Road Trip

The end of July brought all 4 of us together.

In the car.

Away from home.

Overnights.

The last time that happened was in 2004 when we went to South Dakota.   So much has changed since then…  Life on the farm and in the family has changed to the point of making outings nearly impossible.  I am not a very good long-distance traveler this year.    And all of us have jobs that don’t have vacation pay.  All this piled in but we did it!

Everyone got in a day’s work (or partial) and we headed through the big city around 8 p.m.

Phil & I love the kids and love spending time with them.  We cherished all the moments we had with the 4 of us.  (Phil was super glad to have 2 willing drivers!!)

The destination was camp for my side’s family reunion.  We spent more time sitting in the car to get there & back than awake at the reunion.

And back up the hill to do it again!

I got to hold the youngest model.  🙂  We gained 2 wee ones in 2013!  I was glad he was still at the pass-the-baby stage but more like the size & weight of wrestling with a 4-legged cinder block that wants to steal your nose!
