Yay for hardly any traffic.
Love me some Cracker Barrel.
Lilian did amazingly well! We knew she typically travels well, but we were really impressed with how well she did. Cracker Barrel is normally a win-win with my family. There is enough on the menu for all of us to get something that sounds good.

You did great with Atlanta; we always left around 3 a.m. from Atlanta just to miss the traffic.

I sent you a PM...I started my TR if you want to join.
Thanks Kathy. Oh I tune my Dad out as needed. We were thrilled with our luck through Atlanta. I got it and replied back.

Ashton and Dayne have always enjoyed their breakfast anytime of the day....
She loves collecting things! We love stopping at Cracker Barrel. My Dad situation was hardly the worse thing that has ever happened but we just got annoyed because he could not let it go enough to enjoy his vacation.

I love the picture of Lilian sleeping is hilarious! It's funny how kids can sleep anyway and anywhere! I would have a wicked neck ache if I had slept like that!

Can't wait for more!
No kidding--I could not imagine sleeping like that. She only slept for about 45 minutes, but it would still have given a horrible ache.

I am thoroughly enjoying your trip report! I am subscribing so I can keep up with the latest entries.

Can you adopt me? I'm older than you, but what the heck! Treat bags! I want the treat bags!

About the rest stop and the acorn collection, my kids did the same thing! Acorns, rocks, fall leaves; they would often leave the goody bag and high tech entertainment stuff to check out nature. You'd think they never played outside in their life!

Keep it coming!

Hey Lindsay! I have not gotten very far on my TR yet so you're fine!! I have so much going on right now that this it is going to be slow paced right now.

My Dad is good for some laughs some of the time.

You are so brave. I could not do the amount of driving you are. My kids have always been pretty good with car rides but I just cant imagine we would all come out alive after we had all been in the car for a couple of days.

Seriously though, I am very impressed with the treat bags. How awesome of a mom are you!

Can't wait to continue reading along!

I now have a craving for some Cracker Barrel. Thanks, Steph!

My sister sounds a lot like your dad. She has some issues with our SIL and she tends to go on and on about it. It gets really old and I wish she would just shut up about it sometimes so I completely understand where you're coming from!

I like all the pictures you took of the different skylines. I'm used to two skylines: NYC and Philly since I live close to both. I have no idea what some other cities look like lol.

Almost to Disney!

I'm not sure how to comment on this response. Getting to Disney is part of our trip, so I've included it.

I love your pictures. Lilian looks so excited each time she reaches into her treat bags. Very cute!

I got Lilian's card today. So cute!

Looking forward to reading more..
Thanks Sophia. I'm glad the card made it to you.

to my TR. I'm glad to have you say hello. We love Cracker Barrel when we travel and look for them during road trips. We have driven to Colorado, North Carolina three times and countless trips to Illinois and Indiana. I'm glad you have figured out a way to travel that works well for you and your family.
