Hi friends ,my goodness but it is a beautiful day here in the bluegrass state. The sun is shining and the temps are really nice and comfortable.
My nephew had decided to move to Texas about 5 weeks ago and for a while it was fine ,then he became homesick .Friday my hubby and I were working in my craft room ,when my BIL called and asked hubby if he would go to Texas with him to pick up my nephew .Hubby agreed and a short time later it was decided that hubby and I would make the trip. My BIL is not in the best of health.This was going to be a drive straight there and back trip as my husband had to be home for work on Monday. We googled too find directions and a time line it said that it was a 13 hour trip.Okay no problem we can do that with a break or two planned in the schedule.Boy was the internet wrong!It turned out to be an 18 1/2 hour trip making it 37 hours round trip.We left our home Friday at 6:30 pm and basically did not stop driving until we returned home on Sunday around noon. Exhausted does not cover how we felt ,LOL! My hubby had to do all the driving ,poor man. My nephew has had it explained that if he should decide to move away again ,that he better pick someplace closer to home .That this aunt and uncle team was not making this a habit.Move that far again and you are on your own.Do you think he bought it ? LOL!
Here are a few pics that I took while we were driving ,so they are not the best.Texas is a big open place but it is having an extreme drought.I was shocked by how dry things were there. While we were there, my SIL drove up and we did get to have dinner with her.It was a real treat to see her and it made the drive worth it for hubby to be able to see his sister.
While it was an exhausting trip it was fun .It may have been our first time in Texas but it is not the last .We are planning on returning when we can have a more leisurely time and take Gretchen.She was in quite a snit when we got home.Have a wonderful week friends.Hugs,Jen
