GA to CA: Roadtrip Recap

(I had written a lot of this during the trip, but between my blogger app and the hotel internet, it was impossible to post it!)

We made it through the first day! It was actually a lot more fun than we had anticipated.  We drove through Georgia, Alabama, then stopped in Mississippi to see Doug's grandparents, where Maisy made a new friend, a sweet poodle named Maggie.



As you can see, we're taking pictures of every state sign. I was driving when we entered Louisiana so you can see the professional quality photos that Doug took. I had to majorly crop it just to see the state name.


He was also in charge of taking pictures of the Mississippi River.....FAIL.




Then we made our way to Shreveport, LA to meet Megan! The post about our awesome blate is here.


On day 2, we drove through all of Texas and into New Mexico, finally making it to Albuquerque for the night.





And on day 3, we drove through the rest of New Mexico, into Arizona, then finally into California!









36 hours of driving later, we made it home last night. We are so surprised and thankful that we didn't have any issues during the trip! We could not be more proud of our little pets- they were just perfect in the car. They slept the entire time and barely made a peep! Such little angels :) I've taken about 4,000 pictures of them, but I'll try to narrow it down and share just a few:
















"Get me outta here, Mom!"

Home sweet home, California?

Oh my goodness, Doc does the EXACT same thing in the car that Maisy is doing in the last picture! He scoots all the way over and squishes his head against the door. I guess they think it's comfortable? Haha anyway glad y'all made it to CA safe and sound!
