With the roads an icy mess Lynz and I decided to take the train home this year, always an adventure! We were able to get a sleeping car for a fairly reasonable price (I guess!) which definitely made our trip go a little smoother. We got on the train at 5:00PM and awaited our dinner, NOT GREAT! Cold cuts and old potato's, nothing the boys would even consider eating. Good thing our carry on's where loaded with buns, cracker, power bars, and a lot of other treats. It was enough to fill us up for the night.
After rearranging the room and getting everyone in their Jammie's we thought we would put on a movie and tuck in to bed. This is when we found our that the plug in was set back in the wall and our large cord on the DVD player wouldn't fit in the socket, fantastic! The battery was party charged so the little boys where able to watch a little before it died for good.
Bed time went smoother then we expected, AJ was out in minutes as usual, Beckam and Maddox took a little longer but eventually fell asleep and then there's Miles. Sweet, adorable, screaming Miles. This little man is a Hugh fan of his bunk bed. He has never slept anywhere other than his bed or crib since he was a tiny little new born. He HATES if we bring him into bed with us it always ends with him playing, then crying, then screaming until we put him back to sleep in bed. Well as you can imagine we did not bring his bed with us on the train and after everyone else was asleep I had to take him out so that his screaming didn't wake them up.
Out in the hall the lights are always on and you are right next to every ones doors. Little Miles was a mess, he wanted to sleep but there was no where to put him and we could go back into the room until he was asleep or he would wake all the other kids up. So there we stood for an hour and a half racking back and forth me crying him screaming and random people coming out to see if he had broken an arm or something because it sounded that bad. Lynz kept checking on me but there wasn't much she could do, he wouldn't go to her to he just stayed in my arms flipin' his lid. I also got motion sickness and had the fun experience of getting sick with miles in my arms, awesome! He did eventually fall asleep around 12:30 and we all slept until 6:00AM.
Lynz slept by Becks with he bum hanging of the bed, I slept between Miles and Maddox on a bed that was only five feet long and the boys all snoozed in beds that fit them just fine. WHAT A FUN LITTLE TRIP! I like to think that it is all for the memories, because honestly I will never forget that night! Good thing I had Lynz to share it with being together makes all the difference!
Here I am keeping Miles locked in and quiet with a movie on the Ipod
The next day went great, we had breakfast in the dinning car and played in our room until arriving in Shelby. We were so excited to see Lynn waiting for us with Pizza Hut pizza and home made chocolates. Love you Lynn!!!!
