Trixie’s Travels: The final stretch

We are now in week seven of our nearly eight weeks away.  Tomorrow morning (early) we begin the final 2-day drive homeward.  It’s bittersweet.  We’ve been away for so very long that it will be nice to finally be home again.  However, the trip has been wonderful, and we’ve seen so many amazing things and beautiful scenery that it really will be sad to leave it all behind us.

Since my last travel post was devoid of photos, I’ll include a few extras to share what we’ve seen.

Great Falls of the Missouri River, Montana

Glacier National Park
Sierra was thrilled she got to throw snow in July!

Wildflowers on a hike to Ptarmigan Falls

Deer outside our tent early in the morning.

We met up with 4 ladies with whom I ran cross country in college.  All have had their first baby within 18 months of Kaia.

Kansas City
We spent one night with my cousin before heading on to St. Louis

We’ve really enjoyed spending time in Grandma and Grandpa’s pool in this hot, hot heat.  The night we arrived, two of Jason’s aunts and uncles and his grandmother came over to hang out and they brought dinner.  Hooray.  We’ve had some time to see friends, some time to see family, and some time just to lay low. 

And since this is a Trixie’s travels post, I’ll also let you know that she, too, has been enjoying some time relaxing by the pool.  Her mass and electrical components prevent her from swimming, but she likes to look on with a beverage.  She didn’t get much action while we were camping.  I had dreams of plugging into a power source in my parents’ camper and evening or two, but it just didn’t work out that way.  She’s done a great job of helping me keep up with my Road Trip Quilt Along, but I admit, I’ll be happy to get home and work with Tori, my Bernina, again.

    Yes, the kitties are anxiously awaiting your return. They have been loved on but it is just not enough in their opinions. They want to know why the dogs always get to go and they get left behind.
