Our travel plans for the holiday involved visiting my entire family, who live in the Cincinnati and Chicago areas. However, the drive from here to Cincinnati is about 11 hours, and we weren't confident how Elias would do in the car. So we decided to split up the drive by stopping at Justin's parents' house in Western KY. That meant we drove 7 hours the first day and 5 hours the next. It turns out our fears about how Elias would do in the car were unfounded because he did AWESOME, but it was still nice to have a brief stolen evening with Nana & GrandDad!
Elias had some more presents from family to open, and he got some really fun toys to play with! He also really enjoyed one toy that was already at their house. It's a toy for walkers that's meant to be pushed around. However, since Elias can't walk yet, he figured out a new way to play with it! here's a video of how he did it:
Then we got up early the next morning and made it to my parents' house with no problems!
