Portland, OR Day 1

Hey guys......

We made it to Portland, OR today.....It was a pretty drive...not as good as Montana but pretty none the less. My wonderful husband has stayed up to late the last couple of nights, so he is passed out (has been since 7:30) He is so cute when he sleeps...lol That means we won't be out and about tonight but we are gonna see a movie tomorrow, do some shopping, and see some sights.

OH, I almost forgot....I ate fish for dinner! I know you can all stop freaking out...lol It wasn't so bad but it isn't something I am going to be doing often.... :)

I drove again today so not to many pictures......

One of us is usually driving so you don't get many pictures of us together...lol

Sand Tornado......It is hard to see but there were so many, it was awesome!

Wind turbines ( I think that is what they are called)

There is a snow covered mountain off in the distance

They were generating......I have only ever seen them generate from the bottom....never use the overflows.....

That's all for tonight guys!

Love ya

Spokane, WA

Hello from the Pacific Time Zone!

I will also say that the time differences are killing me! It is only 9:30 here and I have been ready for bed for about 2 hours.....lol

Right now we are eating dinner (thank God for room service b/c I wouldn't make it if we had to leave for dinner) in our totally awesome room at the Hilton in Spokane, WA courtesy of one very AWESOME Sherry.....and I think she might have told them it was our honeymoon :) b/c there was a really great basket waiting for us. We have stayed in several hotels in the last few days but this one is the best so far. Thank you 100 times over Sherry!

I drove most of the day so I really only have pics in from in Yellowstone, but they are some of the best!

The sign leading in......

For the record....yes the white stuff is snow!

Small Geyser that was erupting.....

Old Faithful.....sorry guys we couldn't wait for it to go off.


That's all for tonight guys....I am sooooooo very tired!

Love ya

Cody, Wyoming

Hey guys!

I don't have any really exciting stories today....well except that I killed a bird with my truck....and it got stuck and Justin had to dig it out of the grill with a plastic spoon! YUCK!

I don't have as many pictures today (esp Colorado, b/c I was driving) I did take a ton in Wyoming; it is the most beautiful state we have seen yet! If there were more people I think I would want to live here.

At any rate....here are some pics:

Yes, from the drivers seat! (CO)

I couldn't help it, I thought you needed to see what I was seeing. (CO)


There were three (appeared very old) tunnels.

Is that not just amazing!

Love you guys!

More tomorrow!

Hello from the Mountain Time Zone!
We did make it to St. Louis last night.....after a small detour. We would never get lost, not us, I give the best directions ever....lol At any rate we made it, the hotel was ok even with a double bed. We left about 8 this morning for Denver which included crossing the complete states of Missouri and Kansas. Can I tell you that the people in Kansas do not eat! We stopped at three exits trying to find a place to eat and NOTHING! We ended up waiting until just in side the Colorado line and ate a local steak house.

After dinner it was my turn to drive (since I haven't driven since we left Tennessee) I wasn't in the driver seat 10 minutes and got pulled over for doing 43 in a 35. I had no idea the speed limit was 35 in towns at home it is 45. At any rate the officer was super nice and didn't give me a ticket but he sure made me think he was going to!
I also want everyone to know that I love this state! The speed limit on the freeway is 75 so I don't have to speed to feel like I am actually moving. In addition to that.....the roads are amazing! Not that we have bad roads in Tennessee because we don't, but following KY, MO, and KS. Holy cow it was time for a smooth ride........and way here are some pictures from today.....I am sure that I will have more tomorrow, we are heading toward Yellowstone and staying the night in Cody, WY (pray for us....it's a very small area but there weren't any other rooms available.


Just getting started!

Changing from KY to IL

I was going to try to take pics of all the state signs.....that didn't work out so well!

Kansas City


More Kansas

Even More Kansas

This is where my wonderful husband stopped for me to pee.....seriously!

I know my eyes are closed but it was way to bright to try again!

Made it to Colorado....yes those are dead bugs on the windshield!

Thought the sky was pretty :)
Almost to Denver

I thought these two turned out cool....so I am sharing them too!

More to come,

Hey Guys!

So I did it, I got married yesterday.....aside from a few in-laws moments the morning went just as planned. A few more people were there than we had planned but that was ok too.

Can I just tell you that I love him so very much! Just had to throw that out there...lol

We have left for our trip.....we are in Illinois now....Kentucky is crap! We are going to St. Louis tonight. We won't really get to see much though because we aren't going to get there until about 10:30 and then we have to leave kinda early for Denver in the morning. Tomorrow and Sunday are our longest driving days so I am not really looking forward to those...lol I mean we have fun in the car and all but even I can't play on the Internet that long.

Well I think that is all I am gonna write for now.....mostly because I am tired of holding the computer in my lap...lol

More tomorrow....

Mrs. Alcorn!
