Last Thursday….. wait wait wait, last Wednesday we decided to go “look” at vehicles on the lot or one that was just getting out on the lot, to be specific. Not brand-new, but gently used. Troy is well acquainted with this particular vehicle, as his place of employment had recently traded it in on a new one. He’d made many a trip across the state in it. So, he took me over to have a look at it. I’d really been wanting to get a Suburban again….. one just gets used to certain features, ya know, like seats enough for the whole family -comfortably. They made us a deal we just couldn’t pass up! Oh yeah, this just happened to be the day before I was headed out of town in the truck we traded in, so I had to take the “new” one! (twist my arm!)
I picked up the sub Thursday morning, did my last minute errands, dropped the kids off with Grandma and headed off on my adventure. I found that there’s a whole lot of nothing between home and Casper, WY! and yay for the GPS! I just plugged in the road I was headed for and followed the green line right on …
past my destination! For whatever reason, the GPS didn’t like the address and took me about a mile past the home of my best bud, Wendy.
Thanks to the phone call, I made it to the house. Wendy lives in an old train depot that was moved to a 43 acre plot right on the North Platte River.
The reason I took this little trip all alone was because Wendy was hosting her family reunion and asked me to come down and photograph it! Now if that isn’t a challenge, I’m not sure I know what one is! 🙂 I spent the weekend getting to know her extended family through the lens of my camera.
There was some trekking
A visit to an old family homestead
A trip to a cemetery to find their ancestors
There was lots of visiting
And a barn dance
It was tons of fun to hang out with my friend and her family. I was on my feet for hours and I have hours of editing and getting the pix ready for the family.
