Ok so last night I am out with the hubby for a ride on the bike. We hit a dirt road and me being the goof that I am start being like a kids and saying ahhhhhhh as we go over the bumps. Then I start laughing at myself. With my mouth open while riding my bike(you know where this is going). Yup I swallow a bug, laughing -start coughing and choking while still laughing because I thought man I was pretty stupid. while on the back of the bike. Now Eric is Laughing at me because he knows I am the dork that I am. and I am thinking we are so going to crash. Good thing it was on the back roads and no one saw us. too funny!

Ok so we left Nh on June 28th at 8 am Heading west. Me , My Mom, and my three kids. We traveled by Car and My mom pulled her camper with her pickup. We took 2 vehicles because although we each had room for 5 it would not be comfortable for us all to take one. We traveled through 23 States. Started at Nh then Mass, New york, PA, Ohio,Indianna,Illinois, Iowa,Nebraska,Colorado,Utah,Nevada,Cali,Arizona,New Mexico, Texas,Oklahoma,Arkansas,Tennesee,Va,West VA, Maryland,Conneticut, Mass ,and Nh again.
We camped each night . It took us 6 days to get out there arriving in Cali at about 3:30 pm on July 3rd.We stayed with my Aunt and Uncles for 7 days leaving Saturday the 11th at 10 am to return home. We returned home on July 16th at about 6:30 pm.Our rule was that one older child had to be with each adult to help navigate etc. I was the designated Navigator (yeah, I know) at the end of day one travels I asked my Mom so where is your map ? She says I don't have any I am just following you. What faith. I know I wouldn't have had that much faith in me.
We really had a great time!We saw a ton of new new things. On the way there our goal sights were: The Iowa Windmills, Stopping to see Anna, Denver Co, and the Rockies,Bryce Canyon in Utah, we also saw Zion national park (drove through it actually) .We had to pay to go through, $25 per car and my Mom had to pay for her Camper too So$75 total to drive through a mountain. HMMMM who ever said those mormons were dumb????Funny I went through aprox half of Utah and never saw one temple.LOL
When we got t Cali. we had a family Cookout with all the cousins etc. That was great fun to see them after 20 years.We went to Sea world ,Las Vegas and stayed at Circus Circus . A Hotel that had an amusement park, casino and circus inside of it. Really cool! We went to Disney Land and Ca Adventure, Hollywood,and Knotts Berry Farm. I also got to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time Ever. It was just around the corner from Sea World.In San Diego ?I think. My Cousin Called it Ski Beach.
On our way home we saw the Grand Canyon, The cadillac Grave yard in Amarillo TX.That was cool we got to paint on the cars with spray paint. We also went to Nashville to see the grand old Oprey. There was alot more to see but I would never get my pics posted if I told you everything.lol so here are the much awaited pics Enjoy!
