They walked, and walked, aaaaaand walked.

The Trek was a huge success from the Shaker point of view.  My instincts were correct ... my boys are part pioneer.  They loved every minute of it and Gary was ready to go again as soon as their journey was over.

Look at these cute pictures! 
Click on them to enlarge ... and see my boys right up front.

Jake was assigned to the Free Family with Ma & Pa Free.

Garrison was assigned to the Harvey Family with Ma & Pa Harvey.

And Gary (who is hiding in the back) was assigned to the Hutchinson Family.

If we are ever counseled to walk across the plains again ... I will have no problem sending my boys men.  They will most likely have to send for me later ... by airplane ... accompanied by a soft pillow, a blanket and plenty of carbohydrates mingled with some protein.  Amen.

Those picture are so great! I'm with you though....send for me later cause there is definitely a reason I wasn't born a pioneer!

I'd have to send my Megan with you on the plane as well. She once accused me of treating her like a pioneer when she had to walk to the bus stop.
