On day five of The Unplanned Plan, Cole tagged along with Josh at 6:30 a.m. to have coffee with the Halfway locals (Cole's favorite part of the entire trip.) while the girls and I slept in for a bit and then headed back down to Jacob's Dream to help Betty out some more in the shop. (Courtney Lee was in Heaven, organizing, hanging and pricing things.)
And then we packed up and said farewell to Halfway. (We got a really nice card in the mail from Betty today - it's hanging on the fridge.)
And then we drove to Richland. (The reverend from the Presbytarien church in Halfway is also reverend of the Methodist church in Richland.)
And stopped for lunch at a place called Annie's Diner (just because it was called Annie's Diner.)
And then we got back on the road again for our longest stretch of the drive, 40-miles of which we spent on a dirt road.
And of course, made a few pit-stops along the way.
This one was for sightseeing.
And humorous deer calls.
And this one was to get our feet wet.
Which turned into Josh and I giving the kids $10 bucks each to get in their undies and go swimming.
Looks sunny and warm, but that water was cold.
As usual, Annie was having no part in it.
And another random pit-stop, just so Josh could run circles around the truck for no apparent reason, other than to make the kids laugh.
And then we made our way to Burns for our last night of the trip. (The kids pleaded with us to spend one night in a town that was big enough to have a hotel with a pool.)
