Stayed at a waterpark in some tiny town in Iowa. The kids loooved it.
Drove through Illinois and stopped off at Nauvoo for a couple of hours.
Made a rope at the Family Living Center, got a brick at the kiln, ate a gingerbread cookie at the bakery. Noah loved it. Avery is not going back until she is MUCH older.
And somewhere in Missouri this happened too -
Drove on to St Louis where we stayed for the night.
Huge room, so nice. Swam (er hot tubbed) with the kids and ordered pizza.
Stopped at 7-11 in downtown St Louis where we were afraid for our lives.
Then did the St Louis Arch.
Then back on the road.
Stayed in Nashville, Tn that night.
The kids embarrassed us at a mexican restaurant.
And Noah barfed in the car when I made him clean up the mess he made in his cup holder (soggy goldfish floating around in juice).
Stopped at Old Stone Fort State Park in TN. Hiked around, saw the falls and the indian ruins.
Drove on to Atlanta Georgia.
Stayed with our good friends the Laings.
Had so much fun, thank you Steve and Kim!
Drove the last 6 hours into Florida!!
Picked up Paul's rental car, stopped at the hospital to get keys to our place, got settled in the apartment, got a few groceries.
Didn't stop me and the kids from hitting the beach the next day!
We are in love.
