Henry's first road trip

Over Labor Day weekend, the Shaw family gallivanted to Castle Rock, CO to visit Cousin Ricky. Why didn't someone warn us about taking a four month old on a 26 hour road trip?! But Henry did well...just a few bouts of car seat aggravation and restlessness. The baby piano Aunt Carolina gave Henry was a life saver on our trip home. Wade and I will forever be singing about the "one silly cow, two pink pigs, three fluffy sheep, four kitty cats and five daffy ducks". Sort of reminded me of A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

We had a wonderful time in Castle Rock w/ Cousin Ricky. Ricky – Henry is already looking forward to seeing you again at Christmas! We stopped at Dumas on the way to Colorado, and at Pampa on our drive home. The pit stops were great…just what Henry needed. Everyone was able to stretch their legs and spend more time w/ family.

Fast asleep and on our way to Dumas

I love you, Cousin Ricky
