Well, we made it home on Monday from our crazy 15 day adventure out West! I am not sure how we did it but we had an AMAZING time. It went way better than I could have ever imaged. It was our first big trip where we planned every stop ourselves and did so much travelling on our own. We were in a different place just about every night which is overwhelming. I was nervous about how it would go but it was awesome! The kids did awesome. So thankful to be at the point where they can carry their own bags and things. They were the perfect ages for this trip. We had so much fun, got to see so many amazing places and enjoyed time together as a family. Couldn't ask for more out of a trip! We are settled in back home now having put away the suitcases and washed 10 loads of laundry. But we have lots of great memories that I can't wait to share over the next few days.
One of the most daunting tasks was figuring out how to pack for 4 people for 15 days in all sorts of different weather scenarios. We were going to be travelling from cold to hot and lots in between. Somehow we managed to do it. 4 suitcases all weighing 49 pounds and 4 backpacks held everything we needed!
I looked over while we were walking around the Denver airport and saw Brown Puppy was along for the trip. I didn't know Ben had brought him! Love that sweet boy!
