Girls night... in

Kathleen and I are staying in tonight.

We headed out to pick up some Sonic drinks real quick, and then we went to get a RedBox rental at Walgreens. We rented Pink Panther 2.

I am so happy that Kathleen likes to hang out with me. We always have a good time and great laughs.

Wyoming, You are beautiful

So, we went on the vacation of a lifetime, me and my family.

You should check out my facebook page for ALL the pictures.

Seriously though,

I did mean to update this blog like every night, but then, my computer started acting up, and it became too much of a hassle. So, I just didn't.

But now.

Here are some of my few favorite pictures of this trip.

(Those were in Wy.- I think I should live there someday. Amazingly beautiful.)

We went to so many different states. States that I'd never been too before. Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico, Montana, ummm, see, I am forgetting them all already. But many many states.

We went horseback riding in the mountains. Unbelievably SCARY, but so fun once I stopped shaking We seriously went up a mountain. Jerry, our guide, would say that it ''wasn't straight up, that there are some switchbacks" I didn't really believe Jerry too much. He did get us back safe and sound and we saw some beautiful

It was a long, wonderful vacation. We had such a great time. Ahhhh... so many memories.

I should really sleep now...

Out to the Country I go.... hopefully!

We are sitting here at my grandparents, waiting for my daddy. He is working here today. I think plans have changed so many times to know what is going on anymore. The origonal plans were to head to the country early this morning.
We are going to visit our old neighbors and see our old house.
I hope we can see our friends, and won't run out of time.

I am having a hard time uploading pictures. hahaha.

I'll try to upload more today!

Oh, Sweet William

Check Facebook for the progress :-)

Tonight, I got to hang out with my friend Becca. It was so nice to catch up. We went to Walmart and bought some crazy things! We made Princess Crowns and painted our nails. It was so much fun!

I have missed this girl.

We made it to Wisconsin.

Home Sweet..... Walmart?

Yes. We stayed at a Walmart last night. I think I am the only one who really finds it quite comical. I had never stayed at a Walmart before! Pretty neat stuff... Plus, this morning when we found out that the stove/oven doesn't work... It was pretty convenient to just run right in and buy some bowls to cook with. ;-)

Late last night, we had to stop for gas, yet there were no gas stations for 30 some miles. The generator had shut off because we were running low on gas... the gas light had come on in fact. I actually was getting a tad bit nervous. We finally found a gas station! A little too close for comfort, thank you.

We really didn't want to go to an RV park, since we were only planning on sleeping about 5 hours and then start driving. We thought we'd just stay at a Truck stop, but the three we tried to get into were JAMMMMM packed. So were the rest areas. Finally around 1:15AM, we came across a Walmart, and settled down for a few hours.

Now we are driving through Arkansas. It is so nice to see green :) I am really enjoying this road trip. We are going to get to Kankakee tonight about 9:30 tonight :-)

Gracie is such a great traveler! She is also really cute. She has been sitting up above the cab in Kathleen and my bed. She loves looking out the window!

(I will have to upload pictures later on...)

On the road again..

Hey bloggers!
The great roadtrip has begun! We are north of Dallas I think. We went to Rudy's BBQ for dinner in Waco. Plus, we always try to take some home to my aunt and grandparents. It was pretty yummy. A bit different than the one near us tho, the also had a different sauce too.
It is really noisy. And it's dark. Haha. So far so good tho. Gracie is such a good traveler. Is it possible to be proud of a dog??? She has pretty much slept on the couch all the way so far. Went we went to dinner, she had been laying on a pillow. Silly dog. She Is just glad to be with us. All day while we were packing, she was on our heels. Pretty funny.
I am not sure where we will stop tonight, but I'll have to upload a few pictures. This iphone is pretty nifty tho. Thanks for letting me borrow it K!!!
