London – passed out

London – passed out

Posted by in Batten Disease, Kat, Life, London, Road Trip

I’ve been running these kids hard, trying to see a ton of different places. Last night London had a late sandwich and passed out after about 3 bites. He is totally adorable, isn’t he?

Only a few more days in Colorado (which we have packed with plans) then we head out west…. <3

Due to the excessive heat in Colorado we have checked into a hotel for the remainder of our stay. Rachel had the pleasure of sitting in a hottub for a little while, something she really enjoys but doesn’t get to do too often.

Life is good!

We went out to lunch with dear friends at Poor Richards in downtown Colorado Springs. Vegan, gluten free or anything else you could possibly want. It was the best food I’ve had in a very long time!

Day 2 Road Trip

Day 2 Road Trip

Posted by in Life, Road Trip

Yesterday we left Hull Massachusetts and drove through Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West virginia and into Ohio. This morning we’ll be stopping by the Batten Disease Support & Research Association to say hello and meet the staff then will get back on the road and head to Kansas City where we’ll stay in another hotel.

While I was bringing the kids and a load of our stuff into the hotel I met two truckers that are staying across the hall, one of them was born and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts. Small world, right?

Today we’ll drive through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. <3
