Join me, Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers, and The Homeschool Mother's Journal as we recap our week.
Hey y'all! If you read my last post you know, I haven't been missing in action, I was on a cruise! The week of the 25th I was so busy packing and then on the 25th we had already started driving so there was no time to post. The next week we were cruising. We didn't even get home until late on the night of the 3rd. It was a fun and exciting vacation, but it was an unforgettable journey.
Saturday, April 25 - Garden City, KS - Mount Pleasant, TX
I don't know how you start your vacations, but Bug starts hers by falling out of the bed and getting a black eye.

After we managed to get everyone dressed, hair fixed, teeth brushed we loaded up the van and left Garden City, KS, early. We fed the kids muffins in the van while we drove. Being the mean parents that we are they didn't get to play with electronics they had to play with dolls, read books, and play car games.

Mr. Mister alternated between playing with toys and throwing them at his sisters. He was actually very good considering it was an 8 hour day.
Mr. Daddy and I got to talk and enjoy spending time together. The drive through Kansas wasn't too bad since we didn't have to go through much.

Oklahoma was a new state for us to visit as a family. We stopped at this fun roadside attraction.

After we made it to Mount Pleasant, TX, we were happy to stop for the night. Mr. Daddy and I had full blown colds by his point so I had to make our traditional stop at a Walgreens. (The trip to Walgreens on every vacation started when I got sick on our wedding night and Mr. Daddy had to make a run to buy Pepto for me. It seems like we always have to make a trip for some reason or another every vacation. Now it's just a tradition.)
Sunday, April 26 - Mount Pleasant, TX - New Orleans
We ate a good breakfast at the hotel and loaded up the van and took off toward New Orleans. We spent most of our day driving through Louisiana. I had no idea it would take so long. We did stop at a beautiful rest stop in Louisiana and the girls got to rest in true southern belle style.
