Our first stop was Phoenix, AZ. We got to kiss on Shelby and visit with Dustin, Kyla, Jera and Chelsea. Shelby has the cutest round cheeks. We picked up Alysa and Kaycee and headed North then turning East. The drive was long and laboring. The trailer was so loaded down that we could only travel slow up and down hills. The kids did remarkably well for being in the car so long. We left Oregon on a Friday and rolled into Arizona Sunday afternoon. We left Monday morning and arrived in Arkansas on Thursday afternoon. I just cried when I saw my sisters. I haven't seen them in so long.
