Stilettos and Diapers: The road trip in pictures.

The road trip in pictures.

Get ready for it...the amount of pictures in this post is disgusting.
Don't say I didn't warn you!

Day 1 - The stripping begins
Hubs irritated already
Somehow I missed the Arizona sign.
Day 2 - Grand Canyon!
They warned us it was ZERO visibility when we went in, but we went anyway.
The white behind the boys is not a wall, but glass and tons of snow!
Then for about 5 minutes, it cleared so we could see this!
The snow was just like Dippin Dots. Promise. It pelted you in the face, and you could hold 1 snowflake for a bit without it melting.
Then on to New Mexico
Coop slept a lot. {Thank GOD}
Pretty sure this was New Mexico, too.
We got on Route 66 for a second when we saw the signs. Then I was bummed that it basically went the entire length of I-40. Pssh. Everyones been there.
Next up: TEXAS
It was snowing like a banchie there!
Who doesn't like a little road soda?
Oklahoma!
I made the hubs get off the Checotah exit.
It took us about 2.5 minutes to see the entire town.Arkansas
Was expecting to see Bill Clinton, but no such luck.
Downtown Fort Smith was adorable, though.
Tennessee was my favorite!
Probably because I had my first bloggy meet-up with Rachel!
This happens to be on my 101 in 1001 list, so I am so happy to cross it off! Not to mention, happy that is was with such a sweet chica!
Forgive the "I've been in the car for 14 hours" hair.
We stayed at the Opryland Hotel.
And it was incredible.
Finally into Virginia!
I wish we had more time to stop and sight see, but we still had an awesome time.
Now we are living at the hotel, motel, Residence Inn.
Kindof awesome, and kindof NOT.

More on that another time...

  7. Obsessive picture taking is definitely the best way to cope with giant car rides.

    And the Opryland looks amazing. I make have to make someone take a trip with me just so I can go stay there.

  16. Well I have to say...you made road trippin look fun!! But I am glad we don't have to do that any time soon. Addie would NOT have been as good as Coop :-) Oh...and the road soda thing made me laugh out loud. Not sure if your road sodas are actually soda...because I know ours aren't. Ahh...the days before kiddies :-) HA!
