Well, we made it back from our trip to the Rose Bowl in one piece. We were gone four days, and two of those included 16 hours of driving. We lucked out with the weather and encountered no snow or ice in the pass, so that was a huge relief.
Unfortunately, our Ducks lost, but we still came away with a fun experience. Just getting to go to the Rose Bowl was amazing. We were in awe much of the time we were there, and even after the loss, were still so proud of our Pac Ten champs!
And, we got to spend some quality time with my brother and his girlfriend. They offered up their apartment for us to stay, and played tour guide for us while we were there. We were able to spend New Years Eve with them and had a great time; enjoyed some drinks and video games. It was perfect!
We are definitely done with trips for awhile, and I'm done leaving my kiddos for a long time. I was so happy to get back to them, and we spent most of the first day home just kissing, hugging, playing and talking.
