A Road Trip and Camden's Birthday Party

Brian, Camden and I loaded up the trusty ol' Yukon and began the typically 11 hour trip to Levelland to visit my parents and celebrate Camden's birthday. A few hours into the trip we received several phone calls telling us that we shouldn't come because of the snow and icy conditions that were forming there. After discussing our options we decided to brave the weather and press on. Our planned 11 hour trip quickly turned into a 14 hour trip when the "trusty" ol' Yukon had a hose disconnect from the transmission which left us stranded on the side of the road awaiting a tow into Post where Brian was thankfully able to fix the problem (which came back to haunt us) with my Dad's over the phone help.


We had Camden's second birthday party on Saturday afternoon. We were so thankful that so many of our friends and family braved the cold weather and muddy road out to my parent's house to help us celebrate. Camden had a Yo Gabba Gabba party complete with a custom cake made by my BFF Zak and oodles of decorations and balloons. Camden had a blast!!

Goodness! Sounds like your trip was definitely eventful. Glad you made it (and you have a good story to tell). I LOVE his cake...amazing. We haven't discovered Yo Gabba Gabba yet, but I know it is coming. Hard to believe he is already 2! Too fast! Happy Birthday, Camden
