{On the Road to KC for Spring Break}

Last Saturday morning (well, it was probably over a week ago), Mike woke me up at 1:00 a.m. and said "let's go...." so we loaded up the truck, woke our sleeping beauties up, and away we left! We started driving (and I started sleeping, with my eye mask on, of course), and by the time we hit Dallas, Mike was starting to get sleepy. Thankfully we have a great pit stop called "My sister in law Tiffany".... I felt so bad calling her at 6:30 a.m. whispering "Tiff... can we make a pit stop?" she was still asleep & said "when?" and I said "in 15 minutes.... just leave the front door unlock and we'll be quiet". So we arrive at Tiff's house, and within minutes my nephews were out jumping on the trampoline w/ my girls at 6:45 a.m.... I'm sure the neighbors were thrilled!

After eating some yummy pancakes, and sampling some "umm...that's just not right" sourdough pancakes made by my BIL Dan (sorry Dan!).... Mike woke up from his 3 hour nap and we left again.

Katie borrowing my eye mask & getting some beauty sleep in the back of the truck

We finally arrived in KC after driving through a ton of major winds in Oklahoma at about 6:45 that night. Thankfully my "Night at Rodanthe" by Nicholas Sparks book kept me occupied. I finished it in one day. (sidenote: why does everything he writes, someone has to die?) Started on "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult shortly before we got to KC.

Arrived in KC, ate some delicious mexican food prepared by my MIL. Visited, then drop dead asleep.


  1. Isn't is great to have family you can call like that? Well the first part of your trip sounds like it was good!

  2. Its probably a good thing it wasn't me in Dallas. We turn our ringer off-- hahah:) I know that had to be a misserable drive, but hopefully the trip was well worth it.
    ps-- I need to get one of those masks for P so she wont wake up to the sun everyday!

  3. The picture of Katie is the best! :)

  4. We love having you guys, even if it is 6:30 in the morning. We would take you anytime (well, maybe anytime...hahaha!!) We can't wait to see you again!!
