Bet you thought you’d never hear from me again! Well, it’s a long story, but I’m back in California with Steve and Lynn Brazen. You may remember that I was planning on flying to Mexico for a vacation when I last wrote. Well, there was some big mix up on the border and they held me there for months! Finally, they sent me back to California where I plan to spend the summer, which is not a bad thing since there’s lots to see here. Last week I did something really fun and amazing. I joined the Brazens on a hike through the Calaveras Big Trees state park. Yikes are those giant sequoia redwoods ever huge! I’m sending a couple photos and when I fly back to IA, I’ll bring a brochure.

Talk with you again after my next adventure!!
I had a great time visiting the Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas. This area in Texas has a lot of history. I saw the daily Longhorn cattle drive happen and got to listen to live music. I couldn’t believe how big the Longhorns were! It was very cool to see them in person. Everyone was wearing cowboy hats and boots. It was also very hot. The temperature was 100 degrees and sunny, so it felt nice to get into air conditioning. We shopped for souvenirs and ate delicious Mexican food.
I took your ducky in my car and ran errands, its moving onto someone new!
thanks kylee for letting me help with your journey.
i was in winona minnesota!
Spending time in Cottontown, Tennessee! We have been enjoying the nice weather and today I get to mow the yard before heading back to Minneosta. It has been fun!
Avalee’s ducky spent some time in Minnesota watching baseball, playing video games and helping take care of sick people in a hospital. Now ducky is headed back to Avalee after traveling for quite awhile!
I am having fun in Zeeland, Michigan. I have been on lots of rides with Angela Huesman, she is a friend of some relatives of Avalee’s. I have been to her office and got to go on vacation with her to Chicago! We had a great time at the Field Museum but the T-Rex bones scared me so I didn’t get in the picture :(. On my way to MN next!
Busy helping Angela at work.
I was too scared to be this close to the T-Rex. I ran out of the picture when Angela took it.
