Thursday afternoon-- 3 p.m.
Today is the day! After we picked up the girls from school, they got changed and we headed off into the sunset.
Miss M is crying.
LP determines that flying was probably a better idea.
Al requires me to take the "Are you Ali or A.J.?" test from her Teen Beat. I am A.J.
Not sure what that means.
We are now in Kentucky! It is so pretty here. I know Kentucky has a redneck reputation but the hills are so beautiful. Try it, you might like it. It is a JanaSayQua 4 star recommended state. (Note: Mississippi and Iowa are NOT on that list.)
Around 7 p.m. we finally get around to eating dinner at a restaurant in Nashville. LP and I always pride ourselves in trying the cuisine of the locals, so we come upon a restaurant that fits the bill.
After watching Harry Potter and some sorcery business, all three are asleep, and LP and I try to crunch down some miles. Unfortunately we are exhausted so we get a Comfort Inn outside of Atlanta.
***Mrtl tangent here***
Have you ever stayed at a Comfort Inn? Now, my parents are the cheapest travelers known to Man and I have been forced to stay in many a no-tell motel in my day, and I just figured Comfort Inns were of the same genre. Oh not so! Down comforters, sleep number beds...it was pure heaven. And when my 7-year-old can make her own waffle in the morning, there ain't nothing better than that. ***end tangent****
So we sleep for a few hours, and get back on the road again. Pretty exciting stuff, huh? It can only get better....
Next up...Day Two and Arrival at the Mouse, LP style.
