New Jen's Horde

Thursday Thirteen (one day early!)


Thirteen Pictures from Our Road Trip

In case you don't normally follow my blog, you need to know that we just went on a road trip. We travelled all the way from Denver to Eastern Pennsylvania to visit family, and hit Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Missouri and Kansas! We visited a ton of family, and went on field trips and ate way too much fast food.

So, here are some photos from our trip, there's a lot more but I'll spare you!

1. This is Tiernan (on the left) and his cousin Liam, being silly.
Iowa-Tiernan and Liam being silly

2. This is my Grandma, and I just thought this was a neat picture of her. She's such a cool lady, and I'm glad I caught her laughing :-)
Iowa-Great Grandma Wanda

3. This is the horde in front of the Joseph and Hyrum Smith memorial in Nauvoo Iowa.

4. My sister Julie, and my mom. I don't think either of them would like this photo, but it's how they look when they're happy and I was glad to see how this turned out.
Iowa-Julie and Mom, happy

5. In Ohio, we got this photo of Davin with his Dad, Bill and Step-Mom, Lou and the kids.
Ohio-Davin, Bill, Lou, SAMT

6. The kids relaxing in Bill and Lou's hot tub. We didn't have a lot of down time on the trip, so this was really nice!
Ohio-Maya, Sage, Anya and Tiernan in hot tub

7. We were so bored on the road that Maya filled her Croc with colored pencils.

8. I knitted a scarf for my dad's 60th birthday while we were travelling. You can see me explaining it to him here. You don't normally have to explain a scarf, but I'd made this one with a stripe pattern based on the Fibonacci Sequence. Yeah, we're all nerds in my family.

9. Anthracite coal, isn't it shiny?

10. This is where the latch blew off of our pop up camper, causing it to begin to open while we were driving. Darn Kansas wind!

And, because you've been so good, I'll show you a series of self-portraits with me and my family members...

11. Me and my niece Amelia (Liam's sister). She took this one! Sometimes I think she's more like me than she is like her mom.

12. Me and my little (ha!) brother, Mark.

13. Me and my Dad.

And, you get a bonus! Here's a picture of four generations of my family. It's the kids, me, my dad and my Grandma. I love pictures like this, and I treasure them. They're so hard to get!

All wonderful pictures, Jen. The one that stands out is the four generation one. It needs to be framed.
Lovely pictures, Jen! I enjoy posts like this. Ditto what Jean-Luc said.

And I hope we have as much fun on our road trip as you did on yours!
Frame them all in one of those collage frames. Those are great!
What a great trip. I always love a photo blog. Sounds like a trip you'll remember all your life, though I sympathized a bit with your previous post (re: dicey day/return)
It looks like you had a blast!
Oh wow, what fun pictures. Sounds like a great trip!
How great to be able to have a multi-generational picture!
