Our trip was pretty much complete right off the bat because we saw Lightning McQueen. I don't recall passing through Radiator Springs, but there he was anyway. Peter thought it was pretty awesome. Oh, let's be honest, we all thought it was cool.
We had Woody along as our trusty traveling companion. He kept watch up front with me.
As is obvious in the photo, we came upon Hole in the Rock. Unfortunately, because we were on such a tight time frame to get Jonas to Texas before 5:00 on Friday night, we could only do a drive-by.
Ditto on the Monticello Temple. The kids were amazed at how small it is. I guess they're used to the view of the Salt Lake temple.
Oh yeah, it was also my birthday. I celebrated by spending 13 hours in the car with my family to make it part of the way to our final destination. Woo hoo! Do I know how to party or what? I did get a mini ipad out of the deal though, and I was with my favorite people, so it wasn't so bad. So birthday 1 on the road, done.
This was obviously still early in the trip, because everyone is still happy.
Actually, they were remarkably good. There were a few minor meltdowns - but those were mostly on the way home.
