Forty something days on the road with a bunch of kids and “The old lady” :)
We have been on many summer road trips over the years. Most of them
blend together and it’s hard to remember what year we did what and saw whom.
This year for me was life changing; kind of like taking a hit of acid. Once you commit and open your mind to it all, you come out thinking a different way. The cast of characters this year consisted of the twins, (Tripp and Milo), My nephew Atticus, myself, and my “old lady,” Raphye.
We knew we were gonna head to Florida to visit my mom. The rest of it was kind of up in the air. We left all the kid’s electronic devices at the house and zig zagged around the entire country.
I could write a book about all of our experiences; the people we met, the people we already knew and had not seen in a long time, and the thinking. I thought a lot over the forty something days.
It is hard for me to articulate my feelings but I just know that I want to spend as much of my time from now on seeing the people I love and taking advantage of my time with my kids before they are all grown up.
Here are a bunch of images from our journey.
