{pretty, happy, funny, real}: Aug. 18

Bear with me.


These pictures are from our road trip back to Virginia from Colorado.

Kansas is on the way.

And, as you may remember, I have a soft spot for Kansas.

Kansas is calm. Kansas is rolling. Kansas is easy. And Kansas is where my pa's from (but we call him Dad). And so, for Dad, I took these Kansas pictures.

And also, I took them for me.

Come on...SUNFLOWERS for the highway signs? That's so cool!

This is solely a memory aid for me...for when I want to know where a large-family friendly hotel is in Topeka, Kansas.

Then Ethan asked, "Why are you taking all these dumb pictures? Hey -- why don't you get a picture of the place where we just got drive-thru coffee?"

And I said, "Why, thank you dear, that's a superb suggestion."

Because we are a TEAM!

And here's a little known thing you can do when you're driving in Kansas. Well, no, technically you can't. So don't ask me how this happened. But it did. Or maybe it didn't. I'm taking no responsibility (or lack of it).

But the next time you're on a very, very long road trip, crank up the volume, shake your graham-cracker encrusted diaper bottom, and see if you don't feel better.

  3. You know, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. And kids gotta move!

  4. I won't lie; the kids dancing on the highway gave me a heart attack here. :P

    Looks like a fun trip! :) We took a similar trek through Kansas last summer. Lots of road!
