It started to seem like we were going forever but now we are finally here. The last 420 miles flew by and we were in town by 2:30pm. I am trying not to think about all the miles yet to go on the way home. Maybe I'll just stay here. Oh, I have added a bunch of photos taken along the way so look at my previous posts to see updates. I am having a lot of fun taking photos and will continue to post any good ones!
Here is a shot at almost 10:00pm outside our hotel in Nebraska, I couldn't believe it was still light out.

We are just outside of Iowa City, Iowa. We traveled a little late because there were no hotels to be found when we were ready to stop. It was worth the extra time driving because we found a really good hotel and the restaurant was amazing. There is NOTHING like good food, Ahhh...
When we arrived in Iowa Leif asked about the famous Iowa Potato. We had never heard that one! Mom had one for dinner though, and said it was good.
Oh and don't believe Mom when she says I needed to stop more than her, it is not true, you know how she is always making things up!
Onward tomorrow through the rest of Iowa and into the great state of Nebraska!

Here is a self-portrait of L's. We are taking pictures of him in every state this one is from Pennsylania (we know because his foot is in the pic). We were only in Penn. for a short while and so it is taken while driving. I kinda love it!
We reached our goal a little late today but we did reach it. We are outside of Toledo, OH. We had a little dinner and then swam in the outdoor pool then the indoor pool and then went in the hot tub. My Mom went to bed and then so did L and I am going as soon as I finish this! Onward in the AM. 400 more miles tomorrow!

We had planned to leave early this morning but I was given a tour of some of my Aunt Pat's quilting! She has been quilting for many years and has done some amazing work(picture's to follow). It made me want to finally learn how to quilt, and perhaps with some fabric from my Mom's collection, I will actually do it.

We finally left yesterday and arrived @ my sister's house in CT at about say 10:15PM. It was nice to see her and as always she listened to me blather on about something that was bugging me and then she gave me a tylenol PM and sent me to bed. Good sister! I actually slept well. Mom, L, & I left for Corning NY, and despite many pitstops arrived @ our destination by 5:00PM. Good visit with some relatives, including an Aunt I haven't seen in 21 years. She is now 95 and well I am not 20 anymore, needless to say we had both changed a bit!
L was really loving hanging out with the old folks until my cousin mentioned she had a pool and she lived about 3 minutes away. We headed over and he had a blast (pictures later on). I had a tasty glass of homemade wine that her boyfriend made and a nice visit with her catching up after 20+ years of not really talking to her much. It was pretty cool. I am off to bed, Mom wants to do 400 miles tomorrow and well with all the stops it could take a while.

Enjoying our small but nice dinner outside on Independence Day. It was quiet for the most part until some neighbors started their very elaborate fireworks display which we viewed with some difficulty through our woods. L ran around catching fireflies and then PJ proudly brought out a dumpster find. Some flares for both day and night. He nearly burned off his retinas lighting the flares, man they were bright! Then he lit the daytime flare, it burned of this thick orange smoke which was viewed with a flashlight and made a laser light look like a light saber. Oh, and it smelled spectacularly awful. Good fun!
