Everett falls asleep.  photo 205eresized_zps309a5224.jpg photo 208eresized_zps01c973bf.jpg

The kids are all in good moods!  photo 214eresized_zpsad319b61.jpg photo 215eresized_zps205472dd.jpg photo 218eresized_zps945d49c9.jpg photo 224eresized_zps2dbc7cd6.jpg photo 229eresized_zpsc67d6f3c.jpg

Stopping for gas and to let the kids stretch!  photo 232bwresized_zps556b6c7e.jpg photo 233eresized_zpsda734f93.jpg photo 234eresized_zpsa1a35bf0.jpg photo 236eresized_zpsae09a192.jpg photo 238eresized_zpsd67f56f0.jpg

Not too far into the drive Allan’s boat cover tore! I think that was mostly why we stopped at this particular gas station… just to take his cover off and throw it away in the dumpster there!  photo 241eresized_zps4a6154fe.jpg

Since we were only bringing two cars worth of stuff with us (to last 9 months) we also loaded up what we could in Allan’s boat!  photo 242eresized_zps74c06d2f.jpg photo 243eresized_zpsb77ef068.jpg photo 158eresized_zps1a7402bb.jpg photo 249eresized_zpsb7f6e8d3.jpg

We thought it was funny that the cover ripped so easily. Allan had never used it but it came with his boat which he got from someone in Arizona… obviously the cover got burnt by being in the Arizona sun so long and was really brittle. We didn’t need it anyway since Allan always keeps his boat in the garage.  photo 250eresized_zpse05c7dce.jpg photo 258eresized_zps6f2fc210.jpg photo 259eresized_zps6bafd5f1.jpg photo 268cloneeresized_zpse732354b.jpg

I was taking pictures of the other kids on that bar and turned the camera on Ember and this is what she did:  photo 281eresized_zps11579f88.jpg photo 291eresized_zpsc9b56115.jpg

She’s such a goofball. I love her.

Then she and Payson hung out on this bar. Kids are so funny- climb on anything they see 🙂  photo 296eresized_zps31c99102.jpg photo 301bwresized_zpsfcd02b4e.jpg photo 302eresized_zps5276bf72.jpg photo 308eresized_zps2b960a56.jpg

Back on the road!  photo 311eresized_zpsd1655a21.jpg photo 317eresized_zps24245843.jpg photo 325eresized_zps129a34c1.jpg photo 326eresized_zps510bea74.jpg photo 329eresized_zps18a207a7.jpg photo 335eresized_zps1b3f5564.jpg photo 346eresized_zps9a75e09e.jpg

A few hours later we stopped for lunch at a Burger King.  photo 354eresized_zps181bb823.jpg photo 359eresized_zps860da7a7.jpg

We let the kids play around for a while.  photo 363eresized_zps4de1d208.jpg photo 368eresized_zps9f25c305.jpg photo 370eresized_zps3eb3b9b2.jpg

Allan showed Brooke where we were and where we were going on the map.  photo 373eresized_zps58063a35.jpg photo 375eresized_zpse5e861e8.jpg photo 383eresized_zps03937e7d.jpg photo 391eresized_zpsa44e5718.jpg

Oh I should probably mention I sat in the back by Everett during the entire trip. Brooke sat in the front seat by Allan.  photo 400eresized_zps4d9bca99.jpg photo 410eresized_zpsb1fb1e53.jpg

This was over half way there and I was getting bored. So… play with the camera, right?  photo 435eresized_zps54adc423.jpg photo 466eresized_zps4a9ab35a.jpg

Entertaining the baby as best as I can in a car.  photo 473eresized_zps2d5912f6.jpg photo 480eresized_zps6763c008.jpg photo 486eresized_zps19b36644.jpg photo 496eresized_zpsf859bcfe.jpg photo 507eresized_zpsdb9e5e5d.jpg

Stopping at a gas station across the street from the Welcome to Nevada sign.  photo 541eresized_zps94ebcd94.jpg photo 544eresized_zpscbf1956c.jpg photo 546eresized_zps5975b4dd.jpg

Everett’s third state to live in in his 9 months of age!  photo 564eresized_zps5ddb6ef3.jpg photo 567eresized_zpsa73d20ec.jpg

It was starting to get dark. We were all excited to be getting closer to our new home!  photo 597eresized_zpsaa0b4813.jpg photo 598eresized_zpscc153953.jpg photo 615eresized_zpsb573e487.jpg photo 647eresized_zpsfecf9a7c.jpg photo 652eresized_zps73495805.jpgWe got to the townhouses where we were going to stay and Allan unloaded mostly everything while I watched the kids (and held and breastfed Everett mostly) inside.  photo 664eresized_zpsbfa2d3ef.jpg photo 674eresized_zpscd812e25.jpg

We didn’t have a bed for Everett so when he was getting super cranky we tried to lay him in this suitcase to see if he’d just hang out but… no. He did get a kick out of it at first though.  photo 687eresized_zpsbdd26149.jpg
