We're a little out-of-order here.
Shannon's party was BEFORE our California trip.
We still wanted to get these photos out to everyone.
Shannon turned 8 on Feb 7.
It only took us 5 weeks to have her party!
Dad tried to get the cake out of the pan and ruined it!
At least I decorated it for her.
Shannon took it all with good humor.
We ended up buying cupcakes instead.
Games in the backyard
Shannon chose a "stained glass"-style
painting activity for the party
Happy birthday, baby!

Redding, CA, to Nampa, ID
Our last day on the road
Some blacktail deer on the side of the road
Our expedition to get mistletoe
and a pine cone for Kyla.
Majestic Mt. Shasta
It snowed lightly the whole way home
Near Burns, OR
We were so tired, we forgot to take
the "we're home!" picture.
All in all, the trip was fantastic.
We logged a total of 2300 miles in the
minivan, all with a 2-year-old!
Having a DVD player in the car
makes a life tolerable there.
I'm thinking that this scale of a trip
is an "every five years" type of event.
I wonder where we'll go next time?
How about an East Coast road trip?
