Some of my readers and some people I read may have noticed I’ve not been online hardly at all these past ten days. Here is why.
I’ve been on a Summer Road Trip.
Two Thursdays ago we headed down to the Ozarks. There we picked up my eldest brother and drove to Maryland. (Lots of driving is unsurprisingly an important part of a summer road trip) Once there we discovered that there had been a tornado the night we were driving, but thankfully the wedding was still on.
We spent the weekend exploring the park, scrambling over downed trees, (this was a difficult hike “an important part of a summer road trip) helping out, and enjoying friends.
On Sunday we went to my oldest brother’s Oldest Brother In Law’s house and spent the night.
On Monday we drove up to see a very dear old friend of the family. (spending time with friends and family, very important to a summer road trip) After lunch and catching up we finished driving to P’s house. There it was decided that R should go back and take care of his kids, because his wife was sick, sicker, and pregnant.
Tuesday was spent doing chores (Another of the most important parts of a summer road trip) I did four loads of laundry.
Wednesday we went to Letchworth State Park (The Number One State Park In America)
On Thursday, again with chores. In the afternoon a friend of P’s came over and we went to a park. While at that park, we went on a fairy house trail, which inspired me to write in my journal for the first time in over six months.
On Friday we drove to Niagara Falls
Then we continued on to Grand Rapids. And I went swimming in my new swimsuit for the first time.
Saturday we helped get the reception area ready, (helping out is yet another important part of a summer road trip) then after lunch was my youngest older cousin’s wedding. (On Mom’s side). We also helped clean up.
Sunday after church, we went swimming again. Then had a confusing bunch of groups wandering around.
Monday we drove home. Summer road trips can honestly come at any time of year, but they are most often done in summer. I plan on posting more pictures of the trip to my Instagram. Link should be on the right.
