Ok. I have to apologize to everyone for being so upset last night about the KOA in Canute, OK. Here's what happened.
Guinness and I were walking around looking for a bathroom and the only one we found was locked and thats what sparked my to be so upset that I spend money on a room at a place with no facilities. I knew there was another building with laundry facilities, but I knew it was locked for the evening. However, the other bathroom was in that building, but there was access from outside.
So basically what all this boils down to is 1. there was a bathroom, 2. I am an idiot.
I must also apologize to Ray for not finding the bathroom and because of my fault she was forced to pee behind a tree in 20 degree weather, sorry baby.
Todays driving didn't feel that bad until the last 30 minutes or so. You get off of Interstate 17 onto a smaller highway (169) and from that point it feels like the road will never end. I swear the last half an hour felt as long as the first 20 hours.
The girls saw/walked in snow for the first time today. Guinness is so timid that she didn't know what to do, but Damar is tough as nails and trudged on through. I was a proud parent watching my girls experience something new.
Side note: Flagstaff, AZ is gorgeous. There was snow everywhere and the mountains were all covered in snow, it was great.
We are home. Right now I am laying in my old bed we had before South Africa and loving it. The house is small and "cute" (thats a Rachel word, I would never ever use a world like that to describe a home). I have already made a run to our local Wal-Mart, I am an American again. Cheers.
