My daughters and I are embarking on a journey, literally.
In the summer of 2006, we fired up the car and drove from here to the Seattle area to visit my sister and brother-in-law who live in Bremerton, Wash.
We split the drive into two days since it’s a 12-hour trek and I’m the only one with a driver’s license. However, Bethany has mentioned she feels she can pitch in this time with driving.
So, off we go again. Our first day of travel should in end in Roseburg, Ore., in plenty of time for Bethany and her twin sister Gabrielle to spend some time in the indoor swimming pool at the Holiday Inn where we will bunk down for the night.
While I know my daughters love their aunt Ann and uncle Bill, the idea of getting to stay overnight in hotel or motel is something that gets them excited. Especially if the place has a pool.
They could care less about the scenery on the trek or the fact we will travel through three states. Rather they want to know if we have reservations at Embassy Suites.
This is so interesting considering at age 10, neither of my daughters has stayed overnight at a slumber party yet.
I’ll try to update you once we arrive at our destination.
