Some Say I've Got Ramblin' In My Blood

We made our first big drive through the country a few days ago.
Unfortunately, we were traveling to Matt's Great Grandmother's funeral. 
She was 103!! What a long, beautiful life she must have had. 
I never got the chance to meet her, but have heard that 
she was a very sweet lady :)

It was a quick, two day trip and was mostly spent in the car.
There was a lot of beautiful scenery on the drive, 
and I tried to capture a bit of it on my phone!
Seth was a trooper and only really made a fuss
when he was tired and just wanted to be in his crib. 
For the most part, he put on a brave face and was great.

The drive really was a blast. Loading up the car
and traveling in a van with Matt, his parents,
and two brothers reminded me of the days when my
family would drive from Illinois to California
and visit family. 

I will always kind of love long haul drives. 

The trip has made me so excited for some 
upcoming summer trips. Also my friend, Genni,
arrived late last night from Chicago!!
I'm so excited to share this beautiful
country with her :)
