On June 4th we hopped in the car and headed up north
Mom bought a "backseat extender" from Outward Hound - which made the whole back seat area of the car flat
We had blankets and a couple of dog beds too
Are we there yet??
Sorry kids - it's a 500 mile drive
Gosh - it's gonna take 87 hrs to get there!
Mom really dropped the ball
and took NO pictures on the way to
It is beautiful country!
After 10 long hours we arrived
We had a safe pen to spend time in
cause the yard was not fenced
I was excited to meet Hazel's family
there was a nice covered porch too
All the visiting had us all tuckered out!
I was the only one awake! Sort of!
Then Graduation Night!
the reason for the trip
Grandson Jake with his Mom!
Our Jake is one special guy
He has a chromosome disorder that affects his
speech, and learning abilities
But on June 5th he graduated from High School
And younger brother Austin!
He hopes to become a computer programmer
and will be attending
Lewis & Clark State College in the fall
we couldn't be prouder of both young men
Walking together to receive their diplomas
With proud Dad after the ceremony!
Getting food ready for the pawty on Saturday
And we met this guy
On Sunday we headed back home
Another 87 hour drive
We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

Now, we have a back seat that folds down, so we can see out. Of course, sometimes it causes loud bark in HER ear when we see something dangerous....like a cat.
That's beautiful country.
