The Return Day 7: Mason, TX to San Marcos, TX to Houston, TX

Day 7:

Hallelujah this is the last day! Yay!

I started out the drive this morning. Only 3 hours to get from Mason to San Marcos and I was back home. Good stuff.

We unloaded the car in record time and the boys were off to Houston. They arrived 3 hours later. (Can you tell we really wanted to get home?)

No pictures to commemorate this drive or funny stories (though by the time Pedro’s car made it to my house it just seemed like everything wanted to fall apart!) But a good time to reflect on the amazing 3 weeks we had on the road and in Oregon. Here are some highlights of our trip.
