Terrific Tri-Cities Trip

Dusty and I had an amazing weekend in the Tri-cities earlier this month, visiting with some friends of ours from college. Lately Dusty has a lot of work to do to on the farm, which means lots long of hours. So the weekend trip away was just what we needed and felt very refreshing. I am very thankful that Dusty took the time to make the trip possible.

 When we got into town we visited with Chris and Carla at their house. Dusty and I were excited to see them but Jayney was very unhappy. She had a splotchy rash that popped on the drive there that spread all over her chest and legs. I am nearly positive it was a reaction to the lotion I used right before we left home. Jayney was ok when we got there but when we were handing her around, I think it must have irritated her skin and she just cried and cried. Needless to say we didnt take many cute pictures while JJ was freaking out. Carla had plans but we were able to go out to dinner with Chris. After her fit JJ was worn out and just slept. Then we went to CJ and Libby’s house and stayed Friday night with them.

Saturday after a great breakfast we left and went out to Prosser to Grant and Andrea’s. Dusty helped the Grant work on trenching a new sprinkler system while Andrea and I had some girl time getting our nails done and Starbucks treats. We got to play a great game with Andrea's brother Robert and his girlfriend Carly. We had a nice peaceful morning talking with Grant and Andrea while watching their son Noah creep around Jayney curiously. Before we left we had to squeeze it a visit with the puppies. Andrea's dad raises labs; he is where we got our wonderful Moosey. I could have taken all of those little furballs home with me!

Sunday evening we got to see CJ and Libby for a little bit longer when we had dinner with them before we left town. Jayney "talked" to us at the start of dinner and then slept through all of our eating and visiting.
Jayney did great on her first weekend trip out of town too! She traveled awesome in the truck and usually slept the time we were on the road. I was glad she slept well in her pack and play crib at night too. Except for when her rash was bothering her when we first got to Chris and Carla’s house, and once at Gran and Andrea's when she was stuffed up and didn’t want to take a bottle Jayney hardly got upset at all, which was a huge relief since she was taken out of her normal routine. I hoped being in a new place wouldn’t throw her off schedule too much and was so thankful she seemed to do well with lots of transitions and meeting new faces.
