As you can see we made it there and back in ONE piece. The drive to AR was a long and grueling 13 hr drive which let me tell you, you couldn't PAY me enough to live in Alabama...talk about BACK woods man...you can hear the song from deliverance in the background.
Our visit went fine.
The great grandparents ::LOVED:: seeing everyone and we are glad it made their time. We were there from December 20th until December 29th. The drive home was much better and a bit shorter since we didn't go through the long haul of Alabama...
We survived the cold temp that only occured ONE night which honestly was quite laughable. It got to 17 and then most of the time was in the mid 60's to low 70's talk about disappointment in the weather.
The kids were nice and happy. Santa brought them lots of toys and fun goodies to play with and keep them occupied while we were there. We also got to visit with a couple of Mark's high school buddies that we still keep in touch with which was really great and we thank them profusely for their hospitality.
I have TONS of pictures to go through and actually filled up my memory card and didn't bring the 4 G with me lol. I am currently going through 256 pictures and rotating and all that and will post some of Christmas day ect.
Hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and have a happy and safe New Year!!
