We just returned from a week long vacation (fall break) to Colorado with a brief stop in Moab on the way. Today alone we spent 12 hours in the car with three very well behaved kids and one not so happy child. It was a long day to say the least and we’re all happy to be back in our own beds tonight.
We were gone for 9 days.
We spent well over 2,000 miles in the car.
Went to one national park, one state park and five city parks.
Carried Cannon on two hikes.
Nine fill-ups at the gas station.
Ate McDonalds just once.
Visited four states.
One throw-up incident in the car. (Poor cousin!)
One sketchy motel room.
One canceled trip to a cabin in Colorado.
Thousands of beautiful fall trees to enjoy.
Too many late nights.
Six exhausted bodies flopping into their own beds tonight with great memories from a week with friends and cousins.
Successful on all accounts.
