My Favorite Road Trip

Do you have a memory from a family road trip that was so much fun that you just can't stop thinking about? And at times just sit and smile about it?!? 

Well~I know I have a favorite memory and I would love to share it with you...

Many years ago when my children were younger{we had 3 under the age of 8}we decided to take a road trip from Milwaukee,Wisconsin to Tuscon,Arizona in July. As I had a very good friend that lived out there and she invited us to come stay with her for a few weeks.So we borrowed my parents 4 door Buick with NO air conditioner and got everything loaded up and away we went..Oh yeah~it was hot let me tell you.But one good thing with the windows down the kids couldn't fight~as they couldn't hear each other..LOL

We had so much fun on that we took our time and stayed at a different hotel every nite.The kids thought that was the greatest thing! As we also got to eat out all the time! We laughed and talked and of course there were many fights.But I am so glad that we all got the chance to be together as a family when we took that trip.

We saw many different things and that was the first time any of us had seen a armadillo in Texas! We saw it on the side of the road and I made my ex turn around so we could see it again and take a picture.That was also the first time that we saw a cactus and a black widow spider! That is a memory I could have lived without...

We all loved it there so much and wanted to move but it just never worked out that way.
A couple weeks ago my ex passed away and I found out that he wanted to be cremated and took back to Arizona. I think that is a wonderful idea as it is so beautiful and I know that he will be at peace there.
