Oddities from the Journey...

Emily and I encountered quite a few strange things/people on our trip. We took pics of a few. One of them is actually just corn in the back of a truck, but we had never seen corn transported this way, so... we're geeks:). The construction guy/kid is sitting at the end of an exit ramp and there is no construction for MILES. He is sitting there by himself, in flipflops. Huh? The sign is from our hotel room in Grand Portage MN - which by the way, one of the tour guides there thought we had Australian accents. Again, Huh? Enjoy and draw your own conclusions:).

Oh - and I nearly forgot an unexpected bonus this week! Em and I timed our drive just right so that we were able to play chauffeur to the niece and nephew:). It started with some sleepy kiddos who were trying to figure out why they were riding with Aunt Julie and Aunt Emily instead of Momma and Dada. First half of the ride was filled with some chatter about going to Papaw's and Gamma's and seeing Miss M. The aunts did their best to sing some songs but let's face it: we're a little out of practice. When Sisaye Claire started to insistently say Momma!, I figured it was time for another diversion. Unfortunately, my story-telling skills are even worse than my singing skills. I proceeded to butcher the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. My apologies to the author. However, my fave part of our time with the kids was Saturday morning when I woke up to hear Sisaye Claire saying this: "Come ON, doggie! Let's go!" If only I could have gotten it on tape... The funny part was that M was actually following her:). Love.

New friend!

I know we just met, Rob - but thanks for sharing your lap:).
Miss M
