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!
