New States Visited and Places to Go!

I mentioned the other day that Courtney traveled to 12 states for the first time while she was with us this summer. I had forgotten that Kelly Jo took pictures of the state signs as we entered.







North Dakota

South Dakota





Two of those states were new for our family too. In all of our wondering around out here we had missed Wisconsin and North Dakota. 

Now we have been to both and enjoyed them very much. We saw a lot of beautiful country in Wisconsin and North Dakota and met a bunch of friendly people in each state. I have an acquaintance that used to live in Wisconsin and he told me to drive right through because there was nothing to see. Wow! He should have opened his eyes while he lived there!

We have not visited all of the lower 48 states but now we only lack a few in the Northeast. I need to visit Delaware, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine to complete the list. 

Kelly Jo needs to visit the states above plus New Jersey and Odie needs all of them plus New Jersey and New York. Oops! Odie needs to add Michigan too. That is a shame because we have preached two revivals just a few miles from Michigan.

I am sure we will make it up to the Northeast in God's good time. Who knows, maybe next year. I want to eat Italian in Boston, Lobster in Maine and see the beauty of Vermont. I am not sure what the other places are known for but I will find out eventually.

Where have you been and where do you want to go?

    1. Yep, I would say you have been there a time or two, Sis. Laura.

      Next week would be a good time to go. We should be with two of your daughters and some of your grandchildren then.
