Warning! This post is long. Read at your own risk.So Washington was great! We had lots of fun with my family, had a cool baby shower for Kaylee and held an adorable little baby, and we also bought a car!!! Pretty exciting, huh? We bought one way flights to get there and we're just planning on renting a car to drive back (because I got Cody a punching bag for Christmas, and that probably wouldn't fit too well in our luggage) but we decided to look at a few dealerships to see what we found. We almost bought a grandma looking car because it was a really good deal, but thank goodness we didn't! It's actually a long and boring story so I'm not going to tell it. But it's a Ford Fusion 2007, manual transmission (and no, I didn't know how to drive a manual when we decided to buy it). And we love it! It's definitely the fanciest car either of us have ever had! Cody taught me how to drive that night (Monday) and I actually caught on pretty quickly! We love love love it!
As far as the driving on this trip... not so great. We left my Mom's house around 7:30am, but we stopped at Fred Meyer for a few essentials on the road and we were off.
While waiting for the new GPS to load, the old one managed to get us lost AGAIN! It told us to take this random, out in the middle of no where exit and was seriously taking us to no-mans land. So after about half an hour of that, we were back on the freeway, and our new GPS was CLOSE to downloading.. But it completely drained Cody's phone battery and we didn't have a car charger with us. So we had to look for a well known store that would have a car phone charger. Making that stop took longer than we thought because we had to take Dexter out to go to the bathroom, go back into another store to get towels to dry Dex off, and then we finally left.
|He was so cuddly after I dried him off! He slept like this for about an hour (:|
We finally got to the Best Western, checked in, and brought all of our luggage inside.
|He's so silly.. sits in the weirdest positions/places!|
|The center console (which we didn't have in our other car) is Dexter's official seat, apparently. He was either sitting here, or sleeping on my lap for the entire drive!|
|He was falling asleep sitting up on the center console, kept leaning a ton and bobbing his head, and ended up with his butt still on the center console and his head on my leg. What a cutie!|
|I was eating twizzlers, and I was curious to see if they could be crocheted! They can!|
