Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay in posting, but our internet has been limited since we left Alaska.

We did have a wonderful time in VA, visiting with family and friends. The temperature was much hotter than we are used to, but we managed to stay cool most of the time. For the 4th of July we went out with my sister and her family to the Potomac River. Christian and I spent most of the day in the water, and got sunburned of course. Afterward we had a scrumptious dinner of shrimp, crab, burgers, etc. followed by fireworks on the beach.


    The kids enjoyed being towed by the jet ski.

After our celebration of the 4th, we began getting things squared away for our trip south. Things did not go quite as planned with DMV, but we finally got things arranged and ready. It is always hard saying good bye, so instead it was “until next time”, and though the tears were not in my eyes, they were in my heart.

As we began the trip south, we drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway for a while. In all the years I had lived in Virginia, I had never been on it before. It is quite a beautiful drive. We stopped several times along the way for pictures and a quick lunch.





After stopping to visit a few friends along the way, we pushed on into Tennessee and through several thunderstorms. We continued on into the night, finally stopping at a rest area for a quick nap. We crossed the Mississippi River into Arkansas around midnight of the second night, and into Texas around 10:00 am, finally arriving at my son Daniel’s house around 4:30 pm, a total of 51 hours and 1400 miles after beginning the journey. We were exhausted, but glad to be here.

We will be spending the next few days here, and then onto Arizona. I will post more pictures and updates before we leave.

I hope and pray that everyone is doing well and staying safe. Hugs to you all and God bless. – Amber & Christian
