Northbound and down, loaded up and truckin'

We're gonna do what they say can't be done.

We gotta long way to go, and a short time to get there

I'm northbound, just watch ol' Coco run.


You can go ahead and thank me now for getting the "Smokey and the Bandit" theme song stuck in your head all day.

You're welcome.

OK, Starnes family, are y'all ready for some of this?:














Tomorrow morning, 5:00 am, Coco and kids will be heading to Kansas City to kick a little dirt. I hope everyone is prepared and well sedated. Or at least have your prescription filled.

This evening, while packing, I decided to really lay my Texas accent on super thick while visiting the Midwest (Kansas is the Midwest, right? Go, Tech! Money well spent, dad.)

This used to get me free cocktails while visiting the likes of NYC or South Beach. I'm not sure what will happen when I let the accent rip while pushing two kids in a jogging stroller, but it will be fun and sure to embarrass!

Bram is really looking forward to his "adventure" to PA-Kansas City.

And so am I!!

Those marker pictures are priceless! I'm sure they'll love 'em when you drag them out to show to their high school friends later...

I'm wishing Blake had a blog of his own so that he could give his perspective!

Y'all are going to have the best time ever! I remember when my kids were little, my pediatrician used to say, "Give them some Benadryl so they can relax and you can drive safely!" Is that wrong!? =)

Momma to the A's said...

You are a brave woman to drive that far with 2 kids! Well, I think you are brave! I would NEVER attempt that! I know you guys will have so much fun though! I can't wait to hear all about it, from start to finish! Have a very safe trip!
