This summer our road trip has taken us across the mountains to Grandma’s house as they often do and so far it’s been a lovely trip.  Things just seem easier this time.  Maybe it’s because they’re older now – there’s no more lugging around playpens and diaper bags and strollers.  We’re past all the ‘gear […]
