After the visit we headed home to Minneapolis, by way of Des Moines to switch out the Denali for the Odyssey. It was a VERY long day, full of bad weather (why, oh why is my mom ALWAYS right when she tells me that a roadtrip is not the best idea in January because of the weather in the midwest??). Luckily Rorie and I could switch off driving, which totally helped to stay alert and focused. We were SO tired when we finally arrived home that night-- but it was a very successful and eventful road trip. One we will always remember!
