KY for Thanksgiving

We arrived in my hometown of Glasgow, KY in record time for our family of 8.

It only took us 18 1/2 straight hours. Rick drove the whole way.

The drive was pretty normal, but eventful all at the same time.

The hardest part was getting out of town.

We grabbed some food to go at Chick-fil-a before we left. Isaiah felt the need to tell the woman walking in front of us to the bathroom that she has a big booty. Truly a proud moment for me(sarcasm).

Then, a quick stop at Wal-mart for some Redbox movies and a few last minute items.

We started heading out of town at 1:00 PM Mountain Time.

The trip started with much drama in our truck. Problems with our DVD player caused frustrations to run high. Finally, it was resolved.

There was some usual sibling fighting throughout the drive. I always say that we have more drama than a Broadway musical!!

We arrived at 8:30 AM Central time.

Rick headed straight to bed.

The kids were very excited to find bathrobes and Zhu Zhu Pets awaiting each of them on their beds at Grammy's house.

The rest of the day was spent relaxing. We visited Grandma in the evening.

Isaiah is having breathing issues. Thankfully, I brought his nebulizer. Hopefully it won't last long. I hate going to the doctor when we are out-of-town.

We are looking forward to the slow pace that life is here. We are looking forward to visiting with family and friends.

Our lives over the last 2 months have a been quite a whirlwind. This really is just what we need in our lives right now.


  1. Can't wait to see you all! We'll be in Glasgow on Tues evening. I'll try to call sometime this weekend to confirm our plans. Love you!!!


  2. ((((((((LAURA))))))))

    praying that you and the fam have a refreshing time at Grammy's :)

    I am also praying that Isaiah's breathing will quickly return to normal
