Down the Highway

From Rodeo Queens to Waleeda at Walmart. From ID to WY. 


They LOVED us in Farr West, UT (actual name). We garnered lots of smiles and greetings...not a rude comment in the restaurant. 


We stopped in Rock Springs.....wow....not real pretty.....not a lot to see as we drove...but Jared thought it was beautiful. ::grin:: 


The early stop is refreshing. The kids swam. We got all our laundry done. Michael and I went to the Walmart deli and brought home dinner to eat in the room. We replenished our snack supply for the rest of the trip. The girls are snuggled in our room watching Little House Episodes. Michael is working on some paperwork he needs for a referral.  We will arrive in Denver tomorrow night.  Josiah and Jamin hope to arrive late on the 30th and Bre will arrive on the 1st.  We'll have 4 days with all of us together. That will be heavenly. 

The heat has been wonderful. 

I am contemplating a trip to the hot tub.

Glad you enjoyed Rock Springs, WY. The most barren place in America. If it weren't for the interstate and oil it would be abandoned. I actually took Julie there on purpose last year so she could see that I wasn't exagerating about how bad it was.

Wait, how did I let you pass by without saying Hi? You stopped in Farr West? That's only a dozen miles or so from us...

One of my favorite things since moving to Utah is that I'm not the only mom in the grocery store with 4 kids hanging onto my cart.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Roy - too funny. I keep telling Michael, as we begin to plan for retirement...that I like pretty but I want OPEN SPACE....he still hasn't quite teasing me about Rock Springs - which I deemed the ugliest place we've been. LOL

Sarah - I had no clue how we were driving....we've sort of been surviving day to day. If we go back the same route and it looks like we'll be in Farr West again - I'll let you know. Maybe you should email your phone number to me in case. LOL

OK, I sent you a message on facebook with my contact info. It would be awesome to meet up, but I understand completely if it doesn't work out. I figure I'm going to meet you some day in real life because you and your family keep showing up in my dreams--at least three times now!
