|Anna wasn't always sure what to think about the drive.|
We dreamed up this trip before we were even married. We were planning our honeymoon, and the Grand Canyon seemed like an awesome place to honeymoon at. That didn't happen. Instead, we traveled to Missouri, and that ended up being perfect. Still, we did hope to visit the Grand Canyon someday. On Friday, March 1st, Someday happened -- or started to happen. Albuquerque, New Mexico was our first destination.
Anna is no stranger to car rides, but this was her biggest trip so far. In the course of the day, we drove 652 miles from our Oklahoma home to Albuquerque, New Mexico. We made good time. We left home around 7:15 or so in the morning. We were in Texas at 11:34 and New Mexico at 2:52. Of course, we crossed over the time zone line at that point, so it was only almost 2:00. We made it to my grandparents' home about 5:40 -- in time for a delicious dinner made by Grandma!
More than ten hours on the road with a baby! Anna traveled fairly well most of the day, but it was rough at times. In the course of our travels, she had three sleep times, three happy play times, and three crying times. The last one was rough!
