We made it safely to La Grande. I didn't think we were ever going to get here though. We stopped at Arlington and ate at the Pheasant Grill. Yummy! This is where we made the biggest mistake. We let the kids have pop. They each had their own, too. We had to stop 4 times on the way. Three of those times were by the freeway. OK, the kicker was Andrew. We had a first. He had to drop a "duke" as Steve would say, along the freeway. Yuck! I kicked some sand and dirt over it, but I can well imagine what the truckers were thinking as the passed us!
We finally got here, and unloaded the van. I chuckled just wondering what the neighbors were thinking! Here comes her sister with her passle of loud kids! Peace just flew the neighborhood.
Jackie fed us a nice ham and potato dinner and the kids have been playing like crazy. We are getting them ready for bed. Then we can watch OUR movie!
