Wisconsin was a blast but eventually it was time to move on to Kim's side of the family. So as we parted, we prayed, we laughed, Rory and Grammy Kay cried, Bella barked at a random walking by, and then we were on the road again.
The 15 hour trip to New York seemed like a zip compared to the Florida/Wisconsin Leg. The only real issue that I had was the horrible tolls through Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. It cost us 18 bucks alone just to pass through Ohio. They must be making some major cash off of the summer travelers.
Anyway, after 8 hours one day, a stay in a motel, another 7 hours on the road, we arrived in New York. Kim's 87 year old grandfather was waiting for us on the porch.
It was amazing to see him and hear all of his tales. We even had a fantastic experience with pulling the car out of the super steep driveway. He may have heatedly reminded Kim on how you are supposed to go up a driveway.
We got to see so many aunts and uncles and cousins that just couldn't wait till August to wish Rory a happy birthday so they threw him a surprise one!
We even got to see the infamous CJ! We spent some quality time drinking smoothies and watching Melissa McCarthy drive around with her grandma for an entire movie. Loved it!
We really enjoy our trips to New York. We can't wait to go again!
