Vacation Stats

We are back from our first vacation since moving to Nebraska. We spent the last 2 1/2 weeks visiting our family in Washington and Oregon. Here is a little about our trip. Pictures coming soon! :-)

Our Vacation stats:
  • We left at 4:45 AM on Monday, July 26th and returned home at about 10 PM on Friday, August 13th.
  • We drove approx 4,000 miles.
  • We traveled through Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado.
  • 1 speeding ticket was issued in the state of Wyoming. I will not mention that it was Paul...oops! I just did!
  • We stayed in 3 different hotels - 1 on the way there (Kellogg, ID), 2 on the way home (Salt Lake City, UT and Steamboat Springs, CO) .
  • We stayed at 3 family members houses - My sister & mom in WA; Paul's parents in Oregon.
  • We had 2 oil changes - 1 in Billings, MT and 1 in Denver, CO.
  • We had to have 1 tire replaced in Denver, CO. Somewhere along the way we had a nail puncture our tire straight through. We didn't notice it had happened and we feel blessed that God kept us safe while we traveled. The total cost to replace the tire was only $32 because it was under warranty from Costco! :-) Gotta love Costco.
  • I did laundry 4 times (total of 7 loads) to come home with almost all clean clothes.
  • Other than sunburns from being on the beach in OR, we all remained very healthy on the trip! PTL!
  • Nathaniel is a dream when it comes to travelingr! He was so content riding in his car seat. He played with his toys, slept, danced to music, played I-Spy with mommy and was just all around great to travel with! Every morning he would get up and say, "Go bye-bye?" :-) Nate even continued to be successful with potty training on the road. Every stop I would take him to the bathroom right away and 98% of the time his Pull up was completely dry! Go Nathaniel!!! :-)
  • We had such a great time with friends and family on our trip, yet we were so excited to get back home again!
