From Albuquerque we drove 9 hours to a small town called Duncan, Oklahoma to stay with my Grandma known by all as Mama Belle. It was a fairly uneventful drive with the exception of Athelie throwing up for the first time 2.5 hours into the drive. We were on a busy highway when it happened and pulled over as quickly as possible. She was pretty shaky afterwards so I held her while Marc cleaned up, however the car still stunk the rest of the way to OK. I finally had to change cars half way there because it was so bad. Josh drove the second half of the way with toilet paper stuck up and out his nose to try to block the smell. Poor little thing. She is still talking about "spit up at Mimi's house." I think she was traumatized. Plus, she didn't get her appetite back until after we got home.
We got to stay at Mama Belle's house while we were there, so we got lots of good visit time with her. The girls both snuggled with her. We really enjoyed our time with her. She is such a blessing to so many. She truly is the matriarch of our family. We love you Mama Belle.
All worn out
