Finally made it!

Well we finally hit the road! And what better way to start a trip than with a 12 drive straight through. Unfortunately we couldn’t leave ABQ until after our appointment with TMO which didn’t end until around 11. On the way we stopped in Four Corners since I have wanted to go there for as long as I can remember. They are building a new monument so we weren’t actually able to go on it but we could walk in a circle and go into all 4 states. The old monument was in the wrong spot this whole time.

We got into Idaho around 12:30 am, and didn’t get to bed until after 1 in the morning. Luckily Grandma and Grandpa had beds all set up for us and we got to get right in them! That was Friday. Saturday morning I got up early (well we all did) and I rode in the van with Grandma to take Aunt Billie to the airport. That was better than not seeing her at all even though it was only about 2 hours. The rest of the day we just hung out, the boys played out in the yard and chased the kitties, and Grandma took Cody to a carnival for Pioneer Day and he got his face painted and got to play some games.  Brandon also took Cody out on the 4 wheeler for a few rides. We were going to stay up for fireworks but went to bed early instead.

Our original plan was to stay 3 nights but could only stay for 2 because we had to cut the trip down. Sunday we just hung out some more and left at 11 to head to Washington on a 9 hour drive.
