Our second day on the road was fairly uneventful except for the smell of cows! I have seen more cows than I have ever wanted. The good news is that Russ and I can calculate very well how much gas we have left in the tank. <sigh> The weather has been beautiful and the kids are doing exceptional. We stayed a day in Iowa at Russ' parents house to relax. It was a GREAT day filled with the kids riding the golf cart (aka Gator), fishing and of course I had to get in a little shopping. Life is good.
Fishing is not my idea of fun. I never liked it as a kid and nothing has changed today. Mostly because I am extremely impatient. I also do not like putting a live WORM on a hook. It's nasty and I feel like I am hurting the worm. I know, silly!
The kids on the other hand love to fish. Anything outdoors they are game. Alexis still holds a fishing pole with a little fashion:
Brandon had dirt from head to toe at the end of the day. You can tell from his picture that he is just happy to be out of the car and not stranded on the side of the road!
…and then there is Russ! This pic speaks volumes! This is why I love this crazy guy! We have laughed at each other over and over again!
You might be wondering if we caught a fish… the answer would be NO! Russ scared them all off.
We are actually sitting in West Virginia tonight. The last leg of our trip is tomorrow. It will take about 5 hours. Thank you to each of you for sharing your fun stories with me. Russ and I have enjoyed them and laughed together. While moving is never easy it's been much easier when I can share it with you.
While I've been on the road my little brother had a birthday. Here is a card I made for him. It's not in the mail yet but will be in just a few short days. 🙂 He's also in the Navy so I thought this would be a fun card done in Red, White and Blue. The stamp set comes from the Level 3 Hostess set called Playful Pieces. WOW this is a great set. There are tons of pieces in it.
I stamped each of these boxes in Craft ink onto Crumb Cake. I really love Craft ink and love it even more on Crumb Cake. I cut each image out and popped them up with dimensionals. It's a super easy card including the cutting.
I hope your weekend is fantastic! Again, many thanks to each of you for your continued prayers, thoughts and laughs. If you only knew what it does to a girl's spirit. <wink>
