Valentine's Day 2009

This year, romance was definitely in the air.

4:45 Sophia wakes up in a Holiday Inn in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Unfortunately for Romance, we were all with her.
6:15 We wake up for real and prepare to continue the drive begun the night before
9:00 After not having room service like the hotel promised, we begin driving
11:00 Still driving
1:00 Still driving and attempting conversation over the howling of the wind as it tries to push our overladen car over into Wyoming rangeland
3:00 Second gas and potty break of the day
5:00 Wonderful views of Nebraska farmland
8:00 Still driving, and fishing for snacks among the piles that surround Kathleen and Sophia
9:30 Finally in Omaha
9:45 Girls in bed after much screaming
10:00 Turn to each other, give each other a kiss, and wish each other Happy Valentine's Day

And who said that Romance dies when you get married and have children?

Hahaha. I remember that drive. It NEVER ENDS.

Hey lovebirds,

We know you're in the area somewhere. You can't hide from us forever.

hahaha That is great! Ah those lovely cross-country drives. I never thought I could have such a passionate hatred for a state until I drove through Kansas.
