drive me crazy

We took a trip to Utah because another one of Sam's friends decided to get married. A while ago I vowed never to drive to SLC again, because I hate long car trips. Then Landon turned 2, and it seems our real life budget doesn't give a crap about how much I loathe sitting in one spot for 10 hours. For some reason we decided to chop this trip into about 50 mini trips. I guess I thought it would lessen the blow. I was very wrong. When I got off work Tuesday evening we left to stay in Flagstaff for the night. After a quick continental breakfast we were back on the road for our first pit stop in St. George. We stayed two nights, then it was time to hit the road. We stayed with David and Ali in their beautiful home across the street from the new Draper Temple. While in the Salt Lake valley we drove back and forth between Draper, Provo, Salt Lake, down to Lindon for the reception, and then back up to Draper again for our last night. In the morning we drove back the St. George for one more night before the hideous descent back to Phoenix. Despite all the driving we actually had a great time! It was so good to see everyone, and the best part is that we get to do it all again in two weeks! Except this time we will be driving to California... and my funeral.

Ew. I hate driving to Utah. We just got back from there and we had to stop to let Slade throw up. It was great. Have fun in California!

I dont like making that drive either. We went this summer and I had to do all the driving so I chose to make Las Vegas my half way point. Made the trip way easier for me because I hate driving.

Good luck with the run!! Hey, there is hope. I have started enjoying trips a lot more in my old age! :) (Maybe because there are no babies crying or kids arguing!)
