I just thought I would give an update about our travelling. We left Monday around 8:30, which was about an hour and a half later than we were wanting to leave. This was after much unavoidable last-minute packing and cleaning. Sarah did not enjoy the car ride Monday, and we just barely made it into Arizona. We stayed at a 40-dollar motel in Kingman, AZ and realized that you get what you pay for! It had a bed and a lock on the door, so it sufficed for the night. :)
Last night we stopped in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. We were able to put in 560 miles yesterday, and Sarah did much better in the car once we realized that she had no problem taking a bottle while sitting in her carseat. I don't know if that's a no-no, but it made the day a lot easier. We had less stops and a happier baby.
We are hoping to make it somewhere between Tulsa, Oklahoma and Springfield, Missouri today. We are taking Route 40 for quite a ways, and it is quite scenic. We are happy to have Holly along as one of our drivers/nanny. :) It is fun to watch her excitement as we drive. This is her first trip West, so everything is new.
I have many photos I could post but no time. I will update again when able!
