The Trip Home

Our original plans were to leave Mississippi on Thursday and stop back by my cousins in Alabama and spend some more time with them. Then our plans changed because I woke up Wednesday morning sick with strep. :( After Bryan and I talked we decided to try and truck it home all in one day. We had never traveled so far with all the kids and wondered if it would wear them out. We planned to make a couple of long stops on the way. Our first stop was at a McDonald's in Mobile for lunch. We spent about an hour or so there and then the kids took a nap. We would be going through Birmingham about supper time so we thought that would be another good stop. For supper we stopped at Oak Mountain State Park and had a picnic. Not only was it a nice picnic but the kids got to ride their bikes on the BMX coarse there too. They loved it! We did make it home around 10 that night and the trip home was very nice (it took us about 10 hours to get home).

Elijah was having so much fun!
Elijah would even turn around and do the coarse backwards! LOL!!
Isaac thought this was so cool!
YAY for Big brother! He did so well on this coarse!
We realized Sarah's handle bars needed to be tightened up some! :(
Timothy had to try it too! Daddy is such a great helper!
Trying it all by himself!
Joanna made her own obstacle coarse! :)
Almost home and hubby had to stop and clean the window!
Timothy was so tired! See that chocolate in the corner of his mouth? We had to have a snack. :) All the kids did really well on the long trip home!
