cross country move

Well, this post might be all over the place and may need a second post later if i find more pics. Dave graduated and both parental sets came out to help and celebrate! How awesome is that. We did some fun things and then, a lot lot of hard work things. Lots of packing, LOTS of moving, lots of babysitting Alta. Oh and it was like 90 and humid and we had no A/C in our apt. Their help was beyond appreciated.

We took everybody to see the lovely Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and to lunch at Chavellas. Cutest place, bestest food.

Our empty apt. I thought it would look big when it was empty but it didn’t.

Well, I guess these are out of order. Here’s Nashville, which was so great. I want to go there again

And the grass at Chick Fil-A before we had a delicious dinner at something. One of those chains (not Chick-Fil-A because they are closed on sundays. which was sad because we wanted the play place)

Lunch in Little Rock

Wished we could have hit all the Route 66 sites. A sleeping baby in the car means you just have to keep going a lot of times.

Lunch in Amarillo

Santa Fe – another favorite favorite place – i had breakfast tacos, dave had a breakfast burrito, alta was feeling tired and sick of the road trip life

Verdict: Super fun road trip, really exhausting with a one-year old who can’t stand and wants to crawl everywhere, glad we did it, not sure if we could do it again. see you again next June, UHaul.
