Thank You Video: We finally made it to Arizona!
We’ve finally reached our destination after 9 days of driving with a few stops on the way!
We spent the last night of our trip in El Paso visiting my aunt and cousin. We also finally had the chance to meet my cousin’s daughter, Rowan. She showed us her excellent drawing skills and I showed her my lack of such abilities.
Then we continued our drive to finally arrive in Phoenix yesterday evening to be greeted by these little
So thank you to everyone who hosted, fed and entertained us! We loved spending time with all the family and friends.
Weekend in Texas
We spent the weekend in Round Rock visiting family. Lots of sitting. Talking. Eating. Little frisbee golf. Farmers market. More eating. Absolutely the most relaxing place to be with the best people. But time to continue on with the rest of the road trip. El Paso here we come! Time to see more family for a night. Then we’ll finally get to Phoenix tomorrow! :-)
The Farewell Celebration
The time finally came for our last day at work! I had mine on Thursday and when Auston came home from his last day on Friday, we began the celebration (champagne courtesy of Auston’s coworkers). We were also lucky to have our friend Lucas visit for a night just in time before we left.
Unfortunately, the time came to say goodbye to the great friends we’ve met in Chicago. Saturday night was the farewell dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Excellent food, BYOB, and belly dancing. What better way to say goodbye? (or more accurately, until next time!) Thanks Erik for taking all the photos and for being the only one bold enough to dance with the belly dancer! We’re going to miss everyone!
