Leaving Colorado and first stop in Kansas City
Kids aren’t allowed to ask “r we there yet?” Unless we’ve stopped lmao
Note to self this state is full of windmills #farmsofthem
We started the trip, a couple hrs in with jilli having an earache. I wouldn’t have expected any thing else
This morning we woke up refreshed and ready for the day and we are headed to see the arch in St. Louis, it’s going to be a blast. Besides Jesse spilling coffee on his white shirt all was pretty smooth getting ready. He thinks that the coffee he spilt won’t stain and I’m saying, well you know, it totally will, so I tried to get him to bet 100$ On it, welll he won’t make the bet haha 😛
Just made it to Missouri and we’re settling into the holiday inn. When we saw the arch as we drove into the city tanner said “look it’s the city rainbow” lol pretty cool
This afternoon we visited the park where the arch is at and what a huge sight to see.
So we all bet on how long it would take to get to the top and Jesse bet 2 min, me 5, jilli 3 and rhy 4
Rhy won it takes 4 min to get to the top!
So tomorrow we go to the top.
We have been trying to fit ice cream into the plan for the day and it’s been tough and also nowhere we’re at had anything close. Finally we mapped a shell station 4 blocks away from our very nice hotel (holiday inn) so we head there and in m e we at a almost died it was not a place we should have been at all. I’m sure you can picture this for yourself I don’t even need to describe our experience! I can tell you it won’t happen again, we’ll be researching where we walk next time, the question is “was the ice cream worth it?” YES IT WAS I think
Bye Missouri off to Knoxville, we have a long ride ahead as we pass through, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky and will arrive late in Knoxville.
Next day off to Fayetteville NC to see our favorite feldhauser family
Kids are doing very good and enjoying this road trip, but we’re most excited for a week at the beach
