For Alyssa's First Easter we headed on a road trip to Estevan Saskatchewan. That is were Travis' Grandparents and a good many of his other relatives live. The drive normally takes around 8-9 hours but with a very active and busy 10 month old it took a couple extra hours. When we stopped I made sure that our little busy bee had plenty of time and space to walk around so that she could get tired and have a little sleep once back in the van.
Alyssa was a trooper, she did extreamly well for all those hours she was couped up. But of course a big trip and a new environment had her out of her normal routine. Our Aly who is usually in bed by 7pm and angry if she isn't was a total party animal! The Friday we arrived she stayed up until 12:30am! AND was still trying to play peek-a-boo with Travis and I while we tried to calm her down and get her to sleep. Saturday she was cooperative and went to bed not too long after 8pm but then Easter Sunday she decided she had to stay up late again and didn't get to sleep until after 10pm. Mommy was exhausted!
We all had a very nice time visiting will all of the relatives and celebrating Alyssa's First Easter and Great Grandpa Jake (90 at the end of this month) and Great Grandma Clara's (85 in May) birthdays.
