Heading South Again

We are heading south again this weekend, and this time we ARE going to be enjoying some warmer temperature that our fair state offers! I have to give Wisconsin credit though, --mid-thirties and sunshine at the end of February is not bad! But apparently central Illinois is going to hit close to (or maybe hit?) the 50 degrees!! Woo-hoo!!

The reason for our travels is to celebrate my Mom's 82nd birthday with her! Last year the weather kept me six hours away from her, but I posted a Happy Birthday post to share what a wonderful lady Mom is.:)

Mom had done some traveling of her own this past year. She was able to go toTim and Brook's wedding in Michigan in August. It was so special having her there, and I know that Tim was so happy that she could make it! I'm here to tell ya that as you get older, trips get harder!:) And I haven't had two, (count 'em TWO) knee replacements like Mom has.

Anyway, I'm all packed and ready to go. Hubby is getting some things done before our departure. I am excited also because all my siblings except by brother, who lives in Nevada, will be there!! That's SIX of us !!:) I am so thankful that all of our schedules came together for this weekend!

So Happy Birthday (Saturday) Mom! We love you and will be there soon.

Again, if you have spare minute would you please pray for travel mercies for our family this weekend? Thanks so much!:)

Oh, I just remembered- pack the camera!!:)

Have a great weekend- ya'll- okay, I'm not going THAT far south...;)
