Road Trip Update

us at Wendy's in ... um.... somewhere - LMBO!!!

In the pool

in the hotel

OK, so it's not WordArt related, but I just had to check in and tell you all about my progress. We're almost to Iowa City, Iowa!!! It's 2:43 pacific time, and we're at McDonalds. Kids are eating happy meals, and playing with their toys. I'm on their Wi-Fi, and drinking my water, and my mom is loving it all! We're having a lot of fun, but it's a crazy time driving so much!!!

We stopped at Urbana/Champaign last night to sleep, and the kids got a few mintues in the pool, and LOVED IT!!! it was a bit chilly in the outdoor pool, but it sure felt good after all the heat. Grandma even came part-way in the pool - heheheh (she's a non swimmer - LOL!)

We're hoping to get across Nebraska today, but we'll see how it goes. Driving with no A/C with a truck full of kids is always ...... fun!!! Hehehehe. I do have a quick story. About an hour ago, a trucker flagged us down, telling us to pull over. But then they sped past, and we didn't know why. We pulled off, and checked the load, and it was all the same as it had been. Then unnurved us a bit. But, as we stopped at McDonalds, I noticed that one of the cargo net straps (that had broken back in Ohio) was hanging, and I BET that was what that trucker had seen. Phew! That sure scared us :)

Don't you just love wi-fi! I can't believe you just drank some water. That is why you are so thin....

I think I need to try that water diet too!

Best wishes for a safe trip! I'm so sorry you don't have A/C - that would kill me!

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hope you get through Nebraska--it is a LONG HAUL!

When you get to Omaha, wave!

Make your kids groan with these:

"You've got a "Friend" in Nebraska"

"Did you know there's a Beaver Crossing, Nebraska? Must take him a long time!"

Eat at Chances R in York if you the "Chance". (That's serious though, they make a mean Bean and Ham Soup.)

O.k..so...yeah...it's a boring drive. Where else do you think I came up with these!?

Keep driving safe!

Glad to hear that the trip is going well so far. I would say that yes that is what the trucker saw, as they have to look closely for things like that on their loads and it becomes automatic to notice those things(my hubby is one).
