we made it through ohio and onto michigan, and although i don't have many pictures to share (i forgot to charge my camera battery) but tha'ts okay...i know this trip has been well documented.
it was a little sad dropping kelle and lainey with her dad, as that marked the end of roadtrip 2009 but i knew we had family anxiously awating our arrival, so secured my hat, turned up the radio and listened to more fried chicken and headed north to see daddy, sito, and auntie hi-o!
here are a few pics i snapped in a small town in michigan...or maybe ohio!
kelle said this house is called a painted lady...i love it's charm.
hello...i really want to live in a small town that has a mill. could get over how sweet these streets were. i was looking for kids with lemonade stands and a handpainted sign that said free lemonade and homemade bisquits...it was that kind of quaint little place.
a page from out roadtrip journal...random little thoughts...
a big shoutout to lainey for being the BEST traveler ever. she amazed me and i can't stop talking about it. this little one never made a peep in the car. don't think she cried once, and tried to make her buddy, beckham feel better when he was upset by sharing her snacks with him.
we love you lainey bug.
(a little scaredy in this pic bc her mama was honking the horn...lainey wasn't into it.)
and most improved traveler award goes to...
peyton mae!!! she really pulled it together for our last day.
and my bubby's did well too! he was happy as long as he had a different snack and new movie to watch.
you crack me up.
we had to quickly get dressed and go to celebrate my dad. he is retiring next week after more than 30 years of hardwork. we are so proud of him and he is so deserving of a night dedicated to making him feel good. what a huge accomplishment. my dad IS the hardest working man that i personally know...i'm so happy that after wednesday he can relax and just enjoy his clean slate of a day.
we spent the night with all of our family at a party, my sister, heather, planned for him. it was lovely having my whole family in one room together! very special.
look at my little neice...evie!!!
i couldn't wait to get my hands on her. she's such a little happy peanut...
will post more pics later!
