Road Trip

After returning from California, we came home and starting packing up for the summer. We left right away so that we could get on the road... only to see this for the next 3 days. Our drive was a over 2000 miles from home and that meant more than 30 hours in the car.


But luckily we've had a serious obsession with Harry Potter. We've listened to or read the last 5 books. We've also watched each movie over again once we finish with each book. So.... for this trip we listened to the 5th book.  We love Harry Potter. We pretty much arrived at the exact moment that it ended. I was desperate for the movie so we immediately found a block-buster and watched "The Order of the Phoenix" that night. Basically you could say that when the 6th movie comes out... we will totally be Midnight PremierERS.



Anyway throughout our trip, we ended up having friends in Nebraska and family in Ohio. The locations were a perfect distance from each other, both 12 hours from the other. We were lucky to be able to stay with both, we were definitely pampered and we really appreciate their hospitality (so thank you!!!!). Even though we hated being in the car (Grant was growing a beard), it was still fun. We are so glad that we won't be having to make that drive for a few more months!

You changed your background. The drive out was so incredibly long. It makes me sick to have to think about driving back in a few short months. P.S. I think i changed it so you can comment on my blog now. I will be calling you soon.

Britt, I am just starting to read Harry Potter! (I read the first 3 books years ago but can't really remember them so I'm starting over) But I'm so excited cause I love them too. Have you read the Twilight books?.... If not, you should, I know you would LOVE them.
P.S. Good idea to do book on tape in the car- cause the drive sucks!
