Voting Day

So we packed the triplets into the car at 6:30am, as usual, but instead of heading over to Nana and Pop Pop's house, we went with Erin to the polls to vote. The girls were still in their pjs (Arthur had taken off his diaper in the middle of the night, and needed to be changed), but we were all excited to participate in the voting process. It took about an hour though to get through the lines, and the kids were great except for the final 10 minutes (we had forgotten to bring toys or snacks). So we carried each of them into the voting booth (Coraline was held by a friend), and Arthur even enjoyed pushing the big "vote" button on the touch-screen.

Afterwards we saved our "I Voted" stickers and enjoyed a dinner of free Chick-fil-A sandwiches and Ben and Jerry's ice cream, while awaiting the results at Nana and Pop Pop's house. Coraline though, couldn't sleep, and so she stayed up monitoring the results to see which way Virginia would vote.
