COUSINS - do we really have to be so far away!

My SISTER - My INSPIRATION: Whenever I have moms complain that their children are hard, I just think of my sister who is graciously and patiently mothering a child with severe cerebral palsy. She is one of the best moms I know, and she makes me understand more what being a mom is all about. Thank you Sis!
Somehow I convinced Boyce to take a 13 hour "detour" to Boise to visit some of my family. It was the first leg of the trip to Ohio. They wore us out, but it was worth every single mile and outrageous cost in gas. The next stop was Laramie, WY to see more family (smaller and cuter cousins). After that, we stopped in Kansas City to see more family and cousins and to play some cool car/ball game. We don't have pics of the rest of the trip because I think we were just too tired to get out the camera. 45 hours later we made it to our new home! Don't recommend that road trip to anyone. Uggh!

Wow you really did pack a lot of things into one long road trip! But better to tack on a little extra time and gas onto the road than having to do that again any time soon! Our road trip was long and costly too, but at least we made it in one piece!

WOW! I did not realize how big Brandilyn and JoDee have gotten. It's been forever since I've seen everyone. All I can say is WOW!
