Newly Weds driving around the United States of America!

North America » United States » California » San Diego July 6th 2011

The past two days have been splendid! Outside of the atrocious California drivers and traffic (We saw one guy in a fit of road rage throw a large cup of soda out his window at another car) we have been having a wonderful time on the west coast! We stayed in the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego right on the bayfront for the evening of July 4th. We ate out at a seafood restaurant in the Seaport Village and then watched the fireworks from the comfort of our hotel room. It was romantic and relaxing. Today we spent 5 hours exploring the San Diego Zoo and then drove north to Dana Point just south of Laguna Beach. We walked on the beach here and then watched the sunset and saw some seals resting on a bou ... read more

It has been a crazy few days! Being without internet since we were in Kansas has been painful! But we are happy to update the blog briefly now. We drove from Lawrence, KS to Colorado Springs where we visited the Focus on the Family world headquarters and enjoyed some smoothies at Whit's End! We bought a few books at the bookstore and then headed off to the hotel. Before dinner we drove 10 minutes south to Garden of the Gods and were amazed at the beautiful rock formations; it was overcast so we could not really see the mountains that evening. When we woke up the next morning there was a dazzling view of the Rocky Mountains including Pikes Peak. We stopped by Garden of the Gods again and took more pictures and then started our ... read more

North America » United States » Missouri » Saint Louis June 29th 2011

Day 2 was a full day! We drove to St. Louis and arrived there around lunchtime. On the agenda was going up the Gateway Arch at the Jefferson Expansion National Monument. This was accomplished with flying colors. The underground history displays were phenomenal describing the westward expansion following the Louisiana Purchase. We took the tram up to the top and enjoyed the beautiful views of St. Louis from the top! We ended up about an hour past Kansas City in Lawrence, KS for this evening. Now off to bed so we can make good time on our way to Colorado Springs, tomorrow! Thanks for your prayers and reads! Hope you enjoy some of the sweet pics we took of the Arch! ... read more

North America » United States » Tennessee » Nashville June 28th 2011

We are sitting at a Days Inn near Clarksville, TN thinking about the first day of our journey together. We had safe travels and made good time deciding not to stop for lunch in Knoxville, but rather to drive straight on to Nashville so as to be able to spend more time touring there. We parked in some public lots and walked around the entire town center seeing: The Country Music Hall of Fame, the Nashville Visitor Center, the Tennessee State Capitol, the Ryman Auditorium (The Birthplace of Bluegrass), and Nashville's broadway which featured live country singers inside every restaurant along the strip! We then both ate burgers at the Hard Rock Cafe downtown right across the Cumberland river from LP Field, the home of the Tennessee Titans! After driving toward the west end of town, ... read more
