We were gone for twelve days. Seven of those days were spent in the car. Phew, home has never looked so good.
We were blessed to visit with many of our California relatives this Christmas break. In the five full days we were there, we moved at a frantic pace, making the most of our time to visit with as many people as possible. It was a joy – and also exhausting. (By the way, we wanted to hold Meet-and-Greets along the way there but our schedule and energy didn’t permit. So sad!)
On our way home we surprised our boys by taking them to the Grand Canyon. Matt and I had not been there before either, so we were all in for a treat! After a few hours spent marveling at the canyon, we headed to surprise our boys by taking them to the Four Corners. Would you believe – we drove up and the gate was closed and locked. It was so disappointing! I told Matt not to even tell me how far we had driven out of our way for that. We had planned to put each of our boys in a different corner/state and get a fun picture! Ah well…
We are so thankful for a safe trip and a wonderful time with so many loved ones. We’ll spend the next few days settling back in and trying to get caught up. Let’s not talk about the leak in the basement we came home to. Eh, could be worse, right? ;)
