On New Years eve day we took Landon to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We loaded the car and were on the road by 6:15am. The drive was 3 1/2 hrs, the longest car ride we have ever taken Landon on. (Reminder:The boy hates the car) When we put him to bed his normal routine is to wake at 2am, 4am, 6am for a feeding. I put him to bed at 8pm for the night I finished the laundry and crawled into bed by 1am. He woke up at 1:15 a lil early then normal, good for me as I wasn't alseep yet. Surprisingly he didn't wake up the rest of the night Hallelujah! In the morning Ryan and I stood over his crib saying his name over and over even rubbing his back yet he still didn't wake up. I picked him up and he rubbed his eyes a few times and then he just lighted up. I decided to leave him in his jammies but needed a diaper change before we hit the road.
Landon & I shared a banana before he started to get sleepy around Davis. I climbed from the back seat to the front seat and took my own nap. Thank God I needed it so bad after only 3hrs sleep. Why do I do every time I get ready to go on a trip or vacation I stay up the night before packing or doing laundry. Landon slept the entire trip of 3 1/2 hrs. Thank goodness. While we were at the aquarium he took a nap in the stroller for an hour and then slept another 3 1/2 hrs on the way home. I'll post the pics in another posting later.
Were off to a Happy New Year. My goal is to get my body back by June 5th. Its tri-training season so I will start my diet and core strengthening this month. My schedule will be super busy training 6 days a week. Tues Evenings is training with my coach, Wed is Bootcamp, the rest of the days will running. My mother in law bought me a B.O.B. stroller for Christmas so there are no excuse I will be able to run daily.
