Our trip started around 5:30 AM on Thursday. I planned on Abigail falling right back to sleep for an hour or so, but she didn't. We whisked her away to the car straight from her crib, so she was too excited to sleep. The trip wasn't bad at all, minus heavy rain during the second half of the trip. The nice thing about traveling this time is that we brought our new automatic Ford Escape. I (Diana) could share in the driving duties and Jonathan could share in the Abigail entertainment duties. We arrive in Springfield, VA around 4:00 PM. Most of the day was spent, but we made the most of it spending the rest of the day with some of Jonathan's family. Abigail's Great Grandma and Papa flew in from Illinois for the graduation. This was the first time Abigail got to meet them.
