battle creek

On April 26th Alice took her first road trip – all the way to Battle Creek!  She loves riding in the car (thankfully), so the hour and a half trip was no big deal for her.

 

This trip was extra special for a few reasons:

  1. It was her first trip in the car longer than around town.
  2.  She got to meet my side of the family.
  3. All of my dad’s family was in one place for the first time in forever.
  4. All three great-grandkids were there, which is probably one of the only times that will ever happen.

((I don’t think this warrants being a #5, but we also got Ritzee burgers on the way home.  This is momentous because every time we go to Battle Creek we drive by Ritzee and Derek talks about getting their 69cent hamburgers, but we never did – until that day.  We got olive burgers and ate them in the parking lot while I fed Alice.  It was a mess and awkard but very yummy olive burgers!))

 

It was a fun trip and I am thankful that Alice has family that loves her.
