Its Memorial Day weekend, and Lauren and I planned to drive down to McAlester to see my dad and step mom; unfortunately Lauren had to stay home and work at the last minute so the padawan and I went mom-less. This was my first road trip with Ruu solo and she was the suspiciously perfect angel she always is. For road tunes we listened to The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Ruu was the perfect audience, exclaiming and gasping at all the right moments. The trip was great overall, but we both missed Lauren.
On the way home we were treated to a beautiful fiery sunset.
