Arkansas, and Oklahoma, and Kansas, oh my….

we spent quite a few hours in each of those states. we are now in colorado…..denver to be exact. 
we have been 1102 miles according to the GPS. our license plate game has left us with 9 states left to “see” – mostly new england states. can you believe we have seen license plates from hawaii and alaska?!?!? 

and now, scenes from a road trip.

032 042
just before getting lost because of a detour – NOT fun!
jacob got so bored he cleaned out my purse……seriously.
no worries, i still had my eyes on the road and there were no cars around.
a prairie storm. very intriguing and mesmerizing. truly a testament to God’s awesomeness.

the face i make because i hate serious pictures because they usually contain a double chin. yep.

it was a blast and not nearly as bad as i thought it would be. we are here now and enjoying our family.
wonderful weather, endless games, and tons of conversation. just the way things ought to be.

more to come later!
