On the Road Again...

I'd say we're a pretty close-knit family and vacationing with our kids is one of our favorite things to do. When we visit our youngest daughter and her family in Texas, we like to meet them at a cabin and spend a few days. It's a getaway for them and for us. But travelling in the same car posed some challenges on our recent trip with our oldest daughter and husband. We knew we'd be packed in like sardines since we took the Prius, there wasn't a square inch that didn't have luggage or people! 

Since we're family, we tend to like the same attractions and didn't pass up anything good along the way...

You know me, I had my camera ready for any photo op!

Once we got into Cincinnati navigation got a little tricky. We were confused, Tom Tom was completely lost several times and eventually we relied on the map reading skills of our SON-in-law! He did a great job getting us un-lost. 

The rules are different everywhere you go and we tried our best to stay out of trouble.

Some things were harder than others, we are southerners you know!

It's hard to imagine our kids not being "kids." Well... maybe they still are!

    1. That's one of the cardinal rules when you travel, to not make eye contact. Sad, but maybe safer.

  3. It's a good thing you had your son-in-law along so that you could give your attention to the strange signs and he could navigate. I'll have to look for a celery phone the next time I'm at the grocer.

    1. Two words, gas mileage! We made the whole trip, over 1700 miles under $100 in gas. That allowed us to stop for chocolate covered bacon anytime we pleased!!!

    1. I thought so too... wondering just where that "Do not smile at strangers" sign was from?
