The Trip

After loading about 2/3 of the photos I realized I should have just made this post a slide show because there are so many pictures, but I wasn't about to erase all my uploaded work. So, here's a long post!

After Christmas we set out on a road trip. We first drove 13 hours to Kentucky and stayed a day with Darren's family. Then we drove 14 hours to Minnesota and stayed with my brother Jerry for New Year's. My other Brother Stewart and his family came as well. We then drove 14 hours back to Kentucky and then 12 back to Virginia for a grand total of: 53+ hours in the car. It was so good seeing family, but it was soooooo good getting out of the van too!

Then Jerry and Jen were kind enough to take us to Great Wolf Lodge for a couple days. It was AWESOME!!! The kids had so much fun! It's this huge indoor water park. It's fun to be swimming inside and look out and see snow! I'll post more pics from this place later when I get them!

The last pic I love, a thumb war under the Creation of Man painting. Was that planned?
