It’s official! We have begun our epic Road Trip all over the United States.
First of all, thank you to our wonderful friends and family who came over last night with pizza and a homemade ice cream cake to wish us well on our journey! Thank you Robin, Kate, Tomas, Joni and Mom & Dad. We are so lucky to have such a thoughtful and sweet send off.
Then we woke up and found this on our car.
Our neighbor Cathy wrote us a really sweet postcard and brought us sticky buns to start our trip off right. Thanks Cathy!!! You rock, they were delicious.
Now we were all packed up and finally ready to go for our 42 day journey.
Our first stop was Meredith, NH to get to Shep’s Boat Basin
Where we picked up our first hitchhiker of the trip – our niece Avery!
Then it was a whole lot of driving across NH, VT and upstate NY all the way to Niagara Falls. All told, this was probably our longest driving day of our trip, save one from Albuquerque to Fort Worth. We made pretty good time considering.
We arrived to our hotel at 9pm and we needed to find a place for dinner. But it seems like 9PM is a big time for dinner around here and the first place had a 45 minute wait…
We got back to the room around 10:30 and I tried to take the pictures off my camera but this laptop needed another program to transfer the photos, so I just went to bed while the program downloaded. Long story short(er) I got it all working this morning. We’ve got a rainy day here to see the Falls and then we’re off to Cincinnati!
