Home Sweet Home




After a total of 14 days of driving (with a 6 week interlude in Cape Cod), twenty-six states, and 7162 miles, I am happy to report that we are home. These photos, taken moments before we pulled into the driveway, indicate how happy (and completely crazed) the kids are too! (By the way, I'm not really sure why Ben has a band-aid on his nose).

I will, perhaps, sum it all up later, but I just want to say that we all gained a deeper appreciation for this incredible country...and each other...on this trek. Though I brought so many books and magazines to read, I spent most of my time gazing out the window at the varied landscapes, amazed at the beauty and uniqueness of each state we passed through. The kids (and dog) are absolute road warriors and spent hours upon end entertaining themselves, without much fuss. The things we saw, ate and experienced will never be forgotten. This certainly was a summer, and a road trip, to remember.

That said...it's so good to be home!
