bright eyes, rain and a fogged up camera lens...

wow! things around here are CrAzY!  i will do my best to update you all but there is so much to tell and so much to show you i don't know how long this post might actually be.  so here goes...

we left new york early thursday morning on the 12th...bright eyes and all.


after a quick trip through mcdonalds for hubbys mUst have coFFee, we were off.  we knew the first day was going to be a loooooong one, and it was!  our first pit stop allowed everyone to scretch...


eat a bone...


and enjoy a homemade green smoothie.


it wasn't too long before dad was hollerin' at everyone to pile back in because we had more ground to cover. 

after another looooong stretch we stopped at a truck stop in pennsylvania...i think????


this just proves...truckers need church too...



those last two shots were by far my favorite! 

before long we were on the road again and after a few more stops for gas and food we ended up stopping for the night in ohio.  we found a small, close to the highway hotel and called it a night, but not before we did a little indoor swimming.


all in all we had a good first day.  the little one did great!  i couldn't have asked for a better first day.

the following morning we were up and at 'em and on the road, at least some of us were up and moving.


after a few spills...

lots and lots of pretzel stix...


and after plenty of pitstops...


we were overjoyed to see this badboy...


i was informed that before we stopped and called it a day we MUST stop here...


for things like this...


and this...

and of course this!!!


after spending waaaaaaay too much money on things that blow up or that light other things on fire we headed a little farther down the road...


and after about an hour or so, we finally called it a day.

saturday morning came very quickly, but we didn't mind, we were excited to get to kansas...to get home!


as you can tell at 630am in missouri it was already hot and muggy...blah!  my camera lens instantly fogged up the minute i stepped outside to take this pic of beloved packing the cars.  while dad was busy repacking and readjusting our stuff...


abbi kept watch over the pups...


while the boy packed. 

after check out we got gas, some coffee and mama's oatmeal.


is wasn't too long before we saw this...


it was then that we knew we were home.  we had traveled over 1400 miles in 2.5 days and how great it felt to FINALLY make it to kansas.  i plan on posting again soon about our place and all the other things going on, but for now i must end this post.  i have been working on this post for 3 days.  i post lots of pics which is why it takes me so long.  after previewing this blog post it dawned on me that maybe my readers don't want to see all these pics...then i remembered it is my blog and it only makes sense that if i like it that my readers would like it...right?  :)

anyhow, i hope all of you had a great weekend and an even better start to your week.  know that we are all doing well, just very busy. 

until next time...peace out!
