What do you do with a new vehicle? Make plans for a road trip! Actually Daddy had planned this trip for awhile, the new van just meant we had extra seating and could take Mimi and Nana with us. We headed to Historic Washington State Park for the Jonquil Festival. We were hoping for something a little more old fashioned and it wasn't exactly our cup of tea but we made the best of it and got some cute pictures. We are looking forward to going back in the fall when they have Frontier Days for Homeschools.
It's hard to take a road trip without stopping for breakfast at Cracker Barrel! We tried to see my cousin Cody who manages this CB, but he didn't come in until 2 that day.

The Jonquil Festival is a major event with lots of crafts, music, food and games. We didn't know how big of a deal it was until we arrived. It reminded us more of a fair atmosphere, and the music was super loud when I was trying to take these pictures. Which explains the distracted subjects...

One more try, nope still lost one!

|My new favorite pic|
|Waiting patiently on our ride|
|"In that shiny little surrey with the fringe on top"|
|Addy was excited about our ride, probably because she was so tired of walking!|
|Arynn did so well on her first road trip!|
|After our ride|
|The best family pic of the day|
|Can you believe she's almost 4?!|
|Such a proud big sister!|
|I so wish I could go back and move that flower out of Addy's face, but these were the last pics of the day and we were exhausted.|
This is one of my all time favorite pictures of the boys, now I have a new one to compare. I hope they are always close friends.
Our sweet boys
Still just as sweet
Overall we had a good time, but we sure did sleep well that night!
