we headed out for our spring break this week...this is the "toiletry bag" you get with 3 girls!
jilly enjoying her gas station treat...nothing like a little twinkie on the road!
i thought i pretty much ate my way across new mexico but i guess i slept a little bit of it too...cameron is a machine at the wheel, he just keeps going & going...funny how all our heads are turned to the same side.
cameron's favorite random stop so far for obvious reasons...
things we are luving...arizona sunshine, the pool!, friends: janae, sterling, johnny & linda, jamie, sarah, scotty & andrea, wish we could have seen more of our old AZ gang & ward, the girls luv sleeping on the hide-away beds in the hotel rooms, i am sick of trail mix, have i mentioned the sun?, what did we do before dvd players in cars (and ipods too), a great mani / pedi, being together!
ps...forgot to mention we totally missed our chance to sleep in a WIG-WAM...
it's like a pit in my stomach, how did i not plan better.
we are on a road trip...utah to arizona to new mexico to colorado...to home! this is really our "first" spring break trip, seeing that savannah' is only in first grade and cam has a more flexible schedule now. i don't remember taking official spring break trips growing up. our BIG trip was our summer trip when we drove to utah - we lived in indiana. we drove it in our station wagon...me, my 4 sisters and mom & dad. it rocked.
*do hotel bed comforters freak / gross you out?
yes. no question.
*do you always have to get a treat at the gas station when you stop for gas?
i don't think so...i even packed great treats this time and also pb & j with bread. but then it's like you run in to go potty and those darn isles are calling your name...and the crushed ice is too much sometimes. but we have been pretty good...so far: twinkies, skittles, and a pack of gum are all the treats the girls have gotten on the "pit stops". and pretty much hit up every sonic along the way as well...did i mention i luv crushed ice.
*does your conversation ever go blank / dull with your driver and how to survive it?
we always start out strong...we are rocking the convo, laughing, singing michael jackson...we could write a book we start coming up with such good insights, memories, current events, future plans / goals and then it hits like a fly against our windshield. flat. dead. we know it is there (not the fly, the silence) but we just keep driving. i wanted to get one of those "300 questions" to being a better couples book but then i just decided i would instead tell cam, "hey i am just gonna rest my eyes" and then discretely catch up on my sleep. cheerio.
