Heading Out...

So we leave for vacation tomorrow (actually, later today since it's 1:30 in the morning). I never can sleep the night before a big trip, and I have had the car packed up for hours. A month ago I wasn't looking forward to this trip at all, but as it has approached my mind has totally changed. I am so excited! And so is Timothy. Tonight he asked me why I was taking his cars from his room. I told him it was to pack them in our car for our big trip. His eyes got huge, and he said, "Because it's almost FRIDAY?" Oh he is SO cute sometimes.

He is happy for the same reasons I am happy. We are about to see a lot of people we care about. Tons of family (not just immediate family, but as far out as 3rd cousins). We're also seeing family from New Hampshire that we LOVE and haven't seen in 4 years. And as if that weren't enough, we get to see 3 dear friends of mine: Sheila, Tonya, and Christi. Oh, I can't wait.

So I'm making a commitment to have a daily summary of the next 16 days. You don't want to miss how exciting of a drive it is through AZ, NM, and West TX, do you? I may not get to a computer every day in order to upload it, but I'll write the old fashioned way and then post 2-3 days worth if I have to.
Texas or Bust!

Have a great trip - can't wait to see all of your adventures (and yes, I agree, driving through West Texas IS an adventure!)

How many miles are you driving? We just got back from a 1,000 mile journey to NC. I'll be praying for no puke...oh, the prayers of mothers!
