The third leg of our journey began in the wee hours of Thursday morning. 7 days, 1500 miles, hours of talking and 14 people in a 15 passenger van (with JuneBug's potty chair) we were finally headed home. The long way. Our first stop on the return trip was in Indiana. We were so grateful to be able to stop halfway at the M Family's home.
On the road again!
Catching some ZZZ's they lost somewhere along the way.
Serving up ice cream after supper.
I wonder how they knew Vernon's love ice cream?
After filling their bellies the kids went out to use up some of the pent up energy by playing basketball.
Chatting outside while the sun goes down. (This was the only picture we got
of Mr. M since he left for work the next morning before the cameras were awake. )
Girlies inside having a grand time.
With little ones to bed and older ones being rounded up some of us sat around enjoying the quiet found in the living room. As the night wore on comfy beds were calling our names so we said goodnight.
The next morning the older boys played air soft.
J's first time on roller blades...
Genny's too. At first it was Look! I'm getting pretty good. Then...
Piano in the morning light.
(Most of) The M Family. Thanks for your hospitality!
Next stop- South Carolina! Or wait you mean we're going to....
