Thank goodness for portable DVD players.

We are back! Had a great whirlwind of a time in Hotlanta. Our start to the trip was a bit rough though. Little monkey peed all over his shirt while trying to do a last minute potty break so we had to change clothes right off. I got into the car and started the DVD system up only it did not work!! Our Target was not going to be open for at least a couple of hours so we had to drive 2 1/2 hours (to the first Target on the way) with no entertainment. They did pretty well though. I will tell you I do not know how our parents traveled without those nifty portable DVD players!!
Both monkeys were so excited and started squealing when we got close to my parents' house. It was very cute. They were spoiled the entire time and I let it happen. It will take a week to get them back to normal.

I went walking with my mom and her fellow breast cancer walkers. It was a nice 6 mile walk. It is always interesting to hear what a bunch of 50 something women are talking about. Sometimes it can get quite embarrassing to me, they hold nothing back. I will have to say that even though I run often and 6 miles walking barely made me break a sweat, I am still sore today in places I have not been sore for a long time. It makes me nervous for the actual 30 mile walk.

The monkeys and I loaded up on clothes. My monkeys have got a TON of clothes and I love it!! Mostly thanks to my mom and dad. I got some great clothes too. My mom has a bad habit of buying without trying on and sometimes I luck out and it fits me. So since she hates taking things back, I hit the jackpot!

Here are a couple of pictures of the monkeys doing things I would never let them do at home..

Just look at the popcorn on the floor! Do you know how hard it was not to vacuum the entire place?!?!

My parents are talking about coming to visit in a couple of weeks. That would be great considering we miss them already. Little monkey cried off and on for his Granddad and Gigi the entire ride home.

Thanks for the comment!
We don't do any trips longer than 30 minutes without movies. The player that is installed in our van broke a couple of days before we were going on vacation and we had to find portable ones fast. I couldn't make it without them.
