I'm linking up late in the weekend because I wanted to return home before I hit the publish button. I thought maybe I was on vacation, but I learned from this article that I was actually on a trip. If you've ever slept somewhere other than your own bed at home, go click on that link and have a good laugh. Then come back and finish reading my post. (Disclaimer: I do not agree 100% with the article's author, so if you are extended family, do not be offended. Opinions expressed in that article do not necessarily reflect my own feelings.)
Whatever it was that we experienced, it was fun. My thankfuls (and photos) exceed 10, but my time to get this written is short. (I'm typing this Sunday morning in a motel room in St. George, Utah, before we get on the road again. I'll publish it when we have arrived home.) This post will cover the first part of the trip, and I'll do another post later this week so I can share photos of the Grand Canyon.
Without further ado, come along on my road trip! I'm thankful:
1. For road signs that always make me smile.

2. For rain. (More on that in another post.)

5. For a short hike after a long car ride.
