On our way to Virginia

This is a mixture of the states we drove through getting to Virginia. From some nice straight, flat roads to squiggly hilly ones. 

From North Dakota, to Minnesota and family time, 

(You can click on the pictures to enlarge them)

on to Iowa (which the welcome to Iowa sign didn't turn out as it was dark outside). 

Next is Missouri

and then Illinois

and in to Indiana.

After that came Kentucky

and West Virginia, where we were just going to take the toll road and be done with it; but we took a wrong turn, took a different road and went on the squiggly roads again. 

and finally, Virginia

where we're spending time with family again.

Heading east to the granddaughters!

With harvest officially done, we are finally able to head out and hopefully to warmer weather. Except, a cold front is coming through and I think it will follow us all the way to Virginia. So, with that in mind, we're trying to figure out our best strategy. We stopped in Fargo to visit with Curt's sister and husband. Then on to Minnesota for a family visit, but we need to figure out how long to stay to maybe let the cold front go through so we can travel behind it.  We got to town Thursday, with plans maybe leaving on Sunday as Monday night is pretty cold. Or, do we wait an extra day for it to get in front of us since we've got electricity hookup here.

We went to visit my brother, Dennis, and his wife, Betty, who live about a half hour away. It was probably the first time we've driven to their place with snow on the ground!

We stayed busy with the granddaughters. They had a 4-H meeting Friday with awards given out from their fairs. After that they filled backpacks with supplies for homeless kids. Then our oldest granddaughter (12) got to spend a "moonlight madness" evening sponsored through the church for an all-nighter of bowling, games, movies and food. She took a friend along and they had a good time and stayed up all night and slept a good part of the next day. 

It was a weekend of school and 4-H projects. We helped make a fleece tie blanket and a pillowcase. 

And, Calissa wanted to play pinochle with Grandpa!
