We made it to West Chester, Ohio today and we took the scenic route – not intentionally, it’s just the way “Jill” (our GPS) took us- maybe there is no other way, but this felt like the scenic route! By the way, we were on Highway 52, the “Ohio Scenic Byway” – and we are using the term “scenic” loosely – there was not much to see! Just old coal mining towns and occassional glimpes of the river that we were driving along .
We got to see my Mom & Rick. They have a little kitty named “Taz” and he was NOT happy about Cali’s visit. In fact, he wasn’t very happy to see me either – I got hissed at, twice!! I also got to see my Uncle Bob, Aunt Colleen, my cousin Tammy and her two little girls, Lili and Faith. I had hoped to see my cousin Nathan- I haven’t seen him in 15 years (yikes!) – but he was working in Kentucky. He said he might try to see me in the morning, at least to give me a hug (what a sweetie!!). When I talked to him, he said he was 980 feet in the air (and he answered his cell phone – twice!). I hope I get to see him – it has been a long time and he’s a grown man with two kids now! Cali had a blast running around the back yard and chewing on sticks – I’m sure she is going to sleep well tonight!
It was a nice visit and now we are back in the hotel. The kitties seem pretty relaxed, even little Zuni is out checking the place out! The hotel is pretty cool- this was the last room they had in the hotel and it is a two bedroom suite – lots of room for the kitties to move around. They have been little troopers so far.
Tomorrow we drive to Iowa – hopefully we will miss the weather in the area and have a nice dry drive thru Indiana and Illinois.
Cali has a sweet ride in the minivan 🙂 Doesn’t she look comfy??
