on the way there..

we have made this trip 4 times now & we have our preferred route our rr stops all mapped out
- but -
- and you know - everyone has a big but -
this time - i was on my own with the boys -
daddy had to stay home the first part of our trip so i was doing the driving

don't be too surprised when i say -
i was pretty amazing:-)

we left home around 4pm on friday
and passed through...


with virtually no incidents
-unless you count the entire chili's debacle-
which involves following a sign on the interstate and getting lost for about an hour and then finally saying SCREW THIS and eating at the sonic

i stopped in jackson mississippi for the night around 12:30 am - after having trouble getting off the freeway and onto the correct feeder road
- i can't get left -

the morning brought FREE BREAKFAST for kids under 12
guess what?
my kids are under 12!!!!!

it's very possible that they changed their policy after we left:-)

then off to...

and into.........

we made it to the house around 5pm
and WOW WEE NONNIE!!!!!!

some new song lines that make me smile :-)

put a little gravel in your travel

shake it for the crickets and the critters and the squirrels

hittin easy street in mud tires

we like corn bread and biscuits and if it's broke around here we fix it

the only worry in the world - is the tide going to reach my chair

proud to be on the right side of the dirt

just adjust your attitude because you're just a man

...pics of florida coming soon...
