Finally, I'm able to get this blog done! A few days late, but being at the mercy of hotel internet what can a girl do?
Friday (8/14) marked the first day of our cross country road trip. We did just about 8 hours of driving from the Jersey Shore to Macedonia, Ohio. We tried to take my daughter to a mall to burn some energy. Course, typical me, found the deserted closed mall in a not so great area. So, it was dinner and walking around a little strip mall instead. The La Quinta we stayed at was quaint and nice.
We were up at the crack of dawn, even before the Bob Evans opened!, for the next piece of the trip. Luckily, this was just a short 4 hour trip to Auburn Hills, Michigan - just outside of Detroit. We attended a rehearsal luncheon for my cousin's wedding (why we took this route), then we tried to go to the river area. There was some festival going on and way too crowded for a toddler in no stroller. Then to another mall! We did a lot of those this weekend.
Least I got a few great photos from the car. The hubby is not big on stopping in the emergency lane for me to hop out for a quick photo shoot. Hmmm.... wonder why :) Therefore all the photos in this blog were taken from the passenger seat while we were driving.
The sunrise over the Ohio/Michigan border on Saturday morning was just AMAZING! Breathtaking! I love the sky and the amazing things to be seen with each passing second.
Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved watching the military convoys on the highways. Its always been a moving thing to watch even after seeing one numerous times. Now being a military wife and adult, I still love watching them.
