Mini road trip

I finally found the USB cord. I have some pics to share but first I wanted to post about our road trip before I forget. We found a car that we liked a few days before our accident settlement check came in. The problem was that is was a 430 mile round trip to get the car. Our plan was originally to drive up with the kids on Tuesday afternoon and be back late at night.

Our plans were changed for us by several delays that were out of our control. My mom and aunt offered to watch the kids overnight for us so it ended up being just hubby and me. We drove up late Tuesday evening and got to our destination around 11:30 p.m. We stayed at a hotel and had a blast together. It was sooooo nice to spend time alone with hubby even if it was a very short trip. The next morning we had to be at the dealership by 9:00. We had about 30 minutes to eat breakfast and found this crazy neat little country restaurant. It was beyond delicious. The kind of delicious that makes you want to cry. :) It was so cute and country I had to snap a quick photo.

It was less than 24 hours away for us but it still felt so good. I am very thankful that we got to go on our little mini road trip together. Just the 2 of us. Words cannot express how fun it is when you are driving through the country late at night and the only vehicles on the road are 18 wheelers. We didn't even see anyone inside the gas stations we stopped at along the way.
