wow, what a trip! a lot of hot, but yet a lot of fun! we thank you SO SO much, grandpa dwain and grandma betty for taking us all on this wonderful, memorable, family vacation!
my mom had been talking about this for years; it was "my mom's dream, my dad's nightmare!"
hee.hee. of course we took way too many pix to put on the blog, so here are just a few to enjoy. all five kiddos did AMAZINGLY well and were such troopers! naps were missed, a few tears were cried, but over all, they were great! thanks to cousins aspen and hanna for helping out with eli so much, he loves and misses you already! mason, you're so funny and we're glad eli has a cool boy cousin to look up to on this side of the family!
