Road Trip!

This weekend has been crazy! We left before 7:00 a.m. on Saturday to drive 10 hours for Russ to try-out at a congregation for their preaching position. Chloe Jo did really great the whole time. She only cried for the last 45 minutes coming back home! She did sleep a lot on the road, but slept all night so I can't complain. So what did we do to keep ourselves entertained on a 10 hour road trip?

1. I took lots of pictures.
2. I sang a few songs.
3. Chloe Jo stared at me while I sang a few songs.
4. I took video of myself.

5. We saw funny billboards.
One billboard said "And God so loved Memphis. John 3:16" I don't think Memphis is actually mentioned by name in that verse!
Another said "Booze it and lost it." I think they just made a grammatical error...but, they are from the south so who knows!
6. We went sight-seeing. This actually turned out 10 hour drive into a 12 hour drive on the way back.
This capitol building was quite beautiful with it's marble and stained glass. And of course it was decorated for Christmas. I've never had the pleasure of being in a capitol building around Christmas time.
We had a good trip and really enjoyed the area we went to and the congregation we worshipped with. Hopefully they felt the same about us!

I always like when people post videos of themselves. Now we all know what you sound like. Looks like you had fun on your road trip!

Looks like you had a good time! 10 hr drive there and back does not sound fun!
