on the road

I don’t know what it is, but I love roadtrips. Admitedly more fun without kids, but we managed anyway. Eating, singing, reading, watching DVDs, playing road games, eating both good snacks and junk food (by the way, I’ve lost two of the five pounds that I had gained!). The music we listened to varied from Weezer to the Beach Boys and Ben Folds to Justin Timberlake (a guilty pleasure of mine). And my car is still in desperate need of a good cleaning, inside and out. Here are a few snippets from I-15 (and two from the 57).

The mandatory stop at In-n-Out Burger.

Gwen with her fast little hands is learning quickly that there is much out there that tastes better than baby food.

I have to say that there are some really dumb people out there. This actually looked worse if you were driving right behind this person, but once we moved over into the other lane we were a bit nervous to be behind this loaded truck again.

These are for you James! I saw a flyer at church for Mormon Night at Angel Stadium. I totally miss that.

    The jury’s still out for me re: road trips.

    The California one is a toughie. And I’m just as cranky as the kids!

    It’s probably b/c we’ll be doing it shortly and I like to complain to Aaron about it for a good two months in advance.

    Any tips?

    The picture of the truck is hysterical! Oh, how I love In-n-Out. I didn’t eat beef for six years, and then went to In-n-Out and was cured.

    southern or northern route? the northern route is so much worse, i think.

    i don’t think there’s any one solution. just knowing your kids and what they need. and dave and i had good talks and just played kind of made up road trip games that help pass the time. i’ll explain some to you next time i see you, it’ll take too long here.

    NORTHERN! i agree. ugh.

  5. Holly

    those two extra hours seem like an eternity! i am sorry. but where are you going? tahoe?

    Hey Holly!
    Yes, we were in the same ward, I was just in the nursery the entire year we lived there! Your girls are so gorgeous… you should let me take their pics sometime!

  7. Tracy

    WHEW! I thought that was YOUR truck!! Love the pictures – you look beautiful in that first one!!

    hey holly! okay, since its confession time….i have never liked any of justin timberlake’s music until this recent album…its just so good. since i can’t bring myself to buying or downloading it…i just go to his website and listen to. i hate to even admit this to myself, but since you did i felt i could to!
    p.s. i still have all the letters you wrote me while we were both on our missions? want copies of any of them? pretty funny stuff!
