So ... before we get into the meat of the post I was quite embarrassed to find out that the handmade photo birthday thank-you postcards didn't exactly make their destinations fully intact! It sounds like every thank-you note we sent arrived as just a blue or white piece of paper! So sorry everyone! There was a photo collage on the other side that apparently came unglued somewhere along the postal journey! I'll post the photo collage when I get chance.
So this is just a quick and photo-less post to let you know we made it to Maine after 3, looooong days of driving! It took 30 hours! I think I rather would have sucked up traveling with 2 dogs and a baby on a plane than make the 30 hour drive again. On the plus side ... we did get to spend an evening at my sister and bro-in-law's house in SC!
I'll post again this evening with photos!
