Twin Adventures :: Road Trip to San Antonio

This past weekend we packed up the babies and headed to San Antonio! My mom had come into town a few days before for a visit, so she was able to drive to San Antonio with us, and it was so nice to have the extra hands.

Babies' first trip to Buc-ee's!

While it was definitely a lot of work to road trip with babies, they did so well! They didn't sleep very much, so we had some tired babies by the time we made it to San Antonio, but overall they stayed in good moods and did really well on the drive. And it really didn't take us as long as I thought it would. We took our time and made the stops we needed, but babies were {mostly} content in their car seats.

Maddie was a huge fan of "driving" {really, she was just happy to be stretching her legs!}

One of the main reasons for the trip was to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa, of course! So there was definitely lots of play time with them. They stocked up on fun new toys for Eli and Maddie, so there were lots of new things to explore. To say that we took over their house is a slight understatement :)

Another reason for the trip was to introduce Eli and Maddie to their great grandparents. All 4 of my grandparents are still living, and so it was so special for Eli and Maddie to get to meet all of them!

Eli LOVED Lita Grande...seriously, he snuggled up with her and gave her all kinds of love!

Maddie was a little wary of meeting new people, but my grandparents were good sports about it :)

We had a great weekend, and we are so thankful for the time with family. Overall, Eli and Maddie did really well, but we were all glad to be home in our own beds and back into our normal routine. We miss Grandma and Grandpa already, and we look forward to their next visit!
