My Week(s) in Review ~ Project 365

Project 365 button designed by

Howdy all! We're back from our vacation and suffice it to say, I wish't it were longer. But here goes a glimpse into our travels.

Sunday ~ June 26th

Watching tv in the hotel in Winnemucca. Can you tell Bethany just had a bath?

Monday ~ June 27th

Waiting for our lunch at a little restaurant in Weiser, ID where I lived from age 4 to age 11. Afterwards, we drove through the town and saw where I used to live and where my cousins used to live.

Tuesday, June 28th

At home at my mom and dad's, it rained on and off all day, but boy were the rainbows beautiful!

Wednesday, June 29th

We visited Grandpa Gereald today and wished him a Happy Birthday!

Thursday, June 30th

The kids took turns driving Grandpa Henry's tractor.

Friday, July 1st

Had a surprise visit from one of Yohn's friends from Washington. He happened to be passing through on his way home from Idaho and asked us to come and have lunch with him.

Saturday, July 2nd

We went to a weddding reception at the bass ponds. I thought the kid's reflection on the water was kind of fun.

Sunday, July 3rd

Bethany won a fun pair of sunglasses at the local pizza place.

Monday, July 4th

The kids waving at Smokey Bear during the fourth of July parade.

Happy Birthday to me!

Tuesday, July 5th

We were visiting a friend of my mom's who was like an aunt to me as a kid and happened to be in town when these guys were celebrating Dave Thompson's 200th anniversary of mapping the Colombia River (and other rivers from Canada to the Pacific Ocean).

Wednesday, July 6th

We saw my aunt and my cousin's family today. I haven't seen this particular cousin in at least 15 years.

Thursday, July 7th

Sadly, we had to leave for home this day. But I got this picture of the sun behind the clouds from the car window, just before we stopped for the night in Winnemucca.

Friday, July 8th

Interestingly, this is the only picture I took on our way home on Friday. I was trying to get a picture of the Wal Greens on the overpass, but I didn't get my camera on soon enough and this was all I got.

Saturday, July 9th

I got nada. Sorry, I was catching up on laudry and other chores today and forgot to snap a picture. It probably wouldn't have been that exciting anyways so I spared you all.

It looks like a wonderful vacation and that everyone had a really good time! (and in reading your captions, I had a lot of fun saying "Winnemucca" :)).

The Bug said...

You had some great pics this week - the rainbows, the water reflection picture & the sunset. But what struck me most is that I'll bet Grandpa Gereald has some interesting tales to tell :)

Vacations to see family are the best. Love the reflection on the water picture. Very cool. The rainbow is beautiful. How cool that the kids got to drive the Bethany looks cute in her new glasses. :). I sure wish we had seen a 4th of July parade. I love parades.
