3 and a half weeks ago we piled into the car and drove for 27 hours. By starting at 7:30pm we were able to get halfway there before the kids woke up and that is a great thing :)
We drove through Colorado, Utah, and Idaho on our way to Oregon. Utah is gorgeous and I would love to go back and see some of the national parks.
On our way home we stopped by Four Corners for a photo op. Here we all are in 4 different states. I'm in Utah, Eric is in Colorado, Anika is in New Mexico, and Emily is in Arizona.
I highly recommend driving at night when you have little ones in the backseat. It really wasn't a bad drive and we may even do it again next year.
