We MADE it, we're alive! We successfully drove over 2,500 miles in less than 72 hours. It was intense, but because we split up driving it was do-able. The drive west of albuquerque was beautiful too--- we just wish we would have had more time to stop and see some of the sights along the way, but we decided to take some time after this job is over and travel back to the Grand Canyon and spend a long weekend. Problem solved. If you follow me on twitter or instagram you got to watch our trip unfold over the course of the weekend. It was so fun to be able to keep ya'll updated that way! If you missed it, I am going to share some of my favorite pictures and a few videos below!
DAY ONE: South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas
|1. Filling up in Myrtle Beach, Bella wondering whats going on, and a weird thing I saw on the highway|

DAY TWO: Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona
This day was brutal. We left little rock at the crack of dawn and decided to make a huge push that day.We figured we could at least make it the 15 hours to albuquerque, NM but husband pushed 5 hours further to make it to Flagstaff-- making it a 20 hour driving day.
|waffles!, hello little rock!, and I always think a log will fly off and impale me thanks to the final destination movies.|
|can you spot bella?, weird clouds, and maybe amarillo, tx? it's hard to say, that day was a blur|
