On The Road Again

We left our apartment in Sunnyvale very late yesterday evening. Our intentions were to be out of there by 2 p.m., but it didn't happen. Our last two days were chaotic with a little bit of random mixed in. We did manage to enjoy a firework show with several of our friends. It was so nice to have everyone together one last time. Despite the fact that I didn't cry when I said goodbye, I'm really sad about leaving the friends we've made there and our family.
We spent the night at David's brother's house and had a nice breakfast with him and his family. Then we headed to Bakersfield to visit my older sister for a few hours. We're now traveling east on highway 40 towards the Grand Canyon. The cats are snuggled sweetly into their carrier and are very unhappy about it. The dogs are asleep on the middle seat and the rest of us are enjoying the quiet of night time driving. Erin is keeping us amused with her beautiful rendition of "Skater Boy". We'll be burning the midnight oil tonight as we plan on making it to Williams, AZ before pulling in for the evening. Thank you Motel 6 for your 24 hour front desk and for allowing pets! We'll be visiting the Grand Canyon tomorrow morning before heading to OK.

Dear Sandra,

I’m working with to promote this summer’s Best Baby Bump Contest (, and I would like to invite parents-to-be such as yourself to enter their best pregnant belly photos on the website before September 30, 2008. One winner will receive a $2,500 prize.

Liz Zack, Executive Editor of Parents magazine, says, “We want you to take your best pregnant belly photos – from little baby bumps to big pregnant bellies – and enter them into our Baby Bump Contest. While you’re there, share and comment on other people’s pregnant belly photos, too.”

As a blogger, you represent an important and influential part of the online community. In addition to entering, Parents invites you to spread the word and encourage your readers to vote for you and enter their own photos in The Best Baby Bump Contest.
