Day 26

Vegas Baby -fun watching all the lights from our room
Whew....what a trip. Today is day 27 and we arrived home at about 5pm......4,000 miles of Mama driving 6 states. This adventure has reminded me that the United States is BEAUTIFUL and so are its people. The strangers I have come across traveling for 27 days has reminded me that we live in a great country and people are good. It has also made me appreciate (even more than I did) my friends and family. I love you all and THANK YOU for making July 2010 an AMAZING month. With Sarah being an only child I really want her to feel grounded , loved and know that she has a large circle of people that love her. Also, I want her to have people to call when she is picking out my favorite Jello flavor in the nursing home....(Cherry)

Now get the blender out it is time for a margarita!!
