Home Sweet Home

Just wanted everyone to know that we are officially home.

We left Friday morning at 5:45, crossed the border smoothly (dogs and all), and were on our way. We had a flat tire in the middle of Texas...it took us 3 hours to get fixed and then we were back on the road.

On the way down, Will and I took three days....we broke up the long hours of driving and spent some quality time together. We were so ready to get home this trip that we just kept driving. We ended up getting back at 3:30 Saturday morning.

It was a long day of travel and swollen feet, but when we got home we couldn't just crawl in bed. We spent about an hour walking around our house and yard (which is looking really good thanks to my sweet dad).

Both Will and I said that we would do it all again. It was an incredible summer...it was tough, but well worth it!

Thank God for America, we are beyond blessed to live here and to have the kind of lifestyles we have. Walking through Babies 'R' Us just isn't the same after living in Mexico and seeing how they live.
