Greetings to all! It's me, Maggie. Today, Cam and I will be wrapping up our trip to Illinois to see our grandma. As we've mentioned, our mornings started with lots of good exercise. Here we are, in the park:
|"Squirrel up ahead!"|
"I see it!!!"
I'm serious - they were EVERYwhere!
Anyway, Grandma lives in an apartment in something called an "assisted living" place. There are all kinds of nice people there - residents and staff - who we got to schmooze. We had all of them believing Siberian Huskies are the most well-behaved, sweet, quiet, calm, soft, cuddly puppies ever. That's right - we were on our super-best behavior. Mom and Dad said they couldn't have been prouder of us!
Cam and I felt very relaxed at Grandma's! While Cam napped, I checked out the TV:
|"Wow! A Western! Let's watch this, Grandma!"|
It was great! A TV right at my eye level!
Cam and I liked our grandma right away. While Cam worked the snuggle angle, I did this:
|"Et tu, Grandma?"|
That's right - I let her put her visor on me. I didn't even mind.
|"Yeah, let's do a jauntier angle, Grandma!"|
I sat there wearing it for a while. It seemed to make her happy. I liked doing that.
While Cam took a break, I covered the snuggle scene:

It was an awesome visit for all of us!
On the last day back at the cabin, Mom and Dad said we should all try to get some sleep early. I was pretty beat, so ...
|"I think I'll crash here."|
The weird thing was that we all loaded back up into the HR-V just after midnight! I remember seeing this again

That's about all I remember seeing; it was dark almost the whole way and Cam and I mostly did this:
Mom and Dad wanted to avoid the rush hour in the major cities we were going to drive through - St. Louis, Kansas City, and Topeka. It was a hard drive, but Dad did a great job. We saw the sunrise just over our Flint Hills:

Mom just took that through the window of the moving vehicle.
It was a wonderful trip! We loved seeing our grandma, but it is great to be home! Thanks for letting us share our adventure with you!
