Road Trippin' all the way to Michigan

I've been wanting to update for a week and just haven't had a chance because I've been sitting around eating popsicles. Like five at a time. Is that bad? I'll save my very unmotivated behavior for another post.

Mike, Dal, and Kayla headed out on the road for Michigan on July 2nd for the Jr. Olympics. It is a 24 hour drive, one way...if you don't get stuck in traffic in Chicago or get lost in Detroit. Yeah, that happened. Regardless of that, they all had a great time. They worked so hard to raise money for this trip and I am so proud of them. This is a little picture diary of their trip.

This is in Wyoming.

The rolling hills of NE. Mike said it was beautiful driving through this area. A little greener than our desert and sage brush. They stayed overnight in Omaha on the way there and in Lincoln on the way home.

Finally there! This is the tunnel that ran from the hotel to the arena where they competed.
Three Amigos. Just across the river is Canada.

This is the arena that they fought in. It is where the Detroit Lions play. That's Michaela before her fight. Mike didn't get pics of them fighting because he had to video tape them. If I ever figure out how to get video from the camera to the computer, I'll post it on here.
Both of the kids lost in the 2nd round this year. I really wish I could post the video so you could see how well they fought. This is their master, Will.
On the road home again. I told Dal to get pictures in every state and he did.

Well, that was their trip. We were glad to have them all home safe and sound. Me and Reagen were getting a little bored without them.

I still can't believe they drove all the way there. Looks like they will have some fun memories of the road trip though!

Congratulations to you both! Your dad's a pretty good guy, isn't he? (Master Will doesn't look to bad either ...)
