We left Vicksburg fairly early for us out of a hotel… we knew we had some driving to do but it wasn’t going to be our longest day yet. We weren’t exactly sure how time would work out and if …

Wichita Falls seemed pretty nice, but we weren’t going to stick around to find out. We had travelled through another time zone the day before and it took its toll on us. We overslept (yes, even the girls slept passed …

With all the rain the night before, we weren’t out of it yet on the next day either. We left ABQ after eating at the Aztec Restaurant which had some pretty decent food, but pretty terrible coffee. We made the …

We checked out a few more open houses on Sunday morning in the PHX Metro area before making the drive out of AZ to NM. Taking the north-easterly route through scenic state parks was amazing. Arizona has way more mountains …

Day Thirteen: Home away

http://williamandwhitney.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/IMAG1718-579x1024.jpg

We always wanted to live in the Phoenix area. I almost had to move here about 8 years ago and I was hooked on that idea every since. Obviously, we stayed in VA but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t take a …

 

Day Twelve: Lions and Tigers and Bears…

http://williamandwhitney.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/WP_20140711_001-1-1024x612.jpg

Oh my… Friday was the ZOO day. The unofficial turning point in the trip. We got up and left the hotel to go straight to the San Diego Zoo for breakfast. The girls got to have their favorite food: Avery …

 

Day Eleven: Seeing stars…

With the extra time in CA for this trip, we figured we would see what was going on in LA for a few hours. We drove down from Santa Maria through Santa Barbara getting Avery her favorite breakfast at the …

Regretfully leaving Tahoe the day before, we made our way towards Sacramento and ended up staying the night in Vacaville, CA. We started early after breakfast to make our way to San Francisco. It was a pretty easy drive over …

 

Day Nine: Lake and Family

http://williamandwhitney.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/DSC06320.jpg

Waking up in Tahoe to a somewhat chilly 64 degrees, we weren’t sure if getting in the lake was going to be an option. We had spoke with our waitress the night before about good places to take the kids …

 

Day Eight: Snow, sand, free hotel?

http://williamandwhitney.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/WP_20140707_006-1024x612.jpg

Our eighth day starting pretty well. The overnight temperatures were great in Rawlins and the wind was pretty minimal so everybody slept soundly. I’m still on east coast time though and still got up at 5 in the morning regardless. …
