Vern and I will be heading our silver Cadillac Seville down the road for a trip through six states. We’re bound for Texas to see our first grandchild, a darling baby boy, and we’re making a vacation out of it by including National monuments, National parks, amazing scenery, and beautifully decorated Bed and Breakfasts on the itinerary.
Making this grandparent thing a little more real is what motivated us to consider driving to Texas. A few of our friends have said, “Why are you driving from Oregon all the way to Texas? You should fly.”
I’ll try answering this questions here. Driving to the nearest airport will take us four hours. Going through security, another hour. Wait an hour for the flight. Fly all day. That’s one and a half days gone. We might as well drive and tour a part of America that we’ve only seen in National Geographics.
We can’t wait to see our son, daughter-in-love, and to hold the newest member of our family. Vern and I have no idea what it’s like to be grandparents, but all our grandparent friends and family tell us how remarkable it is. They say it’s even more fun than parenthood. I have loved every moment of being a parent, so being grandma must be next to heaven itself.
We invite you to join us on the adventure by following our blog. We’ll share some of our photos, reviews of terrific and (hopefully not terrible) discoveries, interesting sites, fascinating finds, delicious dining, and we’ll give you a mini tour of the bed and breakfasts in which we’ll be staying.
Followers will also get to discover with us what our friends and family have been telling us–that being a grandparent is the best “job” on the planet.
