So, the time had finally come that I take the girls to see the city that we would call home. I was so excited. I was also nervous out of my mind to drive up our four daughters 2 1/2 hours by myself. We had a GREAT time and those stories and pictures will come in a later post. This one is reserved for the real "fun." Let's start out with our drive. I got lost. My directions said I should be going right when I actually should have gone left. I tried calling Moroni for 15 minutes but bless his heart he was in meetings. After balling my eyes out because my greatest fear for the trip came true, I then finally got through to Moroni and got put back on the right course. The rest of the day was a blast! Then we cut to this morning where I again had to drive by myself to a friends house who lives in a nearby area. I again got lost and then when I finally figured out where I was going, got pulled over by a cop...for speeding!! It was awful. I luckily got away with a warning because I was just so pathetic. Just when I thought I was finally out of the clear and could literally see my friends house from where I was pulled over, Madelyn THREW UP!! That's right...threw up. It was all over her, the car seat and part of the car. It smelled so bad and I had no idea where to go from there.
So, the trip didn't turn out quite the way we thought. I never did get to drive around different towns to see what I like. But, I did get to see a lot more of this amazing state that we live in, got to thank our boys in blue for all they do and I got to remember why I pack extra clothes every time we go somewhere. Over-all good trip!
