Heather and Ailee joined us for the first "leg" of the trip ... we eventually met Tom and Kathy in St. Louis and ate at the Cracker Barrel ... my favorite because it's a great place to eat, but you get to SHOP too! Kudos to you, Cracker Barrel!
Although the "honeymoon" period of these toddlers lasted for awhile, eventually the close proximity made them a little frustrated and territorial ... but by then it was time for a nap!
They slept for nearly 2 hours of the 4 hour trip to St. Louis ... and since I was in the back with them and it was all of the sudden very quiet ... I decided to get some zzzzz's myself.
This is one of the coolest parts of the 8-hour trip to Marion, Indiana. It's somewhere between St. Louis and Marion ... but after awhile things start blending together, so we can't remember for sure. It is such an awesome part of our trip ... everytime we go by it we pray that our fellow travelers who don't know that Lord will be stirred by it ... or by anything ... and will seek Him, and for those that do know Him, we pray that this would be a visual reminder to spread the GOOD NEWS!
