time to catch our 6:30 am flight.
Getting up at 3:30 for most reasons leaves me focused on only one thing: getting back to sleep. But getting up at 3:30 to travel fills me with anticipation and (thank goodness) adrenaline. Most people were still asleep in their warm, familiar beds waiting for a normal day to begin. But we were loading bags in the car, eating hastily, and heading off into an adventure!
