Driving Home-Sigh

After a late night of Hand and Foot playing and a wrestles night of worrying about missing the alarm I was up by 5:30, dressed and ready to go. We were off by 6:00.

We drove through the Mexican dessert in the dark, and the sight of the sun rising over the saguaro cacti.

We crossed the boarder around 7:30 and were finally up to speed. We took it really slowly, minding the speed limits, we had no desire to be bothered by the Policia. We were there early enough that we had virtually no wait.

 

Another 40 minutes passed, and Mirah asked, “Why are they having a wedding in the middle of the road?”

As we approached this:

It was one of three boarder patrol stops.

We got to Phoenix and stopped for gas and met this guy:

A Bernadoodle. Have St. Bernard half poodle, ALL HUGE!

We stopped again pretty soon after that for another bathroom break, and finally got a chance to look at a few huge saguaro up close.

Mirah needed to make the stop so Karl took her in, and Lucas and I goofed around.

It was a pretty uneventful trip. 14 and a half hours in the car.

We were BEAT by the time we got home, and had some visitors waiting for us when we got there.
