Phelps Family Vacation 2011

This years family vacation was a lot different than in years past. Since Skylars still on his mission, Kendra just got married, Kaitlyn had to work, Alyssia had classes, and Gary was working in Alaska, our family vacation consisted of just Rick and I. Even though we traveled (mostly) with 2 other families, it was different since we didn't have any kids with us......... I think we are in the beginnings of a new era.
We were gone for 15 days and all but 4 of those days required some lengthy driving. We covered right at 5,000 miles and it's not something I want to try again anytime soon. Some stops on our trip included Winter Quarters, Nauvoo, Hannibal, Nashville, Gatlinburg, Memphis, OK City, Albequerque, Flagstaff, The Grand Canyon, and St. George.
