Phew! What a day!
We’re tucked into our hotel after a looooong day of driving. Much longer than I anticipated. We hit a huge traffic jam just outside New Orleans because of – what appeared to be – an outdoor church service for bikers? I couldn’t get a read on what was going on other than motorcycles everywhere!
We had beautiful weather all the way through LA and into Mississippi.
And into Alabama…
Then, late afternoon we got stuck in a massive thunderstorm. It slowed our progress, plus a couple more stops and road construction in Tennessee… I thought we would’ve been here an hour sooner. Ah, well! The nature of road travel!
This is actually Emmett’s very first ever stay in a hotel! He was confused at first, but once he sniffed the room top to bottom, he happily chewed his Busy Buddy in bed. Now, he’s tucked into bed with his very own Rupert (#3 on his Bucket List! There will be a post to explain Rupert after the road trip.) Sorry for the poor photo quality. Didn’t want to turn on an extra light and wake him!
We’re getting up early to tackle the next leg of our roadtrip, so off to bed for me. I may not get to write a full post every day this week, but I’ll try! If not, I’m posting sporadic pics to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with the #EmsBucketList hashtag.
Hope you all have a great start to your week!
