Travel update: slightly ahead of the plan

Date August 7, 2007

Julie got the kids up at 5:30 AM yesterday morning in McKinney (just north of Dallas) with a goal of reaching Springfield, Missouri or beyond by the end of the day.

In reality, she got a good ways beyond Springfield to Rolla, MO. Google says that’s just over an 8-hour drive. And Google doesn’t factor in travelling with three kids!

They got to the hotel in time to eat dinner AND get in a swim in the pool before heading back to the room for the night.

Benton did not nap all day, whereas Carson did and Alana did (twice!).

Today, it’s on to St. Louis in the morning and then hitting Grant’s Farm in the afternoon.
