On the road and memories....

Sears tower? Chicago (can anyone let me know for sure)


Didn't expect to be this much traffic on a Saturday...Yuck
Well here we are travelling down the highway to St.Paul/Minneapolis.  Poor Dylan has been sick for the last three days.  He had a bad fever the night before we left and hasn't been able to keep any food down since.  Hopefully he will sleep for a while since he is the one who wanted to see the Mall of America, of course so did we.  He really wants to feel better because we also have the Segway trip tomorrow already bought through Groupon.  We stayed last night in a Coast to Coast park in Wisconsin Dells called Christmas Tree Village.  It is the same place we stayed last summer when on our Yellowstone trip with the Lawheads.  It is a really nice park and I was looking forward to the huge hot tub, but just within 5 miles of the park we hit a bump and the scooter (a 450cc Bergman..big one)came off the hitch again.  NOT as bad as when the whole hitch broke on our way to Myrtle Beach last fall...that was horrible,  but enough for the whole evening to be spent by Dusty taking the whole thing off and figuring out how to keep things together til we get to CA.  Dylan spent the evening in the restroom and therefore I didn't want to leave the "men" alone so missed the hot tub time  :(  
 But since they weren't having fun didn't think I better either.  We were all very tired after such a hectic two weeks and feel asleep early.
I wanted to also share with you some memories from a night before we left.  Poor Scott Satison has been taking a lot of ribbing from all of us at the campground, so we wanted to give him a little gift.  Angel and Derek and I got together and put together a couple pressies for him and also for Lois.  We gave Scott his presents first...which made Lois very apprehensive about opening hers!!  Now since this is a family blog I cannot go into detail on Scott's present but if you are from Indian Springs you just might want to ask Scott what it was......and Lois's you have probably seen her wear by now.  Jacob was so excited when he found the Angry Birds T-Shirts and had to get one for him and Lois.  Lois became obsessed with the IPad that Tommy and Christie McCart have and playing Angry Birds on it that Jerry says she has totally forgot him...don't think so Jerry...but that maybe true after she gets her own IPad which maybe today I think since she won enough money at Firekeepers the other night to go buy one.  She was so excited on Friday night when we were at the Garrett American Legion for broasted chicken.  She is having Christie go with her to help her buy everything she will need...have fun Lois and don't forget Jerry...LOL

Hey Scott what do you think it is??????

Jerry wants a better look...really that small??????

Lois wonders what's in her box?

Come on Scott show us

Yep.. Gotcha!!!See I'm not even there and and I can still make you blush!!!

Lois opens her she feels better, was nervous after Scott opened his

Oh Yeah a shirt to wear while playing Angry Birds!!
Looks great on you Lois and matches your blue eyes..

Great picture of Aron...

Also last week an amazing thing happened!!!  For his whole life Eric our grandson has wanted a puppy.  Every year it was at the top of his list for the NO.1 thing he wanted for Christmas but his mom never wanted a pet.   but she goes to deliver a van to a couple in Ohio and what happens but the cutest most adorable puppy comes running out and today Brutus resides at their house.  He is so cute that if he would have had a brother or sister it would be travelling down the road with us today.  In fact when Eric brought him up for us to see before we left I didn't want to let him go and Christie wanted to buy him and that would have been 3 dogs for her and Tommy to fly back to CA!!!  Just look for yourself how sweet he is and you can see why we all wanted him...Traci had to text Eric to bring that dog home before grandma kept him!!!  But at least I will have visiting privileges!!
Another grandson....Brutus..adorable!
Traci & Brutus

Can't I keep him????NO says Traci.....
