If there is one way to really get to know a person, it is being stuck in a car with them for hours on end. Some of my favorite memories are from road trips I have been on. Our family LOVES road trips, and it's a good thing because that is what we do for a living! We have criss-crossed the country driving parts of Historic Route 66, the entire length of I-35 from Laredo to North Dakota, through the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee and Kentucky and just in the first two months of 2015 we have driven the entire expanse of I-10! So you can bet that we have seen some fun, interesting and very weird stuff along the way. On our most recent trip from San Antonio to Los Angeles we hadn't even made it 2 hours out of town when we saw a cow wandering around ON the highway and then a few miles down the road a large grass fire! We called 911 to report the fire and when the operator answered they asked, “Are you calling about the cow or the fire?” What a question! We are still laughing about that one!
We always try to make every trip an adventure. We have seen where George Washington lived, been to a working soybean farm, toured factories, nearly run out of gas, eaten at some “interesting” places, and seen everything from the flat nothingness of the central plains to the majestic beauty of the mountains that reach to the sky. Sometimes we plan our adventures and sometimes they just happen, either way I am honored that God has called us to this crazy life and grateful that we get to do it as a family!
