We took a very long road trip with two potty training toddlers from Palmdale, CA to Phoenix, AZ. It was a good 6 hours, with several stops on the side of the road. We went to be a part of our neice, the girls' cousin, Amanda's baptism. All of Darin's family were there and we had a good time. Amanda is such a sweet, loving girl and is eager to learn! We also took the time, while we were all together, celebrate my mother-in-law's upcoming 60th birthday. We planned an Italian themed surprise party for her (it's easy to plan a surprise party when you are a month early!) It was a lot of fun to plan and everyone had a great time. The girls love spending time with their cousins and had a ball. They especially liked that Aunt Jen brought her new pug puppy, Max.
