We left Alabama and got a late start again. 2nd day in a row I’ve woken up with hives in the middle of the night. Benadryl seems to knock me out, leaving me groggy. Groggy+driving doesn’t mix!
The girls and I turned up the music and sang at the top of our lungs, enjoying the scenery as we went! Everything was peaceful and calm…no screaming baby, no fighting kids…perfect! After a few hours of driving, I decided to surprise my husband. It’s really the best thing a woman can do for a man…well, practically! I made a detour to Bass Pro Shop! My daughters were laughing when they turned around and saw him grinning as we pulled into the parking lot! We let the dogs out for a potty break and then went inside to grab a bite to eat! We snapped a few pictures of the girls with the fish and headed back on the road again.
We were driving for another hour or so before our first mishap. I was leading the way and I look up and see a large object heading right to our front window. With nowhere to go, I just knew it was going to hit. Right before impact, a gust of wind took the object into the median! All I can say is our guardian angels were watching out for us! My husband called to make sure we were all ok. These are the things that scare me to death during long trips! Anything can happen!
We arrived in Shreveport, La after dark and were ready for bed. It was a long day and I am just thankful we arrived in one piece!
Day 2 complete—–399 miles down….still too many left to count!
