I'm on a crazy road trip!



My children talked me into DRIVING TO OKLAHOMA FOR THANKSGIVING!

So, Child #2, Child #3, Child #4 and I packed up last night and left at 7:30 this morning. We drove for TWELVE hours (Child #2 and I shared the driving) and we're now settled in a nice hotel room in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We'll only be on the road 8 hours tomorrow.

It's much chillier here than back in San Diego (although I gather it rained all day back home). We're severely under-dressed in our t-shirts and flip-flops! It works fine for driving, but we're definitely cold when dashing into rest stops. :) We'll break out the shoes and sweatshirts in the morning.

I think the nieces and cousins, and especially the grandparents are still in shock that we decided on the spur of the moment to join them for Thanksgiving!

How fun to be spontaneous!



p.s. Child #2, Child #3, Child #4 all have this entire week off. Mr Summy and Child #1 couldn't afford the time for the trip :(

What a memory you're creating!! I'd no idea San Diego was in such a warm bubble.
