An Accounting: Traveling to Utah and Back

We recently returned from a fun filled trip to see both sets of parents, cause anything less, would be uncivilized. There are many things to see and behold on a drive that takes you through Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.

12. Car wrecks,
11. Tons of road salt [scattered over 1,800 miles],
10. Colorado State Troopers,
9. Cabooseless locomotives,
8. Skiers falling,
7. Frozen waterfalls,
6. Mountain tunnels,
5. Million shoppers
4. Children sledding,
3. Family parties
2. Mormon temples,

...and a Shooting star over Grand Island.

So you still do have some writing talent... even after all the boring technical writing.

We do miss you guys! But I know you all have family obligations and such. Glad it was a fun trip for you all!

I hope you didn't get to see the state troopers up close like I did on our trip to Midland for Thanksgiving. I know there are more enjoyable sites to see on vacation than that!
