Road Trip. . .

I finally made it to Paint Party Friday , I've missed so many since the beginning... Château Bubbly all round then dear Party goers....

This is for my Baby Girl...
My Baby Girl... (who is nearly 17yrs old - who will always be my baby girl even when she's 50 - get used to it) is off to America on Sunday with her Dad for two weeks.... they plan to drive from Houston to Las Vegas, well Dad plans to drive, baby girl is just going to enjoy the view and no doubt will be plugged into her music the whole way, so she won't be able to hear her Dad moaning about driving for hours and hours and hours.....

Map of home - Butch & The Kid are on the cinema tickets that we get here - all things to remind her, to not fall totally in Love with The States and come home..... to Mummy....
Again map of home with Moi, Toby the dog and Pickle the cat... waiting for Baby Girl to get home.... we are going to miss her.... pass the tissues someone....

I know what you mean about our babies growing up so fast. Nice tributes you've done.

This is so sweet to make for her. Texas to Vegas....hmmm not my idea of the most beautiful parts of the US. The odds are in your favor.

These are wonderful, you daughter will love them (if she hasn't already seen them). I wish her a safe trip and mom she will be home before you know it.

These are so sweet! The US is a great place but I'm sure there's nothing here that can compete with her loving family at home. She's going to miss you, too.

Sweet! I love how your Baby Girl inspires you. She reminds me of my little girl (who's 14 but will forever be my baby as well). :)

The road trip one is my favorite! Great job!!

Anne said...

These are so sweet! She might not admit it, but I'm sure she'll miss you, too! And be happy to be home. She'll have lots to share when she gets back, too!
