Pre-trip boondoggle...

I know, driving to Bakersfield the day before we drive - THROUGH - Bakersfield probably isn't the best idea but I really wanted to get out of the house today. I tried for a good amount of time on Saturday trying to pull together plans to enable us to leave on today, but as it turned out EVERYTHING was booked and our only other option would have been to stay a Wal-Mart until we could check on Monday at 1600... So it was kind of pointless so we made a trip into town and to Camping World and some other places.

So we ended up going to Camping World, StarBucks, Toys-R-Us, Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, CompUSA, Wal-Mart, Babys-R-Us, and finally Red Lobster. Kind of a whirlwind day but a lot of fun. We did end up talking to a couple at Red Lobster that were married in Jun and they struck up a conversation because of Deanna. Sometimes it is neat to talk to people you would never meet and get a tiny bit of insight into a different world/life. All in all it was a pretty cool day and now we just have to finish getting everything loaded up tomorrow and get on the road. The place we are going is suppose to have wireless internet so I should be able to continue blogging and uploading my stock shots.

I know this blogging thing can seem pretty goofy but I sure do like them. Brad, Denise's brother continues to keep his up and it is really neat to read about the antics that are going on in his part of the world. It is really kind of odd how something as simple (and stupid) as a blog can keep people connected and the illusion that they are still close (in proximity). That is how this has worked with my mom too - she keeps a pretty active blog and it really makes you feel like you are there - and the pictures help too! However - we haven't seen any pictures of the kids since they have gone up there.

Okay - I will try to post on a daily basis. I am adjusting to the addition to the family unit - a bit more than we are used to:)
