Awkward Mom vs. Travel (part 2)

Every once in awhile, the stars align, the angels sing, and we get to kick a big fat I-told-you-so in Awkward Dad's direction. Today is that day.

Well, we are back! And no worse for wear! Well, if I am being honest, I may be 5 pounds heavier due to massive clam dip consumption, but we all make sacrifices for family, right? I want to tell you all about it! About the nearly perfect drive out there, marred only by a slight run-in with a run-away bucket on the highway. (Shh...I haven't told Awkward Dad about that yet) About our magical visit to Marvelous Mom and her minions. About a certain perfect baby who slept nearly the entire trip and still slept through the night when we got there. About how my mother enjoyed the play tent I brought for the children....probably more than the children. About the joyous celebration of Awkward Cousin and her very own Super Fetus. About how expertly four generations of Awkward ladies can simultaneously eat, gossip, and ooh over baby shoes. About the too soon trip home and how Travel's cousin, Nostalgia, controlled the radio the whole way, causing me to lose it and pull over, hugging the Super Kids and instructing them to stop growing this instant. I want to tell you all about it, but I have about 15 loads of laundry to do, it looks like a herd of squirrels had a party in my fridge, and there is other evidence that Awkward Dad spent the weekend alone. Evidence that needs my (and a CSI team's) attention pronto. So, check out these awfully awkward photos from my camera phone and I'll be back as soon as I can!

Just had to stop and take a picture of Super Baby and her dragon friend.

Happy travellers.

After a fruit snack binge.

Awkward Mom is making slow progress on the laundry, but check us out soon; we have tales of errant buckets in the road and awkward grandmas in the tent. Travel's family is almost as large as the Awkward clan, so it was an event! More soon!


  1. Oohhh.. sleeping kids!! Lucky momma!! ;) Super baby is super sweet!!!

    1. I kid you not, they are the best car travellers I know!
      She is kinda sweet, isn't she? Of course, I may be a little biased....
