~Lucy On My Lap~
Tom and I took our first "Road Trip" to Boise.
It's about a 10 hour drive,
depending on which way you go.
One way it's shorter but
has a lot of snow that covers the mountain passes.
The other way is longer.
It has several mountain passes without a lot of snow.
Our car now has studded tires,
new window wipers and anti-freeze.
We are going to see Kimmy, Mark,
Lulu, Levi and Ila May!!
Car packed with our Christmas packages.
Car packed with my homemade goodies
and famous banana bread.
Car packed with familiar kid toys and books.
Car packed with our dog, Lucy.
Car packed with two, really excited grandparents.
Lots of straight a-ways that go on and on.
We decided to spend the night in Pendleton, Oregon.
We (me) didn't want to drive the curvy roads of
the Oregon mountain passes, after dark.
So, we did a little Christmas shopping
Lucy enjoyed the night all wrapped up on the big bed.
This sign got me really happy!
The excitement was starting to build.
We were welcomed with our own personal signs.
They didn't want us to miss the turn.
How cute is this!
After this picture, I needed to give out hugs and kisses.
So no pictures of the
best welcome I've ever had!
~Their front door~
We felt so special
with a greeting like this!
(more to come)
