This was the end result of the trip: 3,870 miles, 127 gallons of gas, and 66 hours in the car! It was a fun time filled with great memories!

The next day we split up and sent the kids with the grandparents and the cousins as they went to a wildlife park. They had a great time. We went with Brent, Heidi, Rebekah and Bethany to Jerome, AZ. It is an old mining town. We took a tour of a museum and took in the sights. I think the best part of the trip was driving there. Brent decided to take a scenic route and it took us across a lot of primitive dirt roads up and down mountain sides. Needless to say, there were a few stressed out females in the vehicle!
It was a beautiful day to be at the Grand Canyon! Spent a lot of time here as we took shuttle busses to different lookouts. It was great!
We left Texas after spending some time with our friends the Langes and made our way to Arizona. We broke up the trip with a stay in New Mexico.
This was a cool storm in Texas that was kicking up a lot of red dirt
The kids were so excited to see their cousins and Jack got to ride a zip line with Connor
We started our trip on Sunday evening and made it to Omaha and then drove the rest on Monday.
