This weekend, John and I made the trek back home for my dad's birthday and Easter! We love going home to see all of our family and friends, but 8 hours, one way, is a long drive to spend less that 48 hours with everyone. There is just never enough time, but we all make it work!
When we go back to Mississippi, we always bring the dogs with us. They love going back home to see everyone just as much as we do, and they are great car riders! Layla, the great dane, and Penny, the great dane/lab mix, are technically John's dogs. He got them before I came along, but I love them like my own.

Layla has a new found love for being covered up with a blanket while she is snoozing!
My girls - Bell, the beagle, and Sophie, the basset hound - stayed with my parents when I moved up here. It just didn't seem fair to make them leave everything they had known for forever. They have always slept with my parents (I think because my bed was much smaller), and they have a huge backyard to run around in.

All four girls finally met this weekend, which was quite an interesting time. They all did really well, but it was too chaotic to try and snap a picture. I know, blogger fail.
I hope you all had a Happy Easter! John and I saw this beautiful sunset on the way home last night, while passing a bus going to Guadalajara. I looked it up to see how far away they were from their destination - only 1 day and 3 hours. Ermahgerd!
