On the Road Again

Road trip 2010
A three day trek across the country from Tennessee to Utah.
I am typing from a Fairfield Inn somewhere in Nebraska while my little boys watch Disney, my big boys are still asleep in their own room and Brad is in the exercise room. He started his training for a Half Marathon he is running this Fall. Pretty soon the 7 of us will descend upon the breakfast area and then hit the road again for our final leg! We will be at Grandma's and Grandpas tonight!!

Some of our highlights from "ROAD TRIP 2010" so far:
Listening to our road trip CD--songs included "Hit the Road Jack", "On the Road Again", "Another one Bites the Dust"
Ice cream cones and Redbox rentals at McDonalds
Car Bingo (from here, laminated and using washable markers)
Looking for license plates (Dad pays $2 for Alaska spotting, and $5 for Hawaii)
5 Ipods, 1 DS, and lots of books, Sports Illustarteds and Friends being circulated
and the BEST accommodations on the first night at our timeshare in
Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri...
what a BEAUTIFUL view of the lake off our back deck...

and our own personal hot tub to enjoy under the stars!

(by the way--Cannon was not in trouble--he was crying because he is mad that the "pool" is so hot!)
We have all decided that we are definitely going back there for a vacation!
It has been fun so far and the boys have been really great, but I am so happy that we are almost done!! I have been reading "The Lost Symbol". Have you read that? What did you think? I am sure I will finish it today on our last leg. Last leg--yeah!
(Sorry about no menu monday again--it will be back again someday!)

I love the water wings and the teary face in the last pic! Ah, to travel with all those boys! I have done the trip to Manitoba several times(12 hours) with my boys and no dad! Good times! Have fun visiting your family in UTAH!

I loved the list of things that you guys did. I just love reading your blog. It is like a glimpse of the real day-to-day stuff you guys do. I just love it! I'm glad you had a nice time at your Lake of the Ozarks condo. I'm telling you, next time spend some time there and go to Branson and Silver Dollar City! :)

The picture in the hot tub makes me laugh... it looks like it is overflowing literally, as well as with boys! It sounds like you guys made the best of a long trip. And we were SO SO SO excited to have you here.
