On the road again!


Our vacation is nearly here! Bob is still working on Wednesday, but I am already off from work. I'll be picking up the rental car, doing laundry and getting everything ready to go, including baking a batch of cookies for Andy.
We will be leaving here early Thursday morning, as in 5 am. It's about an 18 to 19 hour drive so it would be nice to to a lot of it on Thursday. We hope to make it to Nebraska on Thursday and then to Colorado Springs on Friday. Friday also happens to be our 28th anniversary and I think being in Colorado with Andy is a pretty good way to celebrate!
I plan to take my laptop along but probably won't have time to visit your blogs or do much updating.
I'll take lots of pictures though, so be ready for that! We plan to return on August 30.

Enjoy, enjoy!!!
Irene, our daughter, just got back from the Springs a couple of weeks ago...and she told me that with all the rains, everything is so green and beautiful. You picked a great time to go there. [she also said there are a LOT of HUGE mosquitoes too this year]

Be safe on your travels...and celebrate your anniversary in style!!

We've made that drive and it's long and boring, but so very worth every hour once you hit those mountains and the beauty of Colorado!!!!

Enjoy and I hope you have a huge card for your camera, you'll need it. There's so much to take in out there.

Happy Anniversary and blessing to you and Bob!

Can't wait to hear all about the trip and your time with your son.

Praying for safe travel for you guys.

Hi Mari! Have a great time! Colorado is BEAUTIFUL this time of year. I went there about 10 years ago and loved it. It's actually a place I'd want to move to if I ever left New Orleans. Have fun and take lots of pictures.

Jill did a beautiful job with your blog!!! Isn't she great!

Andrea said...

Kendrah said...

Have a fantastic vacation! I love your new design!!!! In addition, our oven stopped working about 6 months ago, and we haven't had the money to replace it. SO, I'm also digging through your Slow cooker recieps, thanks! :)

Iona said...

Mari: Please have a wonderful vacation with your son, but also go and come back safely to us.

My family has lots of people that either have been or are in the service. I have two brothers who were career Navy. My DH was career Navy. I even had a niece who graduated from the Navel Academy and was Navy for a while. Several nephews-in-law are in the service, Army as well as Navy.

Others have been Marines too. So we weren't just all Navy. :D

I know the sacrifice these men and women make when serving their country. So, with that in mind, say "Thank you" to your son for us who are still here enjoying our freedoms to thank him.

It's maybe an awkward time to leave a comment (you on vacation and all....) but I wanted to tell you I just found your blog and really DO like the format! The font is very readable and matches the content with its clarity and refreshing substance. God bless you in "going out" and your "coming in".

Debbie said...

I hope you have a great time! Can't wait to see all the photos.
