A Graduation, a Roadtrip and a Set of Twins...

On Memorial Day weekend we loaded the babes up and headed to Oregon for my "little" sister's graduation from Linfield college.  She is one smart cookie, she got a degree in Math and Accounting with a minor in Religion.  She already has a new fancy schmancy job all lined up in Portland that she will be starting on July 11th.  We are all super proud of her!

We decided it would be easier on the babies (and us) if we left Saturday and headed down to shop at the outlet mall in Woodburn, then head over to our hotel where we would play in the pool until it was time for bed for the twins.  O how silly are we...

The Twins did so well the whole car ride, through shopping, loved the pool, but falling asleep in a hotel...not gonna happen.  They whined and stood up in their pack and plays until 9:30 when they caved to their sleepiness.  But that only lasted a couple of hours.  Right around 1:30 Ava decided it was playtime, and since I didn't want to be "that" person I just let her play in our bed in hopes that she wouldn't cry.  She poked us, bit us, crawled around until o 4:30 am.  when she gave out, Landon did the same but started at 3:30.  She wiggled and squirmed from 4:30 until 6 when we needed to get up and head to the graduation.  We were E.X.A.H.A.U.S.T.E.D...Like the newborn days with twins exhausted.  It was a total bust.

Graduation went well and the twins spent it in their Auntie's apartment since it was a little too chilly, once graduation was over they came down and socialized.  After all was said and done, we packed it up and headed home, luckily they slept the whole way home...thank goodness.  Needless to say we probably won't reattempt the whole hotel thing for a little while.

Here are my favorite Pictures from the weekend.

Congrats to your sister- she sounds like a smart cookie! We have a wedding to go to in September and James and I are planning on staying home because i just know that hotel sleep with him is going to be a disaster!

Congrats to your sister!!

Sorry you got no sleep...I wonder if it was a fluke or if you will always have problems with them sleeping away from home?!?!

Have a great weekend!! :)
