On Friday Greg celebrated his 30th birthday and his 1st birthday as a daddy. We had a special breakfast with eggs, sausage and a donut, which was a welcomed departure from his Fiber One Pop Tarts, and I baked him some delish cupcakes to take to work. Kennedy, Olive and I gave him a new dart board and darting accoutrements, and a Longhorn for his car. We also left Friday evening to go to Midland to celebrate with his family and friends.

We had all of his friends over to the Hunter's house for dinner and drinks (and much football). Kennedy got to meet all of Greg's friends on Saturday and a lot of the Hunter's friends today at church. It was so fun to hang out with everyone and we are looking forward to seeing them all again at Christmas.

In addition to celebrating Greg's birthday, we also wanted to drive to Midland this weekend to see how it might be to drive over Christmas. We keep going back and forth - driving or flying. The road trip was a success - on Friday evening I fed Kennedy and went through our normal night time routine. Greg picked up snacks and drinks and packed the car. We were so surprised and relieved that she slept the entire way from Dallas to Midland with out a peep. The way back was just as smooth and we decided that car trips with Kennedy (and Olive) are pretty easy. We made great time in both directions and didn't have any traffic, bad weather or baby meltdowns.

So, the Christmas travel verdict: flying. While 5 hours and 30 minutes could be considered "making great time" between Midland and Dallas, it was about 5 hours and 15 minutes too long in the car for me.
