Road trip 2008

So, this summer, Nathan and Melinda convinced me to take a 34? hour road trip with them from our house to grandma and grandpa's house.  We got to see their new house, play DS and try to keep each other awake.  We crossed many state borders (and missed a few signs.) We had a really good time though and all the kids did great.  However, since the trip my kids now ask anytime we drive somewhere if it is a long trip like going to grandma's house or a short trip!

On our trip we visited Great Grandma and Grandpa Huckstep, who were on a volunteer mission for a camp not too far from my parent's cabin.  I would still like to claim that my grandparents are the cutest ever!  The last couple of times we have gone home, they have been gone, so it was fun to see them, have grandma fix some yummy homemade ice cream, have grandpa take the kids for a ride and of course get a new toy from Grandpa's 'toy shop.'  We played at a lake, went waterskiing and even met Corinne's boyfriend, Alex.  We also got to be there for Chris and Kristal's baby blessing and my girls had a lot of fun meeting their newest cousin, Rylee.
