Across the USA in 33 days

Road trips are the best. We went on this one so my brother and I could compete at the National Poultry and Egg Conference in the avian bowl competition. (Did I forget to mention I’m very active in 4-H?) The competition was held in Louisville, Kentucky. We got on a tour bus and visited Churchill Downs

and the Louisville Slugger museum and factory.

At the competition we got second place. Here’s a few pictures of my team and me.

After the competition we got to visit friends in Virginia and North Carolina. That was awesome. Virginia is super beautiful (here’s a pretty picture from a walk we took, the cover picture is also from VA)

and in North Carolina I slid headfirst down the stairs on an air mattress and made a hole in the wall with my head (here’s a pretty picture of the hole).

We also visited relatives all along the way and stopped in Mount Rushmore

I was excited to drive through Montana, the setting of my next book.

Beautiful, isn’t it? Well, time for the writing to commence now.
