Alex loves milk!  Every time we take the jug out of the fridge she flaps her arms and begs for some!

Car Games

My biggest concern about the camping trip was how the girls would handle the 5.5 hour road trip.  I shouldn't have worried...about an hour out of the city:
Caitlyn:  Let's play Hide & Seek.  I will hide, and you will count!

Mama:  Sure he can!
