We’re here!

And we’re pooped!  We arrived in Sierra Vista on Sunday at about 11:30 and by the time we unpacked the cars, set up our air mattress and got the pups settled in, we probably went to bed around 1:30.  Brian started the trip out with a cold, I ended it by catching it and Zoe was car sick the whole time, so by Monday morning we were all pretty exhausted.   But we made it here without major incident and we even got to visit our good friend Chris Winter (and the Winters’ pup Abby!) in Las Vegas on our last night of the road trip.  We had dinner at his house while the three pups played and we met for breakfast the next morning.  Chris had moved down to LA at the end of the summer for a new job after the Army and his wife Liz will be moving down there as well in the next few months so it was really great to be able to see him on our trip!  Other than that we are just settling in.  I actually really like the set-up of my home office and the air mattress isn’t that bad – just can’t wait to have our pots and pans back so we can do some cooking!  I promise the updates will be a little more exciting from here – just wanted to let everyone know we arrived 🙂 

Check out some of our pics from the trip (I warned you about the puppies!)

    Glad you all made it safe and sound. Your pix remind me of how unique the beauty of the southwest can be! Hope your pots and pans arrive soon. What will you cook first? ;0)

    So happy your trip went well.. It’s a long ride but, I must say from experience, you are good person to go on a long trip with.. I bet you’ll agree Brian!! Love you all, can’t wait to hear from you oxox Gram

  4. Brian is right – we were in Los Angeles and I was tired last night – sorry! Actaully, we were outside of Los Angeles in Rancho Cucamonga (yes, its a real town!). Bob – it is beautiful here – I’m excited for the weekend because I havent gotten to see much in daylight outside of our apartment area yet. I think I will cook something super plain and healthy when we get our pots and pans to negate all the take-out – chicken soup?

    Gram – I missed you and our books on tape this trip – just ask Brian :o)
