Our southwest 2011 trip has come to an end and today we are headed back home. This trip has been fun but much too short at only 2 weeks. It is probably also going to be one of our last trips until next year so we are savoring every last moment we have.


“Ok Ava, you can take that Las Vegas rock home as a souvenir.”


Of course before we headed out, we went back to Ava’s favorite buffet for one last meal. Amazingly, they were running a $5 lunch special. Ava is going to eat them out of business.


This is Mila vigorously nodding her head about the great deal we got.


The drive home is a long one. Not quite as long as last year when we drove 550 miles straight from Grand Canyon in one day. That might not be a lot for most of you, it is asking a lot for a couple of toddlers strapped to their car seats.


With the road behind us and memories of a great trip, we headed back towards California. On our way home, we decided that this would actually be a good time to drop the ole Mish off at the shop for some repairs.

During the trip, we noticed some leaks that will need to be repaired before it turned into bigger problems. One of the other major issue we encountered just as we were packing up to leave Vegas was that the black water flush valve was leaking into the inside. Lucky for us, it only lets in fresh water as we try to flush the tank and not the waste water.


We made it to C&G Trailers in Bellflower, CA late in the evening. With the girls snoozing away in the van, I dropped the keys in the mail slot and shut the doors on Mali Mish. The next trip can not come soon enough…

over and out,
