Just wanted to let you all know that we all made it home safe. Darin (always refered to as the SIL) drove that "big beast" of a motorhome all the way home for us. I know my dad would be so proud of him. I know it was very intemidating for him to drive something that large and knowing that my dad was the only one that drove it, but he did great.
Annie is home safe with us and adjusting to her new home that is not on wheels. She is beginning to eat and drink and "plump" back up. She adores laying with the girls and sleeps at the foot of our bed every nite. We are going to take her to get a hair cut and the vet for her shots this next week.
Many of you have asked about a funeral service. My parents wishes were spelled out for me very clearly and they do not want any kind of service. I so appreciate all the nice gestures of people that would've attended. However, they made it clear to me personally in years past and in a letter they left me that "you should go take the girls to Disney World instead." So in time we will do just that.
All of your words about my parents have been so generous and kind. We all appreciate it. My husband and I read them together and it does help. I will be taking one readers advice and turning there blog into a book for me and the girls to read someday. I think that will be a nice keep sake when they get older to remember things grandma talked about and stories she told. We always use to read it together when they traveled. They loved looking at the pictures grandma took.
