So, after a couple of months cooling our heels we are happy to be brushing off the cobwebs and getting our road legs back under us. That means getting back into the rhythm of life on the road, including posting tales of our adventures for all of you. We’ve got a lot planned in the coming months and we’ll be adding more pictures, more places, more often!
After a crazy fun Christmas with the extended Boggess family in Ohio, we decided to ring in the New Year in Pittsburgh. Every year they block off the downtown Cultural District for a parade, food carts, street performers, live music and more. We counted down to midnight with a fun crowd on Penn Avenue, watched a spectacular fireworks show launched from the rooftops of the surrounding buildings, then danced in the street to a great brass band. Hello, 2013!!
Ayrril has wanted to see Fallingwater since she was 12 years old so on New Year’s Day we drove to Mill Run, Pennsylvania to visit the Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece. It’s an amazing place- open, warm and inviting. Even the boys were impressed. It wasn’t quite as cozy as our bus but it was still pretty nice.
Now we’re back in Michigan visiting friends and seeing some of my old stomping grounds. You might be thinking, “Michigan? In January? Are you crazy?” We’ve asked ourselves the same questions but couldn’t drag ourselves away just yet. It’s cold but snow covered and sunny right now so we’re loving it. We’re headed to Chicago next but eventually we’ll turn the bus toward warmer pastures – after Chicago it’s Philly, DC, and then Key West bound!
Did you have a chance to join the ceremony & speech in Washington these days?
