Road Trip!!!

What does a suburban look like stuffed to the RIM with necessities for a move 
half way across the country?? 
A 22 hour venture??

And yep - we got it closed!  And could even partially see out the back!!

So we finally got on the road around 2pm on Wednesday, Oct 12th.  
We made it as far as Asheville the first night.
We stopped before we were really ready, 
but I am kinda glad we did, 
cause I-40 through the mountains
was both beautiful and white knuckling!
There aren't too many vehicles on the road that intimidate me
in that big ole beast...
being squeezed between a 6' tall concrete wall and a semi...
I am intimidated!  

BUT - we did get a few good pics on the way...

Day 2:
We made it all the way through Tennessee but it was 
dreary and rainy and we didn't stop...we made it all the way to
Little Rock, Arkansas.
I loved seeing all the green along the highway in Tennessee.

Here is the only picture worthy of posting of our venture through 

(This should be a advertisement for Britax! - ha!)

After a day in the car, we decided to stop in Dallas
and do some sightseeing...
So because I love my oldest son,
who has been brainwashed by his father...

We visited Cowboys Stadium!
And even got to walk on the field!!

Needless to say - it was pretty overwhelming!
We can't wait to go back and take Daddy...
I actually got to call him while standing on the star...
Pretty neat experience!

We also went to a park nearby and
burned off some energy.

 (Who knew you could fit two little ones in the same swing?)

We got back on the road headed south toward San Antonio
on Friday evening about 7pm, we still had about 5 hours 
ahead of us - but we were ready to get there...
however, we had not idea what exactly
we would be arriving to...
no bed for A nor Nana,
was there coffee in the house?

So instead of sticking it out 
and making it all the way into San Antonio
we stopped in Temple, Texas...
where is Temple, Texas?  About 3 hours north of
San Antonio!  

And how did we definitely know we were
in Texas?

The Texas shaped waffle iron at our hotel,
of course!

So after our Texas shaped waffles...
we piled back in the suburban and 
headed south again...

We finally arrived, 
almost exactly 4 days
after we started...
Saturday, October 16th
right around noon.
(noon CST made it 1pm EST)

And in case anyone needed reminding
why we made this venture...

He's worth it!
