Recent short journeys are summarized in the following pictures.
Notice the yellow Howdy printed on the wing of the plane?
Hub and I endured another Spirit Air trip south to the Sunshine State.
Except it rained the five days we were there.
But we enjoyed our granddaughters' school play.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Returning home for a couple of days to do laundry and begin planting the garden,
we soon packed our bags again and ventured north. This time we traveled
(for too many hours) in our trusty Mazda unsportscar
to the Green Mountain State (a.k.a. Vermont).
We witnessed a granddaughter run a half-mile race and our son complete a marathon.
There was a soccer game (teams of six and seven year old girls),
and competitive bowling.
I did not win. My bowling skills are pitiful.
The day's activities ended with a Mexican dinner and cotton candy dessert (for kids only).
We attended a Memorial Day parade.
It is hard to see in this picture, but along the parade route folks parked
pick-ups and enjoyed the spectacle from the back of their truck.
A long ride accompanied by thousands (maybe millions) of other holiday vacationers heading home seemed interminable. But we made it unscathed, tired, and glad to be home again.
Until our next trip...
