My husband, my dog Zoe, and I are on vacation! The cat Gracie stayed home! We were given a gift of 10 days vacation from our jobs and the money to go! We left Sunday after church and have been driving to Seattle. We are now in a beautiful LaQuinta Inn in Auburn, WA and will be having breakfast with our son in the morning! We are so excited. We haven’t seen our son for quite a few months and this is going to be a fun and relaxing vacation. We will have Thanksgiving at his house with his friends and room mates and we will watch him run a marathon on Sunday. We decided to drive so we could take Zoe with us. She really has done well on the trip, her very first extensive car trip. The mountains in Montana, Idaho and Washington are awesome. I even managed to make it to two yarn stores. More about that later.
