A Drive part 1

On Thursday morning Jones and I had the thought that it would be fun to go and visit his sister, MelancholySmile in AZ, and so we did. :) 
It helped that we had just gotten our tax return, making our crazy idea a possibility.
It took a little working out but Saturday after Jones got off work we hit the road.

We were prepared for a slow easy going trip, playing everything by ear, and rolling with the punches.
We listened to books on tape and stopped at plenty of Mcdonald's to hijack internet and let the kids run around. By 10:30 pm we had made it to route 66 and decided to stay the night somewhere and start fresh in the morning. We got a comfy hotel cause there was no point in stopping if we couldn't sleep comfortably.

The kids were so tired they didn't even wake up when we brought them to the room. 
The next morning we woke up, showered and headed down for breakfast refreshed, excited and happy, except for Alfred who was just hungry.

Good thing there was a lot of food!
I made us a cinnamon waffle with strawberries and whipped cream, grabbed some sausage, eggs and cranapple juice.
Alfred was pretty happy with that. Eggs are his favorite.

The only seats available were at the bar tables and Alfred and I couldn't sit there so Tober and C got to be big kids at the adult table.

Jones, who is normally a crabby traveler {love ya babe but it's true :)}was pretty awesome. We joked and laughed and kept on the same page the whole way making the trip so pleasant.
First leg of the journey full success!!

Next, the Oscar Party...
