Road trippin'!

Okay, so we had planned for this post to go up on Sunday for Madi's birthday, but it didn't. Momma blames Blogger, we blame Momma. Who knows. Anyway, here is our slightly belated pawticipation.

Our good furiend Madi the Diva Cat is celebrating her birthday today! She is 16 years old! That's a big milestone to reach. Our kitty sister Pigeon turned 16 in January, and she's always lording over us how very grown-up and mature she is. (WHATEV!) Anyways, the most impawtant part of turning 16 is that you can DRIVE! So Madi said that she wanted to celebrate her 16th birthday with a big Blogville ROAD TRIP!!

We're supposed to tell stories about a big road trip that we've done. Well, Jessie and I ride in the car a lot, but it's usually just to the dogtor or the park or to see Grandma & Grandpa or Auntie. Not really big road trips. In fact, we've only done one real road trip in our lives -- two years ago when we went to the furst Blogville Awesome Retreat!

We were SO excited to get in the car and head out in the early morning with our Momma. Jessie kept primping because she was going to meet Stanley in the furs at last.

It was very exciting! We touched our paws outside the state of Texas for the very furst time, and we crossed the mighty Mississippi River!

We spent a lot of time helping Momma navigate so she wouldn't get lost.

We discovered that Kentucky doesn't actually have blue grass -- it's green! Who knew?

AND we stayed in a hotel room for the furst time!! (We actually stayed in two -- one at the BAR and one on our drive home.)

It was a really exciting adventure, but we were exhausted by the time we finally got home!

We hope you enjoyed the story of our road trip in honor of Madi's birthday! You should go read all the other pawesome adventures!
