12:41 PM Nashville, TN

Okay yes, I know it's taking us forever and a century to get anywhere, but you know....

We are learning not to have any predisposed expectations anymore. Because frankly, when traveling with children, especially a nursing infant, you're pretty much going nowhere fast.

We had a comfortable stay at the Comfort Inn last night because there was no room at the Inn. The Quality Inn, that is. Nice, big, comfy beds and my favorite amenity of all....CLEAN!

Sis woke up this morning and went to look out the window to see what Memphis, TN looked like.

Sis: Daddy?

Monk: Yes, Sis.

Sis: What's the red stuff all over the trees?

Y'all, my Texas born and bred child does not know what Fall foliage looks like!! She's read about it and seen it in books and movies, but when she got a real live glimpse of Fall, she just had no clue. This should tell y'all just how often we leave the state of Texas. Sad, really.

We had a lovely breakfast of Belgium waffles, sausage biscuits and Froot Loops, courtesy of our humble digs. It was delicious and better yet...FREE.

About 2 1/2 hours into our Northeastern journey we stopped at a rest area. Can I just say,'s getting colder. The girls played in the leaves and we took some cute pictures because we all know that Texas has no leaves.

Alright, technically it has leaves, it just has no seasons. It's all green and then one morning, after the temperatures have played 30 degree shift ping pong, we wake up and BAM! there are no leaves on the trees and it's winter.

We are currently trying to find sustenance in the form of Krystal's. If you have never had a Krystal's you are MISSING OUT! One can liken a Krystal's to the fine fare of White Castle. Or more affectionately know to some as, Gut Grenades.

What can I say? We're a classy bunch. And hungry too!

Sounds like your having a great time :) ...

I can't remember how I found your blog but I'm glad I did... I've really enjoyed reading over the past week or so.... :)

Oh my - what a trip. You're getting there though, slowly but surely. You ARE going through Indiana, right? We live close to Indianapolis, so think of us if you get near there.
Kevin was in Little Rock, AK until yesterday. Small world . . .

I'm so glad you found me!

We did have a good time despite our little setbacks. I'm just glad to be here and not really looking forward to the ride home. :)

We didn't go through Indiana, but I was thinking of how close I was to you.
That is really weird that Kevin was in AK when we were. Even smaller world!
