This past Saturday, Kristine had a photo shoot in Republic, MO (which is only 10-15 minutes from Springfield) — so we all decided to split the gas and take a road trip. All six of us piled into the car to head out to Springfield for the day. Six? Huh? Yepper, I said all six of us. Kristine, Sydney, Steve, Buster, Parker and I all piled into Kristine’s car. We took the doggies so they could get out for a bit too. (Yes, we know, they’re spoiled rotten). We dropped them off at a doggy daycare facility in Springfield that we used when we used to live there and they’re usually wiped out when we pick them up too. Par-tay. Kudos to my kiddos, they were real troopers all cramped up in their car seat (not to mention the love-hate relationship between Parker and Buster. Lord help us all). Sydney got to sit on her Mommy’s lap most of the way. They (Kristine and Sydney) were our quietest passengers. Smile.
