Our latest trip

We spent the long weekend visiting Jane's family in New Jersey - David had a blast most of the weekend. He wasn't so happy on the way down, though - we had stopped for lunch at my parents' house in Connecticut, and hit the road to Jersey a little before 3.

Unfortunately, we hit horrible traffic, starting around Stamford and continuing onwards. It took an hour for us to make it down the Cross-Bronx Expressway (only about 4 miles or so), and the northern reaches of the New Jersey Turnpike were horrible - we didn't get out of the traffic until past Asbury Park on the Garden State Parkway. It took about 6 hours altogether to make a 3-hour drive, and David blew his gasket after about 4 and a half hours. So we had to stop to feed, change, and comfort him. Poor little guy.

Anyhow, the rest of the trip was fine and fun, and he enjoyed himself and charmed all of southern New Jersey. The trip back yesterday was easy, with hardly any traffic. All in all a success - I'll be posting pictures on my site from the trip in a day or so.
