The final day(s) of our adventure were pretty uneventful. I was actually very happy with uneventuful, its not as much fun to blog about, but it sure did keep us happy on the road. Our overall trip we had 3 flat tires, once incident of running out of gas, a full power outage in a town so we had to wait to get gas, a broken window, and a case of the bed bugs, but boy do we have stories to tell and we enjoyed our journey!
This last part of our trip was “quick”. We didn’t site see we just cruised as we were all pretty antsy and ready to be in Florida.
We had gotten up and rolling pretty early and had forgotten all about our map. So when we stopped for dinner in Mississippi we showed the kiddos where we had been that day, and where we were headed.
We had pulled off the nearest highway exit once we entered Mississippi looking for food. If you have traveled the roads from Louisiana into Mississippi it is really an incredible drive. I wish I had taken more than just cell phone pictures, but it is miles and miles of swamps and wetlands. Kynnlie was in awe of all the water that we were driving over, it was such a neat part of the country. But because of this there really wasn’t anywhere to stop and we were all pretty hungry so once we finally hit an exit we just hoped there would be somewhere to land for food.
We found a little dive off the beaten path of our route and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was really good, and we even treated the kiddos to blue bell milk shakes for the road. 🙂 As we pulled into Alabama it was getting late and I didn’t want to wake kids for the picture. So, poor little Kynnlie was half awake so her and daddy stood in for me. And finally we found the state line of Florida! Late night but we made it and from the state line had about an 8 hour trip in the next day.
Thank you for following us on our road trip and I know this journey just begins a new adventure of living in a state that Rob and I know nothing about. But, I know we have so many people out there supporting us and praying for our family that no matter where this adventure takes us we will succeed. Thank you everyone, we love you all!
