Summer Road Trip Part 2

September 2, 2013

Continued from Summer Road Trip Part 1

I saw friends that I haven’t seen in so many years, but we fell right back into our fun, easy friendship like no time had passed at all.



Indigo took this one of us and I’m so wishing I’d taken one of the two of them. They hit it off right away, like I knew they would.

The next morning, Nate and I did a rehearsal with the musicians at The Rock Church in Mountain View, CA. The very first person I saw was my dear friend Samantha! I wanted to weep and laugh all at once. I think I did do that. We played in the band at church together for YEARS.

Oh man, it did my heart good to see her.


And then Stanley! It was just too much. The best day ever.


And so many more. I had a non-stop grin on my face for days.

The church was great—so welcoming and kind. We just loved it there.

Mindy…Greyley fell hard for her and I knew she would. Even though she’s all grown up, her personality is still as huge as ever.


And then the next day, Deanna!


(This dress made the rounds. I washed it, I promise.) 😉

Such a good visit.

From her we went straight to see my brother from a different mother/father. Rudain.


We visited while Greyley drove the 4-wheeler. She was having a blast and being all careful.

And then Rudy said, “Come on, I’ll teach you how to drive it fast.”

This is a nice picture before she turned it on its side…


Everyone wants to know where that picture is.

Um, I was running out to my baby with heels on…in the dirt…not taking time to take a picture.

She was fine. She and Rudain were both laughing when we got to them. It took my heart too long to recover.

That night, we went to my nephews’ house and had the best time. Never enough time, but always sweet…


They just all click.

Treasured times.

    I am loving this road trip! I love every precious picture and story. I am thankful no one was hurt in the turnover. For future note, best car Volvo xc90 I’ve tried and you really can’t turn them over…..;)
    I am hoping that some music is brewing in between the lines and that there will be new songs, or new videos or both.

    I think I would like a copy of Touring With the Sabins, or whatever you are going to call your book. It would be a perfect coffee table book, your stories and pictures, I’d order several….;)

    Can’t wait for the next installment of your summer road trip!
