Wrapping It Up

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:

Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge - over the Mississippi River

That's about all I remember seeing; it was dark almost the whole way and Cam and I mostly did this:

"Zzz ..."
"Zzz ..."

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!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
