Mega Road Trip 2018 Part 1

on March 28, 2018

Hi, friends! How are you?? I have been off the grid for a while so I thought that I would jump in with some catch up!! The last couple of days have been pretty quiet as we have been unpacking, doing laundry and getting groceries….soooooo, let us have a look at the 10 or so days before that because they were much more exciting! I will spare you the nitty gritty details, but how about some highlights!?

Friday, um, like a week and a half ago (yeah, we didnt have a ton of downtime to catch up!)….we jumped in the truck around noon and picked Ken up from work before starting our epic journey!

Clearly, Jasper knows the drill….


Brooke was pretty excited about her new lap tray.


We made it to Fruita in time for Ken to get in a mountain bike ride and me, Jasper and Brooke to get in a great hike!


Spent the night in Grand Junction before setting out the next morning to find some new trails! Both Ken and I got in around an hour on our mountain bikes (switching off to hang with B) before spending the rest of the afternoon driving.


In Cedar City, we made sure to pick up In-N-Out for dinner. So good.


We had planned to stop in a town surrounding Las Vegas, but due to March Madness EVERYTHING in the area was booked solid. Seriously!?!?!

We continued our drive and ended up in Barstow, CA. Not exactly the cream of the crop of hotels, but it did the job!


The next morning (Sunday if you are keeping count), it was a little chilly in the car.


We spent to morning driving until we made it to Fresno and made a stop at Costco, because…Costco. Grabbed some essentials and made our way to Coarsegold to visit with Ken’s grandma. It was SO green!! Nice to see after white all Winter at home πŸ˜‰


We had a lovely afternoon (I got in a 6 mile run-all hills) before grabbing some tasty Mexican food for dinner!

Monday morning, we hung out with Grams. She made us a delicious breakfast while Brooke and I played by the fire and Ken moved firewood.


After a quick wardrobe change, Brooke had to show off her skills!

Rocks make the best playgrounds.









After lots of hugs and some packing, we were back in the car and on our way to Southern California. We made it to my parent’s house just in time to help my mom pick up a vehicle before we left Brooke with her and headed out for a quickie mountain bike ride.




Tuesday was a bit rainy, but we found some windows for workouts! Ken got in a 3ish hour ride and I got in a 5 mile hilly trail run. Meanwhile, Brooke did all the things.


In the afternoon, we headed down to Disney Studios (where my parent’s are working) for a little tour and hang out time.


Brooke was a little unsure of the whole thing.


Maybe she thought she would try to hold up the building as well?


Pretty cool!


Spent the evening grading (dun dun dun)….And then Jasper thought he would join me in bed.


Wednesday was super rainy, so Ken and I did some errand running before spending the evening hanging with my brother and his 2 kiddos. Ken and I opted to run separately as my Mom was working….4 miles for me, 4.5 for him!

Brooke had no fun at all πŸ˜‰


And that was the first half of our trip (or at least the exciting parts!).

In an effort to not be photo overload….I will go ahead and post the rest tomorrow! A surprise trip to Disneyland may have been involved πŸ™‚

Have a great night! Vacation was amazing, but it is nice to be home!
