We didn't get to our hotel til 11:30 and I didn't sleep til midnight so my eyes are a little tired!  But excited for the next leg of he journey- don't get to see southern oregon very often.

Text me today and let me know how you all are doing-  I heard you all made it into the talent show!!  Yay!  

Love you all-  mom

Travel journal 5???- Driving

We are driving through some really pretty Californian rural landscapes tonight!  The sun is down and we are trying to keep our eyes open because we still have awhile to go to our hotel!

We had a nice dinner in a tiny farm town called Williams!  I won't lie-  daddy and I had a hard time deciding on where to stop and there may have been some grouchy parents for awhile.

But mostly we were hungry and tired and we have since made up!  I think I'll take over for daddy soon!  

Get some good rest and so your best in your game tomorrow maisie and your beam try outs doodle bug!

Travel journal 3: DMV wait

We landed beautifully and got our really cute rental jeep easily and headed out on the California freeways to Pittsburg, California.

We were starving so we found a subway and enjoyed a good lunch!  

Our momentum and sails were deflated a bit when we got to the dmv however..... There is a 2 1/2 hour wait here and all we need is a little thing called a trip permit.

I brought my book and daddy is making some work calls.  I think I'll stroll next door and buy us some healthy snacks for the rest of our trip soon.  

Other than that we got up at 345 am so I am very sleep!  Missing you all!

Travel journal entry 2: the airport

It's 5am little people!

We are at Capers Cafe at the airport.  For my adult readers I have just ordered the house red - a first for me this early in the morning haha!

Whenever daddy grabs rubys suitcase I laugh cuz it's so girly!  He doesn't seem to care -  don't think anyone looking at him would think him girly so it doesn't bother him:)

We are excited to get to sunny California and eventually to see the new (to us) vehicle-  a 2003 suburban!

Have fun at school and Henry mind your manners for grandma!

Love mom

Travel journal: entry 1



Hey guys,

Tonight we had a wonderful dinner w grandpa at pf changs at the Bridgeport mall.  It was good to sit and catch up!

Then grandpa dropped us off at our hotel near the airport-  it's nothing special-  but there's this cool picture above my bed.  And yep-  I get a queen bed and dad gets his own too.  

Our wake up call is at 345am!!  I'm glad it's early because if I'm sleepy on the plane then I may be able to sleep the trip away!

I'll write more when we get to the airport in the morning!

Love you oodles -  especially worried about you sweet ruby!

Take care of grandma -  she's not used to 4 kids and a Tate!
