Horton's Vacation

Before my parents and sisters family left for vacation we gathered to celebrate Megan's birthday.  One of the things she received was a stuffed Horton.  Who was promptly named Hootin Horton.  My 17 year old niece commented on how much she loves the Horton Hears A Who book.  Megan decided that her new friend should go on vacation with Katie. 

Thanks to technology we received regular text and pictures of Horton's adventures. Horton is very outgoing and was making new friends before they were on the road.


Ready, set... on the go!


Good bye Indiana, hello Kentucky.


Good bye Kentucky, hello Tennessee!


Finally at the hotel and settled in for the night.


Good morning Alabama!


Hmm... doesn't everyone love a muffin for snack?!


Unpacking at the beach house.


Many afternoons spent in the pool.


Sending birthday wishes to Megan.


A long distance party in honor of the birthday girl!


A home cooked meal by Grammi.


Horton had a great time away with family, but says there is no place like home!


We had lots of fun receiving text message about all of the fun Horton had on vacation.  Not only was it fun to receive all of the pictures of Horton it became a great learning moment as Megan keep a journal.

Thanks for being such a good sport Katie!  It meant a lot to Megan to feel connected to your vacation.

May your day filled with joy and contentment!
