Day 1 - Saturday, Sept 10, Drive from Cville to Nags Head, Stopping at Hampton
This is our first trip with our new minivan. Tom packed it the night before and all we had to do was add a few extra things and Tyler and the cats and we were on our way by 9am. It was stressful the day before getting everything packed and Tom did most of the work.
We stopped in Hampton to drop off the cats at my parents house and have lunch. My mom's friends Joan and Anne stopped by to meet Tyler. It was nice to stop there because I could change and feed Tyler at the house instead of a rest area. At a spur of the moment decision, I cooked a sweet potato and fed it to him. He seemed to really like it. It was his first taste of food besides breastmilk.
We made it to the rental house by 5pm, set up Tyler's room and had him down to sleep by 7:30. He napped some in the van but seemed very tired. The house is a bit noisy and he wakes once before sleeping through the night.
