Even though we get to see the country often on moves the last few years, we had so many places to go and friends and family to visit we decided to drive to everywhere we wanted to go. It started with James asking about Mount Rushmore and I wanted to figure out a route that would enable us to visit as many people as possible and see some historical sights and learn a few things along the way. So our big plans include TX, AL, and IL back past Mt. Rushmore then back to CA. I'm finally getting a chance to start writing this as we are already in MS and scheduled to arrive in AL tomorrow later in the afternoon.
Night 1: Kingman, AZ. Route 66, beautiful sunset, heat finally!!!! after freezing in N. CA since we arrived it has been such a treat to feel hot outside again.
