Road Trip

The girls and I got just got back from a 7.5 hour car ride from Arizona. It was supposed to be a 6 hour trip, but we hit traffic about 100 miles from home and sat on the freeway for an eternity. The girls did pretty good, Penelope only semi-melted down once when I ran out of Altoids. I semi-melted down a few more times. My driving leg fell asleep and never fully woke up until after we got home. For 2 hours, my foot was weird and tingly, my leg cramped, and my hip ached. It was a miserable 100 miles and home never felt so good.

The bad trip home didn't take away from the fun we had in the desert though. We visited with my aunt, uncle, and cousins for a few days over the holiday weekend and had a blast. We swam, ate dinner under the moon, stayed up late, and woke up early. The girls played hard, swam hard, and loved on their aunt Pam hard. Beatrice told me she wished Pam was her mom. 

We are home now and immediately snuffed out the empty house smell with bacon for dinner. My legs woke up while I unpacked. The girls went to bed early, dreaming of swimming no doubt. The terrible drive is a mere memory. We love our Arizona family and had a great time. Thanks Pam and family!!
