Traveling

All 3 Bushman kids traveled to San Angelo for the Christmas break. Adam's trip proved to be more eventful than ours did.
He, Dionna, and another girl from Midland loaded up in Adam's car to head from Provo to west Texas. They had barely started driving when Adam noticed smoke coming out of the steering wheel! He looked closer and saw flame! They pulled over, got out, got all their stuff out, and called 911. The fire department came and put the car out. My cousin, Daylen, came and got the kids (and snapped this picture with his phone). Miraculously, my Uncle Blaine was in the area and heading back to Texas that day so the kids hitched a ride with him and they made it! The car's totalled!
Our trip was very much less eventful. The highlight of our trip was this sunset. It was incredible.
I actually have a shot with a better background, but it was a hideous picture of me, so this one will have to do.Here are both of us and poor Susannah's little burn - yes it's a burn- on her neck. She got a new hair straightener and forgot that it was hot! :)
