It’s going to take several pics to get caught up but here we go. We were in the Reno snow and cold and felt like we needed to thaw out a bit sooooo within an hours time the kiddos and I had two backpacks and a trader joes bag packed in a rental car. We drove to dad to say goodbye and pick up a few things then we hit the road. First stop was the Donner Memorial. We drove through here last year in October but I was on crutches so I didn’t actually get to see it up close. Soooo cool !!! Next stop was Sacramento. It was dark but we drove past the Capitol. After several hours on the road we stopped at a little motel 6 just outside Bakersfield and got a good nights sleep. Next stop….
