We made it safely to our stopping point today, despite hours of downpours, and even a few patches of snow showers.
A far cry from yesterday's weather when the kids were wearing shorts and I had to turn the air conditioner on in the evening.
It's now a little after 8 and the kids are trying to get to sleep while I hide in the corner with my computer.

I did a much better job of packing a small bag for our one night's stop than the last hotel fiasco, so it was a much simpler process to get checked-in, grab some dinner, and fit in a quick swim.
The swim primarily took place in the hot-tub, but I have no complaints about that.

I plan to try to get to sleep soon as well, if I can fool my body into thinking it's maybe 10:30 instead of 8:30. I'd like to get an early start tomorrow so I can possibly beat the afternoon rush hour in Detroit.

Missing my main squeeze tonight. Road trips aren't the same without you!

Good-night, West Virginia.

Nice update. Sure hope the weather and traffic are not a problem for you tomorrow. Fridays on the road are tough, so an early start sounds like a great idea.

Godspeed to you and the kiddos. And, tonight-sweet dreams!!!

Ah, good ol' West Virginia. I live right on the PA/WV border(the PA side), those roads can get crazy windy. Hope you guys have a safe trip. :)

Erin - praying for a wonderful restful time in MI to give you a break! I'm sad I didn't get a chance to swing by & see you on the way to/fro NC! But I'll probably still be there when you return! hahah (not funny at all actually :-/ ) Love you! Tell the kids Hi for me : )
