Day One!

Hi Ya'll!

We left our sweet state of Louisiana this morning...

Crossed our very swollen Mississippi River...

and had to make a very important decision.

Do we go as planned toward Dallas?
Do we play it safe and stay south away from the storms.

We played it safe!

Hi Houston!

Although it will put us behind a bit I know that we did the right thing.

After all...we have precious cargo...hehehe.

Speaking of precious cargo..

She bout had a fit when she saw the Dairy Queen's!

We don't have any
 near us.

You would think with all this sugar she would have been hyped.


You didn't think we would leave Miss Heidi behind did you :)

We saw miles of rocks.

How cool are these!

I wish their gas prices were as cool.


After 700 miles and a night swim ...

It's lights out for us.

Sweet dreams~

  7. When my family took road trips my Dad could NOT pass by a Cracker Barrel (the 1st stop in Gonzales) or a Dairy Queen without stopping in. I don't know how he stayed so skinny eating all that food! Must be a guy thing.

    Be safe y'all!

  8. I can't wait wait for the rest of your trip. I'll hold down the fort in LA while you're gone, ha!
