A tisket, a tasket, we did all this for Baskets :)

This weekend was the first of a usual semi-annual trip to Dresden, Ohio. For those of you that don't know why anyone would travel there, let me just tell you. Have you ever heard of Longaberger baskets?! Well thats why we go. Christy Wiley planned a trip this year, and we usually take a 15 passenger van, and try to get a Uhaul(yes we buy that much) or figure out a way to get everything the 5 hour trip back to Virginia. This year my father in law agreed to take his trailer for us to fill right up. Haha and he doesn't have just any trailer, he has a 40 foot enclosed car trailer!! So me, Betsy, my sister in law Lori(she was a Dresden virgin) and 14 other women packed up and headed out of town at 5am on Saturday morning. About 4 bathroom breaks later we arrived in Ohio to start our shopping. We shopped all day, and then had a yummy dinner at the Longaberger restaruant where they serve you on all longaberger pottery ;) Fun times. We finished the night off by a few hours shopping at Kohls, and then headed back to the hotel to get some sleep before heading out early for Downtown Dresden. We had an awesome time, alot of laughs, and came back with an almost full trailer ;) Here are some pics of the trip...
