Roger and I got home today around 4:00. We had the most wonderful trip, saw so many things, its seriously mind boggling. We took tons of pictures, can't wait to get them and scrap them while its all fresh...yes, Sister I'm gonna do them right away, not in 3 years :)
We were certainly saddened by the death of Papa Frank. He was quite the character as we all know, he had a kind heart and we will miss him.
To go back a bit, after we left Cedar Rapids, last Sunday, we stopped in Omaha, Nebraska at the most wonderful quilt shop of the trip. They actually have 2 shops in town, I went the the largest, both are called Country Sampler. It was full of wool, fabric, patterns, kits, wonderul wood pieces, plus they were having Christmas in July so lots of Christmas. I could have wandered and spent for hours but we headed out after a fun shopping trip. We were excited to find a Cracker Barrel near by...since it was Sunday I had their pot roast dinner. Oh my goodness, it was so good, one of my favorites of the trip.
We arrived in Grand Island Nebraska around 6, it is a good place to be from. We headed out the next morning to Laramie Wyoming. At this point we were just ready to be home. We did stay near the University of Wyoming and were so impressed with the size of their football stadiium....it was huge!!!!!
Arrived in Salt Lake City Tuesday evening, enjoyed walking around the temple and the square, had dinner, went back to the hotel...slept and up again this time heading to Reno. Reno drive was a long day..519 miles. We had dinner at BJ's Brewhouse one of our favorites. We went down to the casinos for a bit then came back and crashed one again. If you ever have to be in Reno, which I hope not...unless of course you are going for Hot August nights, you have to eat at Peg's Glorified Ham and Eggs I think its called. We ate at a new one out by our hotel this morning, it was our best breakfast of the trip.....you gotta try it!!
Home is the best place to be, other than with our granddaughters and family. It feels so good to come home and everything is in great shape. We hired a gardner and he has done a great job, so great we are gonna keep him!!!!
Off to relax a bit and put my feet up on my own foot stool ....until our next trip...bye bye!!!
