Our trip to NY: A photo montage

We left the house on a Wednesday night. The van was packed tightly. When Matt had a major diaper blowout just 45 minutes after starting our journey, there was no where to change him but the front seat!

After driving 5 hours, we stopped for the night at a hotel. Luke is in an "I love showers" stage, so he felt compelled to test out the hotel shower. It was great!

Will and Matt waited patiently while we packed up the van again the next morning, to complete the remainder of our journey to Grammy and Papa's house.

Luke literally fell asleep with chicken nuggets in his hand. I could not resist the photo op. Do not judge me for feeding him Wendy's!

Will and Nate enjoy an absolutely gorgeous afternoon on the deck at Grammy and Papa's. The temperature and view were perfect!

Will really enjoyed the summer temperatures in New York. When we arrived, it was in the high 70s. We got to take in the ending of Cousin Joe's lacrosse game.

Luke stretched his legs after a long journey to NY by running around on the lacrosse field after the game, emulating his hero (Daddy!).

Luke and Will slept like champs during our trip.

Matt and Papa enjoy a pool-side chat, discussing the upcoming Syracuse basketball season.

Will and Nate in the pool. Gosh, this kid loves the water!

On the way home, we stopped halfway to spend the night with our Wyman cousins in Virginia. Here, Will and Cousin Brogan enjoy a silly book.

Nate, Luke and Cousin Cal spent some time with their lacrosse gear.

The cousins! We drove the rest of the way home to NC shortly after this picture was taken. What a trip! We had a lot of fun, but were certainly happy to be home!
