All the way to Nebraska! Across Washington, into Oregon, over to Idaho, into Utah, across Wyoming and finally into Nebraska! Other than one speeding ticket :( we did amazing. The roads were so great, we passed through some stretches with huge piles of snow on the sides of the road but the blacktop was clear. Such a blessing! So now we are relaxing in the cabin, the guys are hunting and we are snuggled inside. It was 5 below today! I love being able to see my mom and dad. My brother Andrew and his wife are here too with their two baby boys. I love being here. Tomorrow: showing my husband my high school, etc.. Can't wait.
Brrrr... The windmills in Wyoming were so cool to watch. All the country we saw was frozen, we did not see the thermometer in the car go over 23 the whole way!
We intended to drive 24 hours, stopping for food, gas and potty only. Maybe turning 37 on that day made me too tired! We spent the whole day on the road, stopped for a birthday dinner and had to stop three hours latter at Motel 6 in Evanston, WY to sleep for four hours.
