This was one of those trips we look forward to. We as a family enjoy these long drives. Although we aimed to get out at 11 AM we got delayed till 3:20 PM. Yup, things just happen! No excuses… Usually, it just takes 3 to 4 hours for us to reach Roseburg but this time, we beat that record. It took us close to 6 hours to reach the Koi Show site. Even with the bad traffic, we managed to have a peaceful drive. The first couple of hours all the kids slept which was good because we were bumper to bumper those few hours and the next few hours we all relied on music. We as parents got to experience some of the new trends from our kids. Oh boy, was that an experience or what? Time does fly. The changes are hard to believe. Our oldest has been asking for a cell phone. I don’t know if I’m ready to have that gadget to take over. Now a day’s at least he will tell me where he is and what he is up to. When the cell phone is here I don’t think I will hear his voice as I hear now. I’m scared if it’s going to be more question-answer conversation thereafter.
