Family

I really don't know how we'd all make it without the kindness of our family and friends. Lately, we have all become a bit spoiled from conveniently being able to spend time with our friends and family out on the road.

The past few days we spent on James' grandparents farm in Iowa. Not only did they give us a place to stay, but fed us better than anyone deserves to be fed, let us run in the corn fields and even hooked us up with a spare tire for our trailer. Of course, Grandma was a bit ornery since we doted on her SOOO much for her birthday - by that I mean we each got her one of her favorite candy bars.... and yet somehow that was "too much" you know, since she spent the whole day taking care of us.... As if all that weren't enough, Grandma, Aunt Betty, and Aunt Carol sent us on the road with tons of homemade snacks and cookies. Thanks for everything y'all!!! We are now well-rested and plump and safely back on the road! The farm is just the best.

We stopped at Planet Sub in Des Moines on our way out of Iowa today. It's a franchise that James' cousin Barb owns. And OH MY LORD it is good. Wow. I'm still thinking about that Chicken Enchilada Soup.... and the snickerdoodle cookie.... and I wanted to steal Hootie's meatball sub... mmmm.... If you are in Des Moines, you HAVE to go eat there.

And THEN for dinner we stopped in Kearney, Nebraska. Coincidentally Jenn (Miguel's wife) and Bridget (Hootie's woman) are both from Nebraska and BOTH went to college in Kearney. So I've heard a LOT about Kearney, Nebraska and tonight I finally got to go! Jenn's mom, Ki, little brother, Ben, sister Kylee, and Kylee's boyfriend, Jason, took us out to dinner. It was so good to see them all. I hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving last year at Ft. Stovall!! :)

Ben was rockin out with his guitar t-shirt and was entertaining us all at the table with Miguel's iphone games. :) OH! And we got to see his Storm Trooper Halloween costume which was AWESOME.



There's really nothing like getting to hang out with family along the way. I don't I could describe how much more meaningful it makes these trips.
