While we do have half of a reindeer team in our stable, unfortunately it’s not enough to fly us all back to NJ
Em’s flying home Saturday morning, but I’m leading the ground invasion with the pups. Unfortunately the distance between Chicago and NJ hasn’t shrunk since our last trip so we’re looking at a thirteen hour car ride.
“Ha, you crack me up Will! Thirteen hours? Yeah right, tell me another joke.”
Then I showed Penny the route on Google Maps.
“Oh no. You weren’t joking. This isn’t funny at all.”
The weather’s ugly here in Chicago the rest of the week, but to survive thirteen hours in the car I’m going to run the pups ragged at the beach, rain or shine.
“Guys, don’t forget about me while I’m gone”
She doesn’t know it yet, but on the other side of that ride there will be plenty of smiles like this for Penny
The last time we were in NJ Penny would fall asleep on walks before we reached the end of the block. This time around I’m excited to show her all of our favorite old haunts. Should be a lot of fun, we just have to get there first!
