The Drive

Let me start by saying my kids have now been in more states than I ever had.
They win that contest.
I love K's map:
the states we moved from. It starts from one to 50.
(now that she is so well-traveled she thinks we are going to live in every state, cute)

We were in the car for about 46 hours, 5 travel days, 12 states, and 3 time zone changes.
(Arizona, New Mexico, Texas. Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, and Maryland if you were curious.) 
We stayed with Ben's sister and family (Kaytie, she rocks!) and Ben's Aunt and Uncle in St. Louis.
We also stayed in hotels 2 nights which the kids loved.
Something about swimming in a heated indoor pool and a breakfast buffet.

The double DVD player was great.
I think Ben had enough of Madagascar and "I like to Move it Move it," but all in all, the trip was great.
I had a bunch of coupons for FREE Mcdonald's drinks, so that was often our bathroom break:)

The most important part is that we made it to our new home.


  1. What an adventure! Our family is so spread out all of a sudden.

  2. your house lookes dreamy so different from AZ!

  3. Glad you made it and that I got to see you for a minute in Texas. Love your new house! Hope you are settling in.

  4. Wow, what an adventure. How long will you be in DC? Did you buy that house or are you renting? I am so jealous. It is such a fun place to live.

  5. So glad you started a new blog! Can't wait to hear about your adventures!

  6. How cute is your new home?!! Fun!
