Yesterday was a travel day. We checked out of our fabulous lodge suite at the Plaza Resort and set out for SanDiego CA. The landscape on the way was amazing. It went from red rock mountains, to brown dead looking no mans land, to beautiful white sand for as far as the eye could see, then all of a sudden it looked like God had taken his big dumpster of of huge rocks and dumped them out into big piles for miles and miles. We had quite a few border checks driving along Hwy 8, but they never found our Nacho :-). We also went from 97 degrees to 74 by the time we had reached the San Diego Area. At some point at a gas stop Ken thought the truck was acting up :( good ol chevy! Sure enough Ken found a Chevy dealer this morning bright and early that confirmed "yes you need a new fuel pump"+ a filter and computer programming and some stabilatrak thingy and 1400later we are good to go. Thankfully it is covered under the warranty we purchased! So all we have really lost is time.
Today we get to see the Alves girls. All three of them!!!! The kids are so excited. They used to babysit for us and have become like family to us over the years. But it has been over 2years since we have seen them. So today is going to be fun!
