We are outta here!
Hip-hip-hurrah! Today we hit the road! I don't know if I was this excited when we went to Hawaii! Really, I mean is there any place like the place where you grew up, especially when your family is still there?
Of course being me I had to try and squeeze a few last projects in before I go. One of our big activities while we are there is a big family reunion with my dad's brothers and their families. We haven't done this since I think I was twelve. Should be really fun! So I decided it would be fun to make every little famliy a copy of my grandparents wedding photo. Of course you can't just hand them a copy of a photo, you must collage it! So here they were yesterday trying to bake in the sun. All eleven of them. I know, I am crazy. It is what makes me the Michelle we all know and love right? Right?
So here is the finished result. I am really happy with them, even if the picture here is not great, it was late when I took the photo and I had to use a weird angle to keep it from glaring. Shiny, shiny modge podge. Love it! Most of all I love the perfect quote my super friend Tif helped me with. It says "There is nothing like a dream to create the future" by Victor Hugo. Isn't that perfect? Thanks Tif!
So think of me Friday when we are doing the big stretch to Utah, we decided to leave tonight and go as far a Tahoe to make it a bit easier on all of us. Let's hope no one gets too stir crazy. The kids will probably be fine, I will be the one going nuts! Oh, and I am trying to schedule some posts to post themselves while I am gone so don't abandon me altogether! Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday too! Love you guys!
