Okay, the arrival time is now 3:05 am and we are on our way! Yiiipppppeeeeeeeee!
We've passed through peanut country, afternoon rain storms that come on summer days, a long delay, completely stopped in traffic, bathroom breaks (for 7 girls!), gas fill-ups and all the things that come with long road trips… including a change in time zone. I was just in this time zone last week and it will be good to be back. Hello Eastern Time! We have two cars full headed down to the beach for the Fourth of July weekend. I am so excited… we all are! The 12 hour plus car ride will be more than worth it when I am laying out in the warm summer sun, on the white sand, listening to the waves crash tomorrow morning.
Today is July 1st. That means in exactly three months it is October 1st! Yay! There are still things that need to get done, phone calls to be made, meetings to go to and decisions to make, but all will get done. For now though, we will all enjoy our family vacation at the beach.
We are less than two hours from our destination! The trip has gone well ever since the one hang up with the accident. I am sure we will all sleep well tonight - those of us who have been up the whole time at least! The kiddos will possibly have trouble sleeping, but I doubt it. I cannot wait to wake up tomorrow morning and be at the beach.
I am in my total element when I am there! I cannot wait to soak up every second and take the opportunity of the beauty I will be around to capture it on film - actually, it's not film anymore, but you know what I mean. ;)
