We had such a great time visiting Grammy and Grampy in Denver. But alas, all good things come to an end and we had to head home to Daddy! We decided to drive a different way home so we could see our cousin Marci and then stay in Ogden to go to the open house for the Ogden Temple the next day. It was a longer drive but it meant less driving the next day.
Here is the beautiful sunrise after I went beyond Denver.
A funny buffalo at the top of the hill.
We stopped right into Wyoming to check out the rest stop there.
They had some pretty cool animals to look at.
They also had some funny things to try on. Aren’t my little robbers cute?
So precious! They liked the interactive things they had at this rest stop.
They also had an Abraham Lincoln statue thing outside. It was fun to look at.
It was FREEZING cold though so we made our stop there short and got back in the warm car. We drove through a TON of traffic and construction and were so happy to finally get to my cousin Marci’s house. We were sad we didn’t see Jeff but were happy to see Thomas! Sadly, this is the only picture I got.
Marci was a champ playing with them when she was 7M prego or so.We had a good time with them and played for about an hour and then moved on.
We took one more long stop in Green River. We got some food and ice cream, sat on cool saddle chairs and then went to the playground and climbed for a bit.
I really liked this playground. A little but harder for little kids but it was a lot of fun. Sadie liked it and loved watching the other kids play.
There was an advisory for strong winds and hail the size of golf balls. We were going through more construction and it was frustrating to go so slow when we had so far left to go, but I really like the cloud I saw.
I thought that it kind of looked like a tornado cloud as it was spiraling more and more as we drove under it. It was pretty cool.
We got to Aunt Marcia’s house after a long day of driving. It probably took us 13 or more hours…I can’t remember what we did. It was a long drive but we were glad to see our cousins. Matt and Chrissy came up about 2 hours after we got there and we were happy to see them!
