My favorite photo from the month of September. My newly married niece walking her 90 year old grandma to the car after a very fun wedding weekend.
I love road trips. They bring me back to when I was little and all 5 of us kids would cram into the Rambler with mom and dad, and drive straight through to Minnesota (16 hours). Mom would pack sandwiches and fruit so we didn’t have to buy expensive gas station snacks. Dad would only let us use the bathroom during gas stops. I can remember the backs of my legs sticking to the seat in the summer heat, and watching rows of corn in Iowa flying by so fast I felt I could be hypnotized by them.
When my niece announced she was getting married in Montana, I was ecstatic to plan a road trip to attend the festivities. My 90 year old mom rode shotgun, while my son had the entire back seat to himself. The dogs got to come along, of course, and they each had a bed in the way back. At each gas stop we stocked up on junk food, as well as Starbucks lattes and macchiatos. We used copious amounts of air conditioning, and stayed in hotels. Times may change, but the fun and memories remain the same.
Please continue around the circle to see what my sweet and talented friend Krista has in store for us this month.
