Trip Pix

I promised the children that I would post pictures. I can't tell a fib to my babies so here you go CarlyJo and CassiJo. (Be good and do what Nana and Papa tell you to do. I hope they tell you to have fun and eat ice cream!)

Below: We are off. I am in the drivers seat honing my traffic skills. I'll keep you updated on how that is workin' out for me.

Look what is right across the street from our hotel!

Look what I got for us while UJ rested from the long drive. The bed was so comfy and he had the most comfy pillows ever and a nap took him as soon as we got there.

Below: We had it on good authority there was a good restaurant at this exit, but we couldn't find it, so we went to our good ole stand-by Cracker Barrel. It is just so fun to hear the music and eat good homestyle food, play games at the table and do a little shopping after a nice (quiet) meal.

Below:UJ kept to his usual: open faced beef samwich. Pretty tasty. I got some chicken tenders and who knew that asking for honey mustard was totally out of the ordinary. It took them a looooong time to bring it to me. (Sound familiar Susie?)

Any good southerner knows what this is. Any takers? Go ahead....guess what it is. Until Susie came to visit me I had no idea that this was a "southern" thing. What regional "food thing" do you have in your area?

Below: Uncle Joe is sitting on the porch after dinner waiting for another epiphany. (While we were at a Cracker Barrel in Tennessee he had an epiphany about country music as he looked out across the mountains as the sun was setting. I'll let him tell the story if he hasn't already.......)

Maybe I'll get in front of the camera for a few pics tomorrow. Stay tuned!


  1. It sure looks like the fun has already are dining well...yummy looking food and drink......

    Enjoy the trip and keep us posted!

  2. you being stoked that a starbucks was across the road from your hotel made me laugh, and bought back a funny memory of mine.

    ....about 5 years ago, wife and i and another couple drove to adelaide (9 hrs) for a long weekend. i was stoked when we got there that a pub was right across the road from our hotel....

    .....unfortunately it turned out to be a gay bar, - but i didn't realise until i had been there for about 2 hours.

  4. How can you be in a gay bar for 2 hours and not realize it? that ponderful..he is ponderous.

    So, this brings back all the good memories, how I loved the cracker barrel. Dang, those were fun times. I like your sunglasses.

    Be careful of escalators...once my shoelace got caught in one and it ripped off my entire leg...after awhile they put the leg back on me but ever since then i've walked with a limp

    I hope you are obeying the speed limit. Oh always do

  5. Hush puppies? I'm not a Southerner, so I don't know.

    You and Uncle Joe are so cute!

  6. LOVE that first pic!!!!

    I hope you've had a wonderful trip.


  7. In that first pic I look like I just woke from a coma.
