This weekend the Smith girls got together for our annual (or at least we try for annual) girls weekend. My trip started with some slight difficulties... While on Donner Summit I came across slushy roads. Easy enough to drive on, but my washer fluid would not come out and I had VERY poor wiper blades, which just smeared mud all over. I literally could NOT see where I was going. The first place I stopped, the gas station was closed down, so I found a rag in my car and poured some water on it and wiped some off the mud off. It didn't take long before it was just a bad again. I finally found a gas station and cleaned off my windshield. From there the drive was quite easy. After arriving, I found out that, due to some very unforeseen and unfortunate circumstance, Matti would not be able to join us. We were all very disappointed that she could not be there with us, but we also agreed that it was very important for her to be with her family this weekend. We did, however, have a good time. We played games, visited and ate LOTS of food! This year, Veronica was able to join us for her first time! We did have one boy there, though. Sawyer is the youngest of the clan and came to add to our enjoyment!
