Today, was day 1. We left home at about 2:00 this after noon and we arrived to Holbrook, AZ just before 10pm. The day went a lot smoother than I anticipated. The kids did pretty well. Naomi asked, several times, if we were "Going to Michigan" and "Are we going on our trip, now"
We made a few stops along the way. We stopped for gas in Needles, CA but the gas was $4.89/gallon. So needless to say, we used the restroom and bought gas down the road in Kingman, AZ.
We saw some beautiful mountains and desert scenery. Tomorrow we will be driving through New Mexico and staying the night in Amarillo, TX.
