New Hurricane Irene Coverage!

So all this week we've been talking about how the new reporters were blowing the Hurricane waaaaaaay out of proportion, saying it was gonna be a monster storm by the time we reached Maine. It was a tropical depression by yesterday... So we decided to have a little fun at the falls... ;)

Niagara Falls USA

We stopped by Niagara Falls for a few hours yesterday, and was I was blown away by how amazing it was! (Not blown over the falls.. Lol) Niagara Falls is so beautiful, I don't even know what to say.

 So how about some pictures? Since we took ALOT of pictures I made a slide show, Enjoy. (Personally, I think my favorite pictures are the ones with a Rainbow in them- G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!)

***** I think I fixed the slideshow, but if for some reason you can't see it, Go HERE to see our pictures.****

Eastward Bound!

On the road again with the crew. Headed to Niagara Falls and then eastward til we get ready to spend the night.
Last night we really enjoyed spending the night under the stars on the shore of Lake Erie. It's beautiful here and it was a crisp 56 degrees last night. Highs just in the 70's. Doesn't get any better than this.
Can't wait to see the Falls. See you guys soon. Tab

Lots of pictures

Okay, get ready for lots of pictures from Indiana and Ohio. Lake Erie was so beautiful, I took as many pictures as I could before my camera died. (but I am charging it before we get to Niagara Falls!












Today we are getting back in the car to stop in at Niagara Falls, and then we are back on the road to Maine.
I'm sure one of my other homie's (Taylor, Ruby, Mom or Dad) will update the blog soon.

Country livin'

We arrived in Indiana late yesterday evening and spent the night with some of my moms friends, Jeanne and Bill, who were super sweet and had the cutest little country house. (and a really cute dog name Dolly too!). I got up this morning and Jeanne was getting ready to make some delicious waffles! They also let us pick abunch of fresh peppers & tomatoes.

Anyway, We're back on the road this morning, headed to Niagara Falls, NY. We probably won't get there until after dark, but I can't wait to see the falls!

Ready SET Go

Well folks, we hit the road in the morning. First to Indiana , then Niagara Falls, then Maine.

Look forward to tons of pictures and posts about our epic , fun trip. Til next time.... Tab

The Last Supper

The day we have been waiting for! The big to do! The big finale! The grand journey down the East Coast! The 4 Smiths + 1 Montes de Oca Excursion! (However, I changed my last name on Facebook...Tabatha says I am her adopted daughter for the next 6 weeks, so I figured what the heck.) 3 members of our quest will be riding their bikes and 2 will be riding in the car. Tabby, Keith and Katie are the insane ones. Me and Taylor are a little less insane.

For Our "last supper", we went to Cheddar's. From left to right, Ruby, Taylor, Keith, Tabby and Katie. 
Well, we are heading off in the morning! Wish us luck and keep checking the blog...with 5 people, somebody is bound to post an update!

I'm heeeeeeeeere!

Hey!
The sidekick of the awesome-tastic Smith family has finally arrived in Texas! I'm Ruby and I'm very excited for our trip. Taylor, Katie and I have been planning on taking a road trip from the time we were 17, 14 and 15. We are now 21, 18 and 19, but we are still excited as ever because its ACTUALLY HAPPENING!

I come from a tiny little town in Montana, so the first 2 things I noticed here were: everything is FLAT and its very BIG. And it's really warm here. As in hot. But I love it because for me to get a tan in Montana took a few hours, every few days, depending on how hot it was and I got a tan in about 15 minutes, so I thought that was pretty cool, honestly.

So yeah, I figured I'd say hi, seeing as I am a member of this great venture! Bring it on!

2 weeks left!

With only 1 week until our friend Ruby gets here and 2 weeks left until our trip we are so excited!
Today we were going to be moving the last of our furniture and stuff into the storage building however when we woke up this morning it was raining for the first time since May. (At least I think it's rain, it has been so long since I've seen it. haha)

So, I just though I would update the blog a little bit. I can't wait til I actually have amazing pictures to post on here from our epic trip. Our first stop will be Niagara Falls, So I'm sure you will see quite a few waterfall pictures! :)

Later, -Katie

3 weeks to go

Hard to believe we only have 3 more weeks to swelter in the extreme heat Texas is having this year. Yea, no more watering the grass, running the a/c, etc. I will surely not miss that :).

Looking forward to milder weather.
