Home again hippity hop

Ah, how I wish it was only a hippity hop. That is one long ride from Atlanta to eastern NC to Atlanta. It was my first solo trip with the brood, and it was fine, but challenging. Let's move on. :)
So! Like a bullet, the zippy blue van took us on a journey to Washington NC!
A journey full of wonder: dogs, cats, guinea chicks, a snake, gnats, geese, ducks, "cool" fish (koi) and more dogs. These children rated their days by how awesome the critters were, wherever we visited. Well, and the other kids they played with too, of course.
Since I'm still recovering from the drive (oh, that drive), I will start with a quick look at Pet Number One: the kitty Felix, and my bro Isaiah's. We stopped overnight in both directions, since he lives near Charlotte, the halfway point of our trek. He has a Dog and a Cat and a fridge full of juice and bottled water. Oh yeah, and a candy jar. Delighted nieces and nephews, yes, they were.

Hi Felix! I like how you nipped at their hands when you were all done being snuggled. And then hid in the tree. They l-o-v-e-d you, and want a kitty now. Thanks Felix.
Let's play grab your toe, Uncle Zayah.
Hahaha, that's so funny! (actually, it was)
Thanks Zay! We couldn't have done it without stopping in to play and visit with you.
Next up, our first day at Lilliput "College" as Jadyn calls my Mom's little house. It will involve many creatures. Be there.
Night night...
