Moments from a Family Road Trip

Well, the laundry is done and our fridge has food again, but I'm still not back in the real-world zone. I think that's the sign of a good vacation....I unplugged so completely, that I can't find my way back yet.

Time flies so quickly, it seems the kid's birthdays grow closer together every year. I'm desperate to make it stop, to freeze them at each delicious age. That's why it's even more important for me to step away from all those little things demanding my time, and focus on the people who's time in my home is fleeting.

Last week, the three of us left computers, video games, and distractions behind, and loaded the car for our best friends in Nashville. We moseyed our way there, and spent nights in Memphis and Little Rock, with a lot of adventure in between.

I made a point to say, 'Sure!' as much as I could. That resulted in lots of fast food stops.

Showed the kids Central High School, where they were baffled by the absurd idea of segregation.

Can you have sister wives in Tennessee? I'd choose her.

That feeling when someone else loves your kids as much as you do.

  5. Hot mamas, right there.

    Aw, the sweetest family roadtrip. The only thing better than friends for life is when that gets passed on to the kids too!!

    Good to have you back & plugged back in, though. #selfishFreckles #you're50%ofmyblog&Instagramreadership

  11. Did you notice the irony of the "welcome to Texas - drive friendly - the Texas way" sign with a knocked over road cone? :D

  14. New to your blog and love it...Loved that you went through Arkansas and had something to do (I was born and raised in south Arkansas, but live in Canada now)...but my most favorite thing was the "sister wives" comment. It's so true isn't it...Love you blog and new follower!!!

  15. Just had to comment and say THANK YOU for sharing the Nashville love! My husband and I also met/married in Nashville, and we'd lived there for nearly a decade before moving away last year. Your photos were like an I Spy game of Nashville sights :) LOVE the pedestrian bridge and Parthenon shots!
