The last of my Tahoe bliss . . .

It seems every time I visit my parents, my dad ends up cleaning the car I drove. Last year it was Greg's truck which may have been the biggest scrub (inside and out) down in the history of trucks. This year it was my Durango. Mom and I took Porter to a rummage sale while Grandpa helped channel Ethan and Lincoln's energies - a good car washing! They loved scrubbing, but Ethan, more than anything else, loved the hose. Who can blame him? The Durango will never be like new again, but it sure looks better now than it has in YEARS!


Later that week during my 10-year high school reunion (more pics to come), my dad accompanied me to the family beach day as my "date" in Greg's absence. If not for him, I never could have had as lovely a time visiting and catching up with old friends. The pictures below are of Ethan and his ladybug friend, "Rocket." Thanks Amber for helping come up with the name. We still talk about him often.





Sharing his love of bugs with anyone who will look or listen.

I wonder what it is with our fathers and washing cars...my dad does the same thing (but at the car wash! HA) Looks like it was such a great trip for you

If I was closer, I would have brought them my truck to wash. It's always needing cleaned.
