on the road again

So tonight, we are off to Vermont by way of Ilion. And for this weekend's long car trip, we are bringing the kids, which I expect to be a rather disastrous experience. James is easy, and used to riding in the car, but Evan is a bit less predictable. Evan also has a good ear-splitting shriek. So I'm a little worried. Hopefully he'll sleep a lot, and be content with snacks and toy cars. But with a needy, shrieky baby, you never can tell. Wish us luck.

We'll be going to another wedding this weekend, but probably having considerably less fun than last weekend, thanks to having the kiddos. I mean, kids are obviously fun in their own way, but we haven't yet done a wedding with them. Well, James has been to one wedding, a couple of summers ago, but there we had a set of grandparents as well as an aunt to help keep him entertained and supervised. So we'll see how this goes. And this is actually our last wedding until next year, so even if it goes badly we won't have to do it again anytime soon.

Hmmm... it sounds like I'm complaining there, which I really don't mean to do, because I am looking forward to the weekend. But I'm trying to have realistic expectations -- with children, you learn to expect the worst, and then you're often pleasantly surprised. Hopefully this will be one of those occasions.
