I have a charm that says... Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone.
Well, I'm living now for sure!
I'm pretty sure everyone knows by now how I feel about pulling a trailer. I have done it several times and I always hate it... (the fact that I hit a car with the boat trailer in a parking lot is always there, in the back of my mind, making me uncomfortable.) I'm also fairly certain they can come off that little ball at anytime and go cruising down the highway on their own. (The fact that I have been there when one did indeed come off the little ball and was hanging on only by a small chain only confirms my fears...) So it only stands to reason that I would not want to drive a motor home... I can imagine all kinds of scenarios that could take place with me behind the wheel,
(I'd much prefer to be lounging on the bed when some mishap should take place...)
Well, as luck should have it, I found myself behind the wheel of Dumbo (the rv) this weekend...
I just grabbed the wheel and off Sam and I took. Dave the Driver pulling the trailer with a truckful behind us and my sisters for my pilot car, we were off to Barn House only a few hours behind schedule...So Dave had some tail light issues to resolve and I never saw the pilot car... (they couldn't keep up)
Thankfully I had a cell phone, since the sisters/pilot car had the directions, which included a detour. I realize how comforted all the other drivers were seeing a crazed driver weaving down the interstate screaming on a phone, which I later realized was not only unsafe but also illegal in Washington... yes I am a regular law breaker, I have also been known to run with scissors on occasion...
We did all eventually make it to Barn House and I might also say we were not the last ones there for a change!
I wish I had words that would convey the most magical time we had, if you were there you know what I am talking about. It has taken 4 days for me to finish this post because I honestly can't describe with words what makes the Barn House Events so special.
When you compliment Joe or Jermonne about the fabulous job they have done, they will invariably say, its the people who are our vendors, its the wonderful customers who support us... But if you have ever worked with them, it is obvious that they leave no detail to chance, they go the extra mile in every conceivable way, they are incredible hosts not to mention they are just darn fun to be around. I'm pretty sure that is the magic that surrounds Barn House.
I took several pictures, and I know Tiffany, Robin, and Kim were busy capturing the many wonderful moments! I have seen their posts
(as I am evidently the last person to get mine done)
Be sure you check out their blogs because their photos are amazing!
I love the friends you meet at the shows, this is my sweet baby friend Oliver, with his Grandpa.
We met him at Farm Chicks.
More little Sparrow's and Oliver's brother, having some fun in the sun.
