Nashville, TN & Montgomery, AL

We have arrived in Florida!! We are staying in Rosemary Beach - a little town in the panhandle.  The house is lovely and the area is beautiful. My parents are staying with us so tonight we were able to go to dinner sans kiddos. Our first night without the kiddos since Kunming!!

I am not going to lie, the drive was a little crazy.  Two 9-10 hours/days of driving will do anyone in.  After the first day I had a stiff neck from turning around so much and giving the kiddos food.  Seriously, I was really uncomfortable.  We stopped in Nashville for the night and that rejuvenated me a bit.  The hotel was awesome and the girls loved the fountains and the ice cream!!

(what type of parents are we that we made her wait this long?!)

The second day of driving I tried to turn around less but the neck stiffness hit an all time high after hour 6.  We stopped in Montgomery, AL for lunch and to let the girls run around.

Hi sweet friend. Please forgive me for not emailing or commenting sooner. Of course I've been here following. I spoke with my mom about Emma this weekend and want you to know we are praying. Hope this vacay is just what you need to relax and unwind.

I'm betting you may come pretty stinkin' close to where I am on your way back through. Maybe not. But if you do, I'd sure love to hug your neck.

Much love~
Kam

PS We will be DTC this week! Eeeek!!!!!!

Glad you enjoyed Nashville! It is one of our favorite cities! ;)

I can totally relate to the stiff neck from turning around. Oh my. Enjoy the beach--dreaming of a fall trip there myself!
