This little road trip has made it clear that acquiring an SUV needs to be a priority in 2019. My VW Beetle cannot be the family car. This is a very tight fit.
You should have seen us yesterday when Bismarck was in the back too! 🤣
Oh and the trunk is completely full, like we barely got it closed.
Apparently were stopping for photos at every rest stop between St. Louis and Bloomington. 🤣❤️
And I’m just a tiny bit homesick. I have insomnia, and I miss my bed. We brought our own comforter and pillows, which helps a lot, but it’s still not the same.
The Bordeaux here is really good though. Good wine. Good company. Today should be a lot of fun. I just wish I could get some sleep.
This bridge always brings up a very specific memory for me. When traveling on 70 East, you cross this bridge to get into Boone County. Back in 2002, I spent the better part of three days stuck in a moving truck with G and our mini dachshund puppy on our move from Los Angeles to Columbia, MO. I remember crying when I saw this bridge because I knew we were almost home. I knew our good friends were impatiently awaiting our arrival, and that a new chapter of my life was about to begin. I get all the feels whenever I cross this bridge.
In Sweet Springs, MO. I’m a bit tipsy. No worries…D is driving.
We’re gonna hit it hard this weekend.
I couldn’t pass through Columbia with my boo and not stop here. Oh the memories!
Our dream of playing the gas station slots we found here five years ago has finally come true.
I won a dollar. Yessssssss.
