We are not early to bed. We are (were) early to rise. But I can't say that we are healthy, wealthy, and wise. Who said those crazy words? ; )
We left late today..lots of reasons, but none good enough. An early trip to Honda to see if we could find Ethan’s Leapster Explorer (7am)…only to find it at home! Ches made two trips to Wal-Mart, got movies at Red Box, we packed a last minute cooler with drinks and all our yogurts, fruits and veggies, and we didn’t leave till about 11:40! Much too late to start an almost 10 hour road trip…we totally know better.
Here are the kids just riding…we took out the middle row center seat, and it seems like we have so much more room!
|The blue shirts were a good call for all the blueberry eating they did! : ) (Oh-and Clay finally got the *bottled* Coke he's been asking for!)|
|Sweet girl. She insisted on taking this Paradise Princess shirt...so I let her wear it on the driving day! : ) heehee|
|It's just gorgeous.|
|We were driving around the brick streets of LaClede's Landing, but there were lots of...bars. Here are the Rum Jungle and the Drunken Fish. ; )|
|This is the church by the arch, but you can only park there for Church. But..there are no posted times..so I guess it's more of a St. Louis members-only club. ; ) Love the steeple though!|
Now east on Interstate 70 to Indianapolis...
We are finally here-at 11:30 at night! We are paying for all that free time this morning. And we forgot about the time change, so it's really 10:30 our time (I think...it confuses me! Especially since my computer clock now says 11:36, and my phone says it's 12:26 here!)
Whew. On to the Indianapolis Children's Museum tomorrow, a visit with Hallie, and the drive to Washington, PA! Woohoo, love vacation! : )
