So, that little stealth mission I’d mentioned in my last post?
On Thursday afternoon, we spontaneously decided to join Mom and Dad in northern California for Thanksgiving. We hit the road at 11:00PM, arrived the next morning (the drive is 10-11 hours) and spent a fantastic weekend with them. It was especially great when my brother and nephew showed up! Thanksgiving on Friday felt so much like the real Thanksgiving that all day Saturday, I thought it was Friday. There’s nothing like family. It had been three years since I’d visited mine in California, so that trip was a long time coming.
We left for Arizona yesterday morning and got home after dark. I thought I’d share a few road trip pictures:

Oh Kristi that sounds wonderful! I’m glad you got to spend time with your family. I hope your Mom is doing well! xoxo
Hi Colleen, thank you! It was truly wonderful to have that impromptu family celebration. Mom is doing very well. =) We’re going back to visit again in two weeks, and she’ll start her chemo the day we leave. oxox
Love your spontaneity! I’m so glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, I know this year is an important one. I’m rooting for your mom.and cheering her on.
Hi Poetry! Going to California for Thanksgiving was probably the best spur-of-the-moment decision we ever had, and the weekend was just precious! Thank you… I’ll let Mom know you said that. =)
