After 10 long days, we are finally home. We went to Albuquerque, NM for my brother Jason's wedding. We left on Christmas day and got back last night. Did I mention that we drove? Yeah- that was fun. I could write a book about the trip, but instead I'll just show you some of the highlights in pictures!
These are the states we went through. I'm missing Alabama and Oklahoma. It was hard to take the picture while driving!
On the way out, we went through a 100 mile wide snowstorm. The kids loved it, but Dave, not so much. It doesn't look heavy here, but it was.
This is in Texas. It was very cold, but the jackets were locked in the back of the truck. That's a long story, but we couldn't get them out because we were afraid we couldn't shut it again!
Our little man chillin' in the truck.
We had some beautiful views while driving.
We saw the largest cross in the Northern hemisphere.
We passed through cattle country and smelled some stanky cows.
Finally, after 21 hours in the truck, we arrived. This is my brother's cute house.
And this is his view!
The cousins are so excited to see each other!
And the pre-teens head straight for the computer!
Maria & Sierra loved seeing their Papa.
We just loved the scenery!
Just kidding! We loved spending time with the family.
Here is Dave with Jenny, my brother's new wife!
My boys hanging out at the rehearsal dinner.
My mom and I eating her famous chicken and yellow rice. They cooked it for 45 people!!
Here I am with John, my brother's step-dad, and Everett, who is my brother's brother-in-law, but not mine. It's confusing! Jason actually has a sister, Jen, who is a month younger than me. Ha ha! I don't have any pics of the two of us- I need to get some.
Here's my mom with Jenny.
Uncle Tim was being the king of the world with his nieces!
We went out to eat a lot.
And we did a lot of sight seeing, both in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
Did I mention that it was cold out there? This was the typical morning temp. It rarely got above freezing and the wind was sometimes up to 30 mph!
Next up- the wedding!
