Epic Roadtrip of Doom...

Well, we have had an eventful summer, and to get back into the swing of blargging, I thought it would be good to recount the epic journey of doom that we took across the country from Atlanta to San Diego.

In case you aren't on the Facebooks, we don't live in Atlanta anymore. We live in Mexico. Or maybe it is San Diego. Either way it is not the East and feels like a completely different country. Back to that epic journey of doom...

We took a few pictures of the trip. Here we are right before getting into the car to head out. We were a little nervous but confident.



And here we are pulling up to our new home in San Diego after spending over 4,000 miles crammed in the car with the kids:




But we only have ourselves to blame. Here is a normal way to get to San Diego from Atlanta:


It's a long trip. Around 2200 miles or 31 hours of driving. I know what you're thinking: "Why would you go directly there, when you could first go the exact opposite direction and then loop around the entire country?" We felt the same way. So, we took this route:


So, I plan to do some posts about our 4600 mile trek across America and everything...EVERYTHING...that we saw.

And in unrelated news. I found on the internets just now that Frodo does a crazy good impression of Tessa when she is asked to do anything.

Me: Tessa, can you pick up your clothes?
