And still 1,000 km from home but that’s okay because we are in Edmonton, Alberta where we will spend Christmas with our two son’s and their families 🙂
So maybe I was a little excited to head home for Christmas, and maybe I had us on the road a little … okay a lot … earlier than we needed to be 😆 But I think hubby was also excited because he didn’t argue and he was awake long before I was!
With our coffee in travel mugs, we loaded our suitcases in the truck and headed to the airport in Phoenix. The quickest route is to head directly to I-8 and that means a very brief visit to California as we crossed over the Colorado River and exited onto the interstate. Our visit in California lasted all of two minutes before we crossed back over the Colorado River into Arizona. We had a quick stop at the Border Patrol station and then it was clear sailing to the parking garage.
We were treated to a beautiful sunrise!
By 8:30 a.m. the truck was tucked into its space at Sundance Airport Parking (only $37.00 for the week) and we were on the shuttle to the airport.
Once our bags were checked we cleared security and enjoyed a nice breakfast before boarding our flight. It was nice to fly out earlier in the day and we really enjoyed the view from the plane.
After clearing customs in Edmonton, Alberta we headed outside to meet our son and the rest of the evening has been spent visiting and snuggling with little grandbabies 🙂
Until next time …
