We are heading to Phoenix tonight. We like to drive overnight because Gabis sleeps and doesn't have to be entertained while strapped in her car seat for 6 hours.
My dad is one of six kids, and only two of them left the big city (including him). So I have a rather large extended family in the Phoenix area.
When my dad, stepmom and little sister come down to the Lower 48, that's where they head, and we drive over to meet them.
Since they live in Alaska we don't get to see them very often, so I'm really looking forward to this weekend. Plus, I get to show off Gabi to the family!
I'm not sure if I'll have access to the Internet while I'm there, so no more posting until Monday.
I'm anticipating serious withdrawals.
