125 photo's to see here

I am so glad to be home. Such a long busy 3 days. The drive up was crazy. Traffic wasn't too bad, until we got into the coty of Pittsburgh, then it was crazy. But 6.5 hours of driving, a child who threw up all over herself, the seat and floor, 2 bathroom breaks, stop for gas, we made it to the motel. All I can say is I am glad I brought a trashbag, roll of paper towels and cleaner and wipes with us, cause they sure came in handy with Rebecca getting sick. We got to the motel, Jim checked us in and got the room key, which is a card and not a key, and we took the elevator up to our room #209. We took showers and changed clothes, then went to Mikes house for a Ham dinner. We walked the ranch, took photo's, sat around and talked, and when 8pm came we left to go to the motel. Rebecca and I got into our pajamas, she layed on the bed and watched cartoons, Jim was hungry again and ordered a pizza. Man that pizza was good. I ate almost 2 slices, Rebecca ate 1 slice and Jim ate the other 5 slices. 11:pm Rebecca finally fell asleep, and I crawled or maybe I fell into that bed and I crashed. We awoke at 6:30am to Jim's cell phone ringing. It was Joe letting us know he called an ambulance and was going to the hospital. He was in pain so bad he couldn't walk. Tests done and prescription for Vicodin and he was released. He slept for hours at his brother Mikes. He finally got up and ate a little, but had to go back and lay down. Another trip to the hospital this morning and come to find out he has a severely infected bladder. A prescription for antibiotics and another for pain killers and sent him back to Mikes. He was suppose to fly home tonight, but he'll wait til tomorrow morning. The reception was awesome. There was over 100 people there. The food was fabulous. The 2 girls from the catering company did an awesome job. Seasoned red potatoes, seasoned chicken, BBQ chicken, baby back ribs, rigatonni, sausage with peppers and onions, rolls, salad, pasta salad, and all kinds of cookies, tarts, pastries, and of course a beautiful wedding cake. The bride is the lady with the white dress and short blonde hair and her husband Mike is the older guy with blue shirt and black pants. The decorations and party favors were awesome. There was karoke, and a DJ. I had so much fun, and met so many new people. Alot of them I alrady knew from other parties at Joes house. Like Uncle Frank and Uncle Guido, those 2 are the life of the party. And dancing, man the music was from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, and alot of country music. I danced the Macarana, Electric slide, Hokey Pokey, Chicken Dance, Line dancing, and I learned the Polka. With all the dancing and climbing of hills site seeing, I feel like a giant charlie horse. My legs hurt so bad I can barely walk, but it was so worth it. My Rebecca was not shy when it came to dancing. She got right up on that dance floor and danced so much she broke out in a sweat, lol. I totally enjoyed myself, and everyone else too. Jim took Rebecca out site seeing and we went to a small diner that had the best breakfast. For 4.95 you get 3 huge pancakes, 2 eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, sausage or ham, toast, coffee and juice. Man was it delicious. Then we went back to the motel room, rested, showered and dressed for the party. It started at 4pm and didn't end until 3am. We left at 10:pm. I was exhausted and so was Jim and Rebecca. By 11pm we were all in bed sleeping. Rebecca thought it was awesome that she had a giant bed to herself, lol. But let me tell you, I can't wait to crawl into my bed, cause those beds at the motel were not at all comfy. I am so tired I feel numb and I ache so bad. I took some Tylenol and I am going to bed as soon as I finish typing here. I enclosed pics of Pittsburgh city, the highway, the rain we drove into on the way home, and the tunnels we went through. 5 tunnels. We used 100.00 in gas, 33.00 in tolls and 50.00 in food snacks and drinks. Well we are being slammed with a storm right now, so I am going to go and climb in my bed. And shut off computer. I am glad to be home. I missed you all so much. I told alot of people about all my JLand family and how much we all care about each other. They said I have some really awesome friends, and yep I sure do.

Good night everyone, sweet dreams.

LOVE YOU ALL...............................CINDY

  23. Oh wow Cindy, what a wonderful weekend you had but no wonder you are exhausted with all that travelling and all that dancing.  I am so pleased you had a wonderful time and the photos are great, especially of the food!  I loved the road sign on the ranch saying whoa!  I couldn't see one of you though in your new outfit.  Hope you feel better by the time you read this.  Hugs, Terry x
