So we road tripped it down to Florida recently when everyone thought we were flying. We have had that planned since August but just thought it would be fun to keep it a secret. We showed up at Kel's 3 hours before she thought she had to pick us up at the airport. I have to say that is the longest we have been stuck in a car with each other and we survived it. :)
The trip was nice with no major problems except for Georgia! Ugh! I would be happy to never drive through that state again. I've never been there and I think it's tainted for me now. There was so much holiday traffic and construction that it probably added 2 hours to our trip. We decided to stop for the night on the way down and back. I got awesome Hotel deals on Priceline by bidding my own price. It's a great idea if your not picky on your hotel by the way. They were both really nice hotels that I probably would have spent double on otherwise. We had such a great time having a low key week just hanging out and having Lucy entertain us! She has changed so much. I now say "oh my" all the time because she rubbed off on me. It was nice to have a week of no work, warmer weather, good food by Chef Mikolajczyk, cuddling with Bryan, playing with Lucy, and bonding with family.
On the way back we stopped in Chattanooga, TN and stayed in an older hotel in downtown. The hotel was really neat and the views around there were beautiful. We arrived very late that night because of the Georgia traffic that we didn't get to do anything in Chattanooga so we may have to make a trip back there one day.
Here Lucy is telling Uncle Matt "Oh my" because there are leaves on her slide. She tried cleaning them off herself.
