On the way up

We drove to Stephenville, TX this weekend to celebrate (Charlton's) Mama's 80th birthday.  Steven did great on the trip up and we were excited to discover that a reasonably long-ish road trip is actually pleasant with Steven...not without a little planning ahead though.  We made the 1 1/2 hour trip to good ole College Station and I had already searched for a fun place for Steven to run off any extra energy he might be saving up.  I found The Bounce- a place full of inflatable houses and slides.  We had never been to one of these before and Steven was in awe of the fun going on in that place.  It only took him an hour to wear himself out.  Then, we met Aunt Lindsay and Uncle Kyle on their lunch break for some good Tex Mex before beginning the last leg (3 hours) of our journey "north."  Steven did fall asleep in the car after lunch (which is what we were hoping) but unfortunately only slept 45 min.  Even still, he was very content to look out the window for "big trucks" and have me read him the bag of library books I got last week.  It included several Dr. Seuss and truck & train books.  That's right, I pulled out all the stops!

I want to go to that place next time. What a fun playground!! Steven every trip should include a side trip like this one. Great pictures of this happy little traveller.
