So we are back. We had a really nice time. The RV rental went well. The RV is very loud inside and everything shimmies and shakes and can really drive you mental. So the first day was a bit crazy. We couldn’t pick up the RV until 1 PM. We get to the place and there are 5 people in front of us and they tell us to come back in an hour to an hour and a half. So we didn’t even get checked in until 3:00. After we get that all settled they inform us that we have to wait another 30 to 45 minutes because they just fixed a crack in the windshield. We didn’t even get back home until 4 PM and by the time we got everything packed and on the road it was 5 PM! Already dark and FREEZING in the back of the RV. The kids were bundled up and I was very tense. We decided to go a different route this year. We were afraid of snow in Gallup, NM. Well, apparently we went through a time continuum and time stopped altogether. It took us about 1000 hours to get to Texas. We actually drove from 9AM to 4:30 AM on the 2nd day and we were STILL not at our destination.

MAJOR Monkey butt.

But we did arrive in Tyler, TX eventually. The kids had a blast and I got to meet a cousin of Jeff’s who I fell in love with. She and her husband were awesome and I wanted to be with them 24/7.
We came home the old way and made it back in two days. We hit a lot of snow in AZ but were in our own bed that night. Sleeping in your own bed after a certain amount of time s almost a religious experience. The next day was spent cleaning out the RV which smelled a lot like armpit. At some time while driving home Alyssa decided she wanted a pickle and didn’t close the jar tight enough and it spilled all over the mini fridge. So the whole place smelled like armpit and pickle. Parmpit.
I have about 23,498 pictures to upload so give me a few days. There is actually a link to my mother in laws pictures on my picture page in the top right corner of this blog. That should hold you. FYI: Samra was amazing! She slept on her pillow between Jeff and me on the ride and ran and ran until she passed out on the pasture
