Today is the day we arrive at Mom’s in Indiana!!
We woke up in Missouri early and ready for our 6 hour drive. By far the shortest leg of our trip. We were on the road by 8:00 ready to end the tireless driving as quickly as possible.
We saw St Louis from the freeway. We drove right by the famous arch, and the Busch stadium.
I wanted to stop at every odd sight on the way. Things we missed:
World’s Largest Candy Store
World’s Largest Rocking Chair
Vacuum Cleaner Museum
Jesse James Wax Museum
(Jason assures me this is about the 1800s bank robber, not the present-day motorcycle mechanic. I googled it to be sure. Lol.)
An alarming number of adult video stores
We couldn’t stop because there was a storm headed to Heritage Lake at 5:00pm. We lost another hour, reaching our new EST time zone. We finally arrived at 3:45. Yay!
We immediately started unloading the U-Haul. 15 minutes into it we were halfway through and the storm arrived early. Torrential rains and wind came so suddenly, complete with thunder and lightening. We closed it all up as fast as we could, getting soaked in the process. We dried off and sat down. Just as quickly as it arrived, the storm passed. Back to work.
My mom and stepdad are nice enough to let us stay with them until we find our own place. Jarry got home just in time to help us unload and get our room together.
We are thankful for our own bed to sleep in and we made it across the country without a hitch. Our dog, Penny Lane, will not leave Jason’s side. She is so happy!
Thanks for following our journey. Cheers!!
