Alongside the road, we spotted armadillo, donkeys, white cows, vultures and hillbillies (most of which were in Alabama).
No matter how many toys you have to distract her, a 9 month old doesn't care.
But a 2 yr old will be content with scotch tape and a cheerios box.
I had forgotten how much I missed my favorite drink from college - Captain and Coke. It was even more delicious when I could enjoy it while overlooking the ocean and sitting quietly (sans kids) with Nick.
Our kids were spoiled with private bedrooms while their parents roughed it on a pullout couch.
I am not a fan of oysters.
You can not finish a 1000 piece puzzle in one night (a bet Nick lost) or even in one week.
It didn't rain a drop all week.
Max really loves go carts - as do I.
It wouldn't have been a vacation without me getting burned (happened on the last day) and a celebrity dying (R.I.P. Macho Man).
And last but not least, in the eleventh hour of in-car travel with two kids, this was the best parenting idea I had.
On Saturday, we took a long hike through the Lion's Den Gorge - a plot of undeveloped land along the lake. When we came up on the water, it was one of the only times I've seen Max sit still. It was a beautiful day with our little family.
Isn't this cute?
Max took a snooze while we finished the hike.
Unfortunately, Max was sleeping when we came to this creek. We'll have to go back for him to throw hundreds of rocks in.
A little beach to play on when the weather warms up.
