Road Trip Part 1…

17 Dec

We were out the door at 4:30am on Monday morning. Aaron and girls said goodbye to their beautiful house and took off on a new road.

It was windy and raining for the first few hours…

I think in Aarons head he was saying something like – Dude, totally radical!

I decided to take the second shift of driving – i mean, it stopped raining so it should have been no prob right?? Then i started seeing little white things floating thru the air…ah crap. It was snowing.

Jade was like, “ah snow? Whateve’s – Im watching a movie..”

This is around when i started panicking…Ive never driven in snow before, so it was white knuckles the whole way…

Notice the car on the far left? Not so lucky…We saw a bunch of that…

At the next gas up my mom took over so i could start breathing again….i rested in the back for a while until i saw freaking sun coming thru the windows, what the freak?! why did i have to get all the snow??

We got to New Mexico around 8 or so. I got hit on by the security guard at the hotel while Mom and Cristy sat in their cars laughing with each other on the two-way radios… thanks guys for leavin me hanging on that one!!! We ate a quick dinner and then slept the day off. When we woke up and headed out it was a warm 14 degrees with wind. oh ya – and icy roads. Glad Mom took over that one…

This is Mom’s It’s-Butt-Cold-And-I’m-Wearing-A-Sweatshirt face…

We stopped after a while (still in New Mexico) for some lunch…

Aaron and I jumped out to have a look at this cool old building for sale. If it wasn’t super cold it would have been fun to check it out some more…

I was pretty excited to eat at this place, it had a cool vibe and it was warm inside…

You know what i noticed about Cristy on this trip? She does little dance moves and happy faces when she finds something good to eat…

My excitement went down hill when i got my meal. Green chili – im pretty sure someone ate it before i got it and threw it back up into my bowl.

Jade kept it real by getting hamburgers at almost every meal…

Mom – tryin to summon the invisible swordsman…

Apparently the norm for guys bathrooms…

I’m pretty sure Aaron had his business socks on that day…

Back in the car and on our way thru Texas to Oklahoma City…..

    You made this adventure a fun one. Your attitudes are sweet. Of course Noelle not only sharing the wheel with her mom, but both of them taking the best photos of enjoying the journey. I want to do a road trip!
