Road Trip

Last weekend, the three of us took at road trip {looong road trip} to visit my family in Phoenix. Miller had not met his great-grandma and other family there, so we thought it would be a great time to go visit.

We left out early July 1st and drove all the way through on the way there. 19 hours total. Miller did awesome! He's just a go with the flow kind of baby and I love it. Each stop was a lot longer than usual, but it was so much fun.



I was so happy to see my grandma play with Miller. She's the only grandparent I still have so I was so excited for her to meet him.

Miller saw his first cactus. {I didn't edit this image at all, the sky was that blue}

He also took his first {of many, I'm sure} trip to Cabela's.

We were there on the 4th of July too. We didn't watch fireworks..one, because they are way too loud and two..it's 2 hours earlier there so Miller went to bed at 7pm. {and woke up at 5am}. But, he was still patriotic. :)

Every time we go to Phoenix, we go to Rustler's Rooste to eat rattlesnake {yes, it tastes like chicken}. It's kind of a family tradition.  So, of course we had to take Miller. His horns were a little big, even for his big noggin.


On our way home, we spent the night in Amarillo.

Then, we went to visit our friends The Hague's and I can't believe I didn't take one picture. :( After over 2,200 miles, we were glad to be home!
