your trip
Looks like you are making good time on this trip. i did not realize that you would cross the Missouri River 5 times from St. Louis to eastern Nebraska.

Lookin Good
Well by the look at those faces on the pictures, I'd say you folks are really having fun. Lots of very big smiles. Hope the Birthday Party in St Louis was festive. Keep your eyes peeled for tornadoes, there have been a few out in the area you are going toward. Here in Tiger GA it is still in the 90's and dry. We are praying for your travel mercies. Thanks for the great pictures.

Apology to Will
Will, if my memory serves me well I wrote yesterday that you had pretty legs. What I should have said was that you had nice legs. Pls forgive the misnomer. (Pretty = feminine. Nice = masculine.) Justin: It is nice to get to 'know' you this way. Maybe some day in person. You are doing a good job on this blog. I want you to know that your grandparents are tops to Lloyd and me. You probably already know that. Have a safe trip tomorrow.

You folks are putting in a lot of miles but looks like you are getting to see a lot of the good old USA. Have lots of fun and thanks for keeping us up-to-date./

Justin, it looks as tho you are being fed well by Marge, lucky guy! I agree with Evelyn a lot of nice lookin legs going on there!! This is so fun being able to follow you all and see whats up, thanks for the update. I hope you find some nice cooler weather as you go, so far we are not so lucky.

Love the pictures! Looks like you're having fun, Justin! Enjoy! :)

Looks like you're seein' an awful lotsa stuff out there, Mr. Mitchell(s) (both of ya ^_^) and Nana of course (:P). It must be neat to follow the Oregon Trail. I'm sure it's a LOT easier now than it was a few hundred years ago, though. Keep up the travel, and stay safe! I love you guys! :D

Looks like you are enjoying your trip so far. You will have something to tell your grandchildren about traveling West with your grandparents!! You not only have nice legs --- you are a handsome young man. Your chicken and rice looks good, too! Mary Parsley

Already enjoying pictures of the start of your journey. I'm a bit envious!

nice legs
Will, I just reread Evelyn's comment from yesterday. I thought she was talking about Justin. I sure wouldn't say you were a handsome YOUNG man, also. Sorry about that!
