This summer, we had planned an extensive road trip up to visit my parents in Nevada and Keith's parents in Spokane. When Keith got a new job in July, our plans had to change. I considered making the 48 hour round trip drive by myself, but got too stressed out and shortened our plans to just a trip to Nevada. We were sad to miss seeing everybody in Spokane, but managed to have a fun trip anyway.
Another thing about this trip--the kids absolutely love being told stories, especially when they are trapped in the car for any length of time. On the way in, I told them a couple of stories. But then they discovered that Grammy Jo is a pretty good story teller, and that was it for her. She was finangled into telling stories every time we got in the car to go anywhere. They loved her stories so much, and Sareny even listed that as one of her favorite things about the whole weekend. I will admit that I was pretty entertained by her stories as well. I think she should write them down so we can always remember them.
