New Jersey, Here we Come

Emily has a week of vacation coming up so we’re getting ready to head back home to NJ for our first visit since picking up puppy Penny. While we do have half of a reindeer team in our stable, unfortunately it’s not enough to fly us all back

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.

16.3

“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!

Comments for New Jersey, Here we Come

  1. I actually laughed out loud at my desk here due to “Then I showed Penny the route on Google Maps.” and sweet Penny’s expression 🙂 I hope you have fun!

    He actually drove from north of NYC to north of Chicago in one day by himself. He didn’t even have canine help. Pennsylvania is a loooooooooong state.

    Aww have a safe journey! I can’t think of better companions for a road trip myself! No back-seat drivers and arguing about the route!
    Hugs, Carrie & Pups x
