On the way to Arkansas

On Friday we left for Arkansas around 4pm. Our plan was to get there about 8:30-9pm.
We had some bad timing though. First we got stuck in KC traffic, which seemed to take forever to get through. Once we got out of it it was about 6pm and we had to stop for dinner. We at at Harrisonville and once we got back in the car we were looking forward to a straight, no traffic trip.

Turns out a lot of people were head to the Ozarks. By the time we got on the highway the traffic was all backed up again. We got trough it and we were on our way. I thought the kids would nap, they didn't. Preston was upset and uncomfortable. We stopped somewhere to get the kids out and have a potty break, then hit the road again. By 9:45 ish we were about an hour away, but the kids needed out and Aaron needed a picker upper. We went to Wal Mart and got some candy, the kids loved it.

We arrived at some point and we were beat, but we told Taylynn we were going to have a party because she pooped in the potty that day. So we pulled out the ice cream and added a candle, she was pretty darn excited.

Here are a couple moments I captured.

Much more from the weekend to come.


  1. Hard at road, but thanks God arrived safe.

    Have a nice week.

  2. Aw, I like Both of their outfits in the walmart shots! Glad you guys had a good time in AR!!

  3. I have never made fried green tomatoes, but I have watched them being made several times. They are so good! We had a similar experience during our trip to my parents. It took us about an hour and a half longer this time than normal. Traveling with kids is no fun!
