Ariana woke up at 5:15 today, in anticipation of the long ride to the Cape. 99% of the clothes were packed and ready to go (although I always seem to find something that was left behind). Grampa had a 7:30 meeting and said his good byes.
I grained the horses and got back to the house by the time Jenny arrived. She was going to have one bursting car full of kids and "things."
I give her a lot of credit for traveling with four.
They were off before 8:30.
I went out to finish chores.
Gary left for Buffalo...a garden show. I washed the sheets and remade the beds upstairs before crashing. Then I gave one last push and mowed around the pastures.
I spent the afternoon half asleep on the couch. Went out to do evening chores at 5:30.
Did not cook...we went down to the Golden Eagle for dinner. Nothing fancy.
I received several reports from my roving reporter (Ariana) today as the crew was progressing toward their destination. They promised to send pictures everyday.
Fortunately (or unfortunately) they had movies for the car and were kept busy.
After 9+ hours they arrived. The photos were sent from a Blackberry and are not crispy....sorry.
Above, are all the kids minus Addie. Should be quite an experience.
And here are the people in charge...college roommates and now vacationing together.
Lindsey, Jenny and Jenny.
Here is Addie, the kid missing from the group photo. Are they going to have fun or what?
Meanwhile....back at the ranch.
I went out to take the masks off the ponies...too nice to put them in the barn. Later.
Newbie was on the perch, longing to be outside.
Of course my buddies were keeping me company.
Seymour has the right idea....relax........
