- We've had a lot of incredibly special times with people across Illinois, Indiana and Michigan
- We're almost finished with our time here in the Midwest
On Friday afternoon, Dave and the kids (at what ages do you stop calling them "the kids"?! By kids I mean Tyler and Lara, Caleb and Claire) head out by car to Denver. They'll be seeing a lot more of these scenes as they make their way across Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska before coming into Colorado.
Since our car only seats five passengers, I'll be flying to Colorado on Friday afternoon - missing out on all these beautiful farm scenes. (Hey, someone has to sacrifice, you know?!)
I'll get in Friday night, while they're driving through the night. Pray for safe travels for them, please!
They will arrive sometime on Saturday, hopefully just in time for our niece's rehearsal dinner on Saturday evening! Her wedding is Sunday evening, which kicks off a week of Patty family reunion at the "homestead" in Englewood!
In twenty six years of marriage, this will be the first time that the entire family (mom, dad, the four Patty kids and all their families) has been together for Christmas.
Yes, it's going to be rather epic! And I hope there will be some blog posts somewhere along the way to commemorate this special occasion.
