Well, we had our last family get-together (once again and Steve and Lisa's) and Scott's brother Dave and his family came to the house to say a little farewell!! We were so glad that we got to see them. Dave and Emily were the first of the family I got to meet (while Scott and I were dating) and they always made me feel so welcomed! We will miss them.
Scott did a great job driving this monster cross country. He enjoyed it. I on the other hand was only ever a passenger there was no way I was gonna drive that beast with the other huge semi's on the road, strong wind gusts and road construction. Good job Scott!!
Wyoming...the first of the states that we drove through (besides Utah). We were both expecting a lot more green, but it was mostly desert.
Have any of you ever seen Neverending Story? Does this could bring back any memories at all? It was a HUGE momma storm that we had to drive right into! It was a little scary, especially for my parents. They were driving Scott's car and whoops, we forgot to get the windshield wiper fixed (on the drivers side) so my poor dad had to lean way over to be able to see. I was saying a quiet prayer for them during that chaos! Oh, I think that this was in Nebraska
We decided to take a little detour while we were in Misouri and go to Liberty Jail. What Scott and I didn't know is that it was about an hour long tour ( we wanted to get back on the road ASAP-dont ask me why). The problem with the tour was all of us were exhausted. So, as soon as the lights went out, I felt myself slipping into a deep slumber. I looked over at Scott, my dad and mom and all had their heads down. I felt bad for the guide, so I did my best. It was still a really neat experience.
It is funny...in Utah, there are LDS churches EVERYWHERE. Totally different story in the southern states. I believe this was...Illinois. I thought is was an LDS church at first.
I think I skipped pictures of Tennesee and Georgia. As soon as we crossed into Florida, there was a huge rainstorm, and there has been one at least once everyday since we have been here. I love the rain and thunder. This is in Tampa. There are some pretty sweet bridges to cross. They are pretty much right on the water. And NO, we haven't seen any alligators yet. Every freshwater pond we drive past, I try and see some.
Our little lizard friend that Scott found in our house on our broom. No, we didn't kill it. We captured it then released it to its natural home.
Treasure Island Beach (I think). There are so many out here, but we decided to go and relax for a couple of hours. It didn't rain on us, but it was overcast. Probably a good thing cause we got a little sun with the clouds.
Our go-to-meal when we don't have any food in the house. Waffles and yogurt. I love it! Scott likes them best with syrup. This was our Sunday meal today. Mmmm...
