We've just driven from Albany, Oregon to Flagstaff, Arizona. Even with stopping in Orem to visit family, we've spent hours and hours and hours in the car. THANK GOODNESS my sweet husband upgraded our van a week before we left. If we hadn't had the dvd player that you can also hook the gamecube up to, things would have been uuug-lee!
All in all, it was a mostly uneventful trip so far. We did see the balloon lift off in Provo, Utah as part of the Freedom Festival. And Glen Canyon, at the beginning of the Grand Canyon, was VERY impressive. More pictures later.
And family. We are spending this weekend with my family. My brother and sisters and their spouses and their children. Really, there's nothing like family. It makes driving about 24 hours total worth it.
And that's the other side.
