How We Survived Our Trip


It was a long drive and I didn’t know how we were ever going to make it that far with Sam crying.  Here’s some of what we did.        We made some scratch ornaments and hung them up.IMG_6470

We sat peacefully.IMG_6471                                                                             We played with pipe cleaners.IMG_6472

We stopped a lot and climbed on anything that could be climbed on. IMG_6478

We watched movies and ate snacks. IMG_6480 IMG_6481

We had an unexpected stop when I found water leaking onto my feet and we thought it was the radiator but (Praise God) it was only the air conditioner.


And then we arrived at our first stop:  Moose Trail Lodge, where we stayed with Bob and Judy Drinkall, friends  of my family from Wisconsin.  The kids were overjoyed to get out of the car.  And I mean overjoyed! IMG_6531

The next day was Sunday and we visited Wheaton E. Free Church again.  It was so good to see old friends.  After church, we went out for lunch and then visited Sunnyside Park.  We spent many happy days there when we lived in Wheaton.


It was just like we left it.  IMG_6512IMG_6495 IMG_6500 IMG_6502 IMG_6503 IMG_6506

When we got home, Judy had made pie and cheesecake for Daniel’s birthday.IMG_6520  IMG_6517

It was a great day.



And that was only the beginning. IMG_6548 IMG_6555
