Good friends are people you can call while on a road trip that eventually leads through their town and they tell you to come for dinner. An hour later you show up and they proceed to empty out their pantry and fridge, light up the grill and next thing you know you are so full they have to roll you out of the house so you can complete the last half of your road trip.
We originally called them to ask them where a good place to stop to eat near State College was. Turns out their house is a good place to eat in that area! :)
It was fun to see their house that we hadn't seen yet, and the kids were just in their glory having that unexpected time with friends.
We then drove over a mountain in Tyrone that was covered in thick thick fog. Dan had to tell me when the bends and turns were coming by watching the gps. It was so freaky. I was driving SO slow. I didn't think we would ever make it to his parents.
We did though. Whew! It was crazy. The kids slept through the whole thing. Thankfully it wasn't pouring down rain at that point. That came later. It was just a light mist on the mountain.
Good times :)
