The day following the service in Franklin...my mom, dad, Uncle, Mark, Jeff, Claude, myself and Ellison loaded up and headed to Blacksburg, VA. Elic and Connor stayed behind...to be honest we all agreed that an 8+ hour road trip was not in the best interest of a 15 month old. As much as I missed my boys I truly enjoyed having some time with Ellison. Even though the circumstances for going on this trip were not for fun purposes we still had some times that were enjoyable and memorable.
The other thing I want to say is my daughter is AMAZING! During the long drive there and back, meeting lots of people she didn't know, sitting through the visitation/service/reception, getting in and out of the car, waiting in the car, having NO NAPS, going to bed past 8pm EVERY night...Ellison not once fussed, threw a fit or had to be punished because of bad behavior. She was an ANGEL the whole trip...I am so blessed!
The only thing I can say about this picture is what would we do without Uncle GoGo!
