The final 2 days!

Yeah, so I missed the last two days.  Thursday we only arrived at the hotel at midnight, and Friday, well we were unpacking. :)

Day 13 

Thursday was crazy!  We woke up at 6, and hit the road at 7.  We were barely into Colorado at the time, and our goal was to make it to South Dakota, so we would only have a 7 hour stretch to drive on Friday.  Anyhow, we drove 14 hours that day, and only  ended up at our hotel at midnight.
I didn’t take many pictures because well, the scenery was AMAZING!   I only took two because after that, I got frustrated at my phone cuz, it wasn’t and couldn’t capture the incredible beauty around us.  So I gave up on that and just enjoyed it instead. :)

These pictures don’t show how magnificent this place is,  but I had to try and catch a small glimpse of it anyways.  

We drove through 6 different states.  North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.  My favourite was Colorado.  the handiwork of our creator, the mountains, the trees, the snow... everything  about the place was just jaw dropping.  (The other states were awesome too!  Don’t get me wrong! But it’s just that Colorado stuck out to me:). 

Day 14

Today was home day!!!  We got back on the road by 8:15am and started the last length of our journey home.  We stopped at Grand Forks for some shopping and food, but we got home at 6:00pm!  

And that is the end of our trip!!   The last 2 weeks have  been absolutely amazing.   Lots of memories made!!!  Now excuse me, as I need to do a little more unpacking. :)

Day 12!

Day 12

This morning we packed up, said our goodbyes, and were on the road by 8:40.  We made it to Phoenix for the night!

We stopped at a subway for lunch, and did a bit of shoe shopping.  To end the day we had pizza, Krispy Kreme donuts, and swam in the pool. 
Not a ton of exciting things today, but however, we are stopping at the Grand Canyon tomorrow!

Day 11!

Today was our last day here.  Tomorrow morning we will pack up, and leave Mexico.  It is sad, but we are ready to come back to the place we call home. :).
So today, we went kayaking, (which was so awesome!) played on the beach, went out for lunch, then came back and spent the rest of the day just soaking up the last few hours.

I got sunkissed today! :)

Day 10!

Day 10 was a different kind of day, it was chill, but in a different way for me.
The kids from the ranch came to Uncle Brian and Auntie Clarissa’s place for the day.   So we went to church, took everyone to Pollo Feliz, and then while I stayed home taking care of baby, everyone else went to the beach!

Day 9!

Day 9

Today was a completely chill day at home!  We played games, coloured pictures, house cleaned, and a load of other random fun things.

Tonight the parents were invited out for supper, so it was kids pizza party night!   Watching a movie, flips, (for the boys) popcorn and more cleaning. :)

And at the end of the day, I got to hold and feed baby Evelyn... <3<3

Goodnight everyone!  Happy Easter!

Day 8!

Today, (yesterday actually:p)  the fam went and did some zip lining in the mountains!  I wasn’t able to go as a result of feeling under the weather, so I don’t have pictures. :(  I do have a few of the guys launching some oranges into the desert! Other than that, it was a chill day.

Until later...
