The Cutler's Summer Of Fun Begins!

This was one long day. After goodbyes to the dog and stopping to top off the gas tank, we were on our way!

Unfortunately, a meanie stomach virus that Allison was being bothered with made it's way over to Bret, so our trip took just a bit longer. However, I now know all the rest stops from Phoenix to Albuquerque. This also meant I drove the entire way, which makes me rather drained right now. Bret offered several times, but I didn't want to stress him with that on top of not feeling well.

We did manage to have a good drive up though. We stopped at the Petrified Forest for lunch, then took a route through a bit of the Painted Desert before reconnecting with I-40. Absolutely stunning. I will probably upload a few photos to Flickr tonight. I will do that periodically throughout the trip, then when we get home I will upload everything else. If today was any indication, we should have thousands of photos to sort through once we're home! Yikes!

Anyway, we got into town around 8:30, then met up with the family. SO good to see them! Tomorrow Katie and I are going to check out the fitness center here at the hotel. Oh heck, we might even exercise too! I certainly know there is a beautiful pool out there that will require my attention tomorrow as well... but for now, I rest.
