Out like a lamb…

This is the last post on this blog, to follow our roadtrip adventure on our new blog click here

We are all packed up and out of the trailer, all our stuff is in this storage container and we are house-sitting at Ana & Lee;s house, feeding their chickens and their cat. We brought Thomas along with us as they are going to cat sit him while we are on our way to Phoenix and back.

We celebrated the Spring Equinox on March 19th with a fire, a story, an egg hunt and a potluck.

Ambiana and Kariah, Ana and Lee’s daughter whose house we are staying at.

Gamma finally made it up to see us. We hadn’t seen her since Halloween! We were very happy to see her again and we had lots of fun including lunch at McGillacuddy’s Irish Pub and Ambiana’s fiddle recital
