Making trips back to PA seems to get harder as the kids get older. The actual traveling is easier, but finding the time is challenging. We took advantage of the long weekend and extra day off school, and made a trip to my in-laws. It was Joshua's first long car ride and he did great.
Matt and I took advantage of being at my in-laws, and went out to dinner and a movie. We went to our favorite local restaurant and then I dragged my husband to see Safe Haven. We had a great time, I just wish we could have date nights more often.
