We left super early Monday AM. After Christmas at Renae's on Sunday afternoon, we came back home, packed and headed to a hotel by the airport, so we wouldn't have to leave at 2am from our house! I was nervous to travel with Mac. I just didn't know how he would do and if you know Mac, if he isn't happy, he REALLY isn't happy!

Wednesday, we met the Borns on the Gulf side and went on an airboat ride. It was really neat, but it was COLD! I feel somewhat bad saying that since it was SUPER cold back home but cold is relative. After that we had lunch and then headed to the Gopher Pep Rally and Social. To say these events were packed is grossly understated. Holy Gopher apparel convention! It was fun to see, though. We rang in the new year in our hotel room. I even made it to midnight, which Jim was betting I wouldn't. (to be fair, I think I was sleeping by 12:03)

Friday we headed home. After the flight (direct this time!), the guy sitting next to me gave Mac an A+ for behavior! He did really well, all things considered. I wasn't sure how he would sleep in the hotel room while we were there, but he did great. We opted to have him sleep in his car seat rather than a pack-n-play, which I think he really liked. Overall, a great trip with lots of memories.
A HUGE thank you for Memere for watching the Bigs. I know they had a great time and by all accounts told to me, they were very well behaved. I'm hoping next Christmas and break have much less going on (no flu and no travels!).
