We began our journey home from Utah.
We stopped in Denver, CO after a drive by Vail.
and through the Eisenhower-Johnson tunnel. It is 1.697 (eastbound) miles long. There’s a lot of other cool facts about it (like elevation, records, etc).
While there we dined at the Aquarium restaurant. That fish is bigger than my baby!
We had a great time reading all the signs in Kansas. There were tons more, and they added entertainment to the drive.
Then we proceeded to Kansas City, MO where we had ourselves some fine barbecue.

On our way to Columbus, OH we stopped and saw my friend Megan. It was a nice break from the car.
We also got to see the biggest cross I’ve ever seen. It stands at 198 feet in Effingham, IL.
Our next stop was Columbus, OH where we had pizza from Donato’s. Donato’s used to be owned by McDonalds. They make a good pizza.
Matthew was a great traveler. Stitch traveled in the backseat with Matthew, and aside from a few “Don’t step on the baby” did really well. He would curl up and rest his head on the carseat.
And, in case you were wondering….you can fit this much stuff, a dog, a baby, and 2 adults in a Toyota Corolla.
