Due to a death in the family, we found ourselves taking an unexpected road trip. We chose to make the best of the situation and in between the hours and hours and hours and more hours in the car, we stopped and took some field trips. I loved the drive! There was so much beauty to be seen, but more importantly, I was whispering praises. We were together as a family! We had to really plan our routes carefully to avoid any elevation above 5,000 feet because of my ear pressure, but allowed God to unfold the plans along the way.
Hotel #1 - unfortunately this hotel was not our favorite stay. The hotel was beautiful, but the service was quite a disappointment and we had the noisiest people above us. After a long days drive, it was not the way we hoped to find rest. I'm choosing to remember the fun the girls had and the very nice, large suite we were blessed in our very tight budget.
We were exhausted and headed back to Hotel #2 and got In-N-Out burgers!! We enjoyed an evening with indoor swimming and a game of dominoes. I lost!
. . . and our road trip continues.
