We made it safely back from vacation. It was amazing... we drove from Ohio to New Mexico to see John's dad. I will be posting pictures soon. I have to say, Samantha is the easiest child to travel with. She had an area set up in the back seat where she slept, read, colored and watched movies. You wouldn't have even known she was there she was so quiet! A few times I had that panicked feeling like we'd forgotten and left her somewhere.
So, New Mexico was great. On the way there we stopped in St. Louis and went to the Arch and then in Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma City Memorial Site. John's dad lives in Alamogordo, NM where we went to the space museum and White Sands. We also went to Mexico, walked over the boarder and everything. I will post pictures soon.
Samantha had library day at school and she brought home a book about wildlife in the desert southwest. She was so excited to show me all the pictures that looked like Grandpa's house.
