I thought I was going to be on top of things and post pictures from each day of my road trip. But this road trip wasn’t really for blogging. I was spending quality time with my Steven before school and deployment, and the blogging started to get in the way. So I stopped for the rest of the trip, and now I’m home!

It was really hard to say goodbye, but I know I will see him again soon. Well, maybe not soon, but sometime. Now it’s back to Skype calls, care packages, and emails. 🙂

Anyway, I did take a bunch of pictures after I decided not to blog, so I thought I’d share them with you!

The road trip itself was 2 weeks long, and the driving took about 20/26 hours each way. We visited Austin and Corpus Christi, Texas.
