The Adventure Begins!
5:00 a.m. came a little too quickly for my liking this morning. We quickly showered, packed up the Subaru with bikes, snacks and kids and said our sad goodbyes to the Anderson side of the family.
Ok, I was the sad one, the rest of the gang was raring to go.
We hit the road at 6:13 a.m.
Deke’s plan was to dance across each state line. His mind changed quickly when we got to West Virginia and tractor trailers whizzed past at a ridiculous rate. So we did the best we could. Oh, and we totally missed the “Welcome to Indiana” sign.
We pulled into our hotel this evening in Collinsville, IL (just east of St. Louis) nearly 12 hours after setting out this morning.
The boys have done some damage on the snack supply and I have threatened that tomorrow is a fruit and veggies ONLY day. They are currently blowing off some steam in the pool as I distractedly update all of you 🙂
Tomorrow we have tickets to the St. Louis arch and then will continue west, stopping for the night in Hays, KS.
Until then, carry on!
