Robert, Clara, and I had the pleasure to FINALLY get a vacation!! We haven't had one in over a year and for us, that is an eternity!! Our friends were kind enough to let us intrude on them for a couple days. The journey there was long but once you get about 6 hours outside of Dallas the scenery can be quite pretty. The desert has its own kind of beauty. We were both shocked at how well Clara traveled. She was fun, cute, and playful the entire way except for maybe an hour the whole time where she was getting cabin fever, but who can blame her, it is a long drive.
