5,548 and counting. . . . . .


You may be wondering why I have these pictures on my blog. Well, to tell you the truth, I'm wondering why I have numbers like these in my van. Somehow Derrel talked me into going on a trip out West in our little mini van. You see, we are back now and the number above represents the total number of miles that we drove in 20 days. The number below represents the number of hours in the car. You may wonder, too, why it is only 10 hours and 28 minutes. Well our van doesn't allow triple digit hour numbers so add 100 to that number and that's the total HOURS that we were in our car. Jealous? Well, stay tuned for more pictures and fun stories about our fun LLLLOOOONNNNGGGG trip!

HA!! I'll be forever grateful that you made the trip...you were my sanity! Still wish we could have played ticket to ride...or your wii..stupid, stupid, stupid. We shoulda just said the heck to all these uplifting family shindigs...and played games instead!

WOW! You are really incredible to do a long long trip like that...with 2 kids and a newborn. Unreal! How fun for you though. I love the Lydia-isms along the side. What a hoot! Yes, we definitely have to get our drama queens together. When Tyler & Derrel are done with school we should do a 232 reunion, eh? By then our girls will be heading off to BYU though! :)
We miss you guys!

At least the clock didn't start smoking once it hit triple digits, right? I only did a 9-hour drive across Wyoming and it just about killed me-- and there were no kids in the car. You're awesome!
