Making it to Maryland

8 1/2 hours that turned into almost 12. 4 states: Indiana, Ohio (new to the girls), Pennsylvania (new to the girls) and Maryland (new to all of us!) One major accident on the interstate that delayed us about 2 hours. It was an interesting day of numbers.

But more notable was with our longest day of travel, we were all quite pleasant in the car. The window markers were a hit. Our audiobook was engaging (Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.) The weather was perfect for driving. It was just a L-O-N-G, L-O-N-G day!

But at the end of the road was my dear friend Jill. We first met at the China Hotel in Guangzhou after we added Annie to our family, and she added Riyan to hers. Funny how you can meet someone on the other side of the world, connect through the internet, drive half a country to get to each other, and pick up like you've known each other forever! Can't wait to spend the next few days with Jill and her family.
