After staying 5 nights in Ellicotville, NY we said our good-byes to our family over breakfast at good-ole McDonalds. It was perfect, a little food for our bellies, some great conversations and a play gym to help the kids burn off energy and prepare for our long road trip to South Bend, Indiana.
We got to our hotel in South Bend Friday evening a little before dinner. Once we unloaded a few things from the car everybody relaxed while I made some BLT's. (Pre-cooked bacon makes doing this on the road super easy! Although we did forget the ketchup and knife, my mom was sent to the rescue=across the parking lot to Arby's!)
|Silly girls wanted their photo taken with the manikins|
We stopped at the Cancer Survivor & Awareness Tree. Each tiny ribbon represents someone who is battling or has battled cancer. The girls and I tied on a ribbon for Grandma Scherb and Grandma Diane (Grandma Diane is cancer free, Yeah!). I thought this was such a beautiful symbol of remembrance and celebration of life.
Now as you can imagine my photos do not do this beautiful place any justice!
It was a wonderful trip with my family that I am so thankful for.
