A little bit delayed


April 11, 2009

Not a good day at all. I was sick last night. And I don't think that it was the flu. My nerves went crazy and it just happened.

Here is my son...taking up the whole bed

So, I was in bed all day. My hubby and little boy did go to Wal-mart for me. Got me soup and crackers. They also got me some Sprite Zero, but I did have to share that. Little Donny loves it.

By afternoon, I was feeling a little better, but I let the boys go have fun. They were going to go to the aquarium, but they had weird rules. It was 2pm and you couldn't get in until 4pm. Whatever.

So, they got back and I took a nap. A 3 hour nap actually. And I felt good when I woke up. So we went to the mall that was right across the street. What an interesting place. Went back to the hotel and by 10pm we were all sleeping.

Hoping tomorrow will be better...

On our way!

Up early to rain. And to the chance of more storms ahead. Just hoping to miss them.

So, we were on the road by 9am. We were up around 8 and packed the truck up. Stopped for a bite to ear at the free continental breakfast. Donny actually ate really well, a blueberry muffin and frosted flakes. Oh yeah, some apple juice too.

We got going and it was wer and chilly. By 10am, Little Donny was sleeping. By 11am, I was sleeping. Just driving along. Donny woke me up as we were starting to go up the mountain. It is such an awesome sight.

Once we got thru the mountains and into Georgia we stopped for lunch. At a Wendy's. It was good, but the place was dirty. We then continued on to our hotel. Got there around 4pm. Very cool. Something like 16 floors.

We were going to go out to dinner, but because of the chance of bad weather we didn't. So we stayed in the room and watched the tv. We had decided to order Pizza Hut for dinner. By 8:30pm we were under a tornado warning. Not exactly what we needed. So we continued to watch the tv and they talked about Murfreesboro, TN. We drove thru there at about 11am. They said that the storms hit around noon. And they were 14 homes destroyed...and something like 3 tornados. It was nasty. We were a little more lucky in Atlanta and had just rain. We did go thru two warnings..the second was down graded to a severe thunderstorm warning. The worst went north and south of us. But it still managed to get my nerves going and I didn't feel so great when I went to bed.

Our Journey Begins!


April 9, 2009

Our journey has begun a day early. There are storms set to hit the mountains and we really don't want to drive thru that. It wouldn't be good.

So we got going around 3:30 pm. Hoping to get to Nashville tonight. But we will see. Stopped to gas up in Vicksburg and then we were on our way. We have a long trip ahead of us, but we are so ready for this!

Stopped for lunch in Coldwater (of course at McDonald's) then onto the highway. Headed south. By 5:45 we were just south of Ft. Wayne. Potty break time. By 6pm we were back on the road. Pretty cloudy now. So I am sure we will see some rain at some point.

Got into Kentucky by 8:30 pm. Louisville is awesome. Can't wait to see more of it. Maybe even go and see a baseball game. =) Stopped for gas just outside of Louisville and by 10:30pm we were in our hotel room. Sleeping before 11:30pm

We are here

We have been in Florida now for a couple days.

I will be posting more in the next couple of days, as I am going to kinda put a journal on here of what we did. So it will actually say the date that it was, but be posted like today.

I will also put pictures with my post, as I already have over 200...and that just keeps growing!

So I will be back to update you all later....

Florida = 5 Days!!!

So we are on the homestretch to Florida!!

We have begun packing and we have been getting things around to take with us. Donny and I went shopping last weekend to buy things that we were need. And we had fun picking stuff out!! He got an orange bucket for the beach and some other beach toys.

I have also purchased snacks to take with us. We still need to get more though. We have pringles and fruit snacks. We need to get some small bags of chips, some bottled water...and whatever else we want to take.

We also still need to go and buy diapers so that we have those ready to go. And I think that I need to buy myself an outfit or two. I need some new shorts and I would like some new shirts. We will see though.

So as you can see we are pretty excited about our trip. I can't wait. It is supposed to be awesome weather as the 80's!!!

We will be taking our computers with us so that we can post pictures and I can clear off my memory card ( i know that I will take a lot of pictures...that is normal for me) =)

Yes, I will keep you updated as well!
