Every year for either Thanksgiving or Christmas, we travel from Kansas to Texas to visit family. This year was extra special because we invited our friends Sha Sha and Jinbo to go with us. Because four people and two big dogs would not fit in any of our cars, we rented an SUV. Maya and Pierson rode comfortably and safely in the back cargo area. They got to wear their dog seat belts. But because the Ford did not have cargo rings, I had to use two connecting tethers and reach around to the seat belts in the back seats so that they could be hooked in. Connecting the seat belt tethers to the seat belts did not interfere with our ability to use the seat belts. Here are some pictures from our trip. And check out our other blog,, for the rest of the pictures.

Filling up for gas in Kansas. Notice the top left corner. It is supposed to say, “Local Checks Only” but someone scraped off the C and the arms of the E. What can I say, we live in a college town.

Maya & Pierson in the cargo area of the SUV resting for the long long trip. Because of traffic, the trip ended up taking us 14 hours instead of 11.

Maya & Pierson ride in the back of the Ford Escape that we rented for our trip.

We stopped at a rest stop in Oklahoma.

This is at a rest stop in Texas.

I sure do miss the Texas sunsets. We are in north Texas, still a long ways away from my family’s house in Kyle, Texas (about 40 minutes south of Austin).

Finally home! Clockwise from left to right – Pierson, Odie (the bird in the background), me, Sha Sha, and my niece Elizabeth. Pierson is quite curious about little baby Elizabeth.

My nephew Bennett is kissing his little sister Elizabeth while Maya & Pierson look on curiously.
