An Unexpected Trip

The last few weeks have been a bit overwhelming around our house. One thing after another, good and bad, have been popping up. So after about a dinner's worth of conversation, we have decided that we need to go on a little vacation. It's kind of crazy for us since we just got back from Florida at the end of January.

I'm used to having months to prepare, to plan and pack! I've had like 2 weeks! We are leaving this week and are excited about getting away. We will be going to Arizona this time and we will be driving instead of flying. Driving is always better for us and we would rather drive than fly anywhere.

We will be leaving early one morning so the girls can sleep until our first stop, which will be Kansas. We have some cousins who we are anxious to see. By the end of the first night we should be just past Albuquerque. Our first day goal is always around 12 hours or so and we love stopping in New Mexico.

I will be scheduling some posts for the next couple of weeks while we are away, Thursday Thirteen must go on! I will be near a computer once we reach our destination but I hope to just be popping in. I'll get to comments and emails as time will allow, so I'll apologize now if I am a little late in getting back to anyone.

On a side note, Greg and I took another photo hunting trip this last weekend and we were able to capture some wonderful photos. Some of them have been posted to Flickr. I'm anxious for the warmer (but not hot) weather to be here. Being out and walking around, searching for a great capture is so much fun. The girls love being outdoors too!

So here's to a nice long, unexpected vacation and a hopeful outlook once we return. I hope all of you have a wonderful first week of Spring!
