Oops out of order this is really Day 1--The Drive There

 Ah, just looking at these photos makes me relaxed.  Seriously, this was the best vacation EVER!!!  So needed and so perfect.  Happy days.  So where to start?  We left Monday morning, bright and early--4 AM--and headed out. After going to bed at midnight when we finally had the van packed.  And the drive went heavenly. The kids were AWESOME.  I gave them some new coloring books, pencil crayons, sketchpads, and a few toys.  They were super happy with them, and colored the day away.  When we hit Farmington, NM, we were supposed to stop for the night, pitch our tents and sleep.  We decided to keep going. We made it to Cortez, CO around 1 or 2 AM (I can't remember now, it might have only been midnight) and we decided to stop on the side of the road and sleep.  I don't know how much sleep Leo got, but I slept fine till about 4 AM and then Leo woke me up and we hit the road again.  That meant we made it to my parents really early in the afternoon.  I think it was only 3 PM, might have been earlier.  This is all so hazy now.  But we had some time to unload some stuff and relax a bit.  Can you tell we were anxious to get there?  Then we pulled out our trusty redneck slip and slide and the kids had a blast.  

 Molly, Clover and Jubal were all born the same year.  They weren't being cooperative taking pictures together.

So excited to see Grandma!!!

Cute Oskar.

I stole these pictures from Lindsay. Sorry for the repeats.  But I wanted them too. And I think I deleted some photos from my camera when I uploaded a couple of days on Mom's computer, and I think I only copied Lindsay's photos back to my dropbox, so until Mom learns to use Dropbox (never), I'm stuck with only Lindsay's photos.  But that's okay, because they're really good.
