{Our road trip is FINALLY over}

Well, we all made it here safe and sound. Each of us in one piece.....thankfully. :-)

Because of the time that we would have gotten there we opted not to go to Nauvoo, IL....we drove through the night and got to Salt Lake City area late July 3rd. We enjoyed the day with our brother Nicky and his really great girlfriend......then went on to visit with some friends of ours, the Powers. We left Mr E with them for a couple days as we went on to Butte, MT where the boys and I met The Mr's grandma from his father's side, for the first time.....and it had also been about 10 years since The Mr had seen his grandma and grandpa. It was really great being able to meet some more family. And we had a nice relaxing visit with them for a few days. Then it was on to Spokane, WA to visit with family there. We actually have quite a bit of family there and were able to see most of them, and even squeeze some wonderful friends in there too. :-) We stayed the night in Moses Lake, WA.....we missed some, but we're able to see others and hang out with them for a bit. This morning we headed out and made it to Puyallup, WA where we are now staying with my parents while we find a house. Wish us luck! :-)

{*sings*... On the Road Again, I just can't wait to get on the road again...}

Just wanted to let ya'll know that we are finally on the road. We are going to be making our way across the United States to Puyallup over the next week, stopping along the way to visit friends and family.

Our travels will take us from Fort Bragg, NC to Nauvoo, Ill. From there we will be heading to the Salt Lake City area and then on to Butte, MT. From Butte we will be heading across Idaho into Eastern Washington making stops in Spokane and Moses Lake. Finally we will make our way home to Puyallup.

If you are on our scheduled list of stops, we look forward to seeing you soon. If you are not, we are sorry we couldn't make it to everyone this time. Hopefully we will see ya'll eventually as things settle down.

As time and computer opportunities allow I will try and keep you updated!
