Thankful Thursday...(Day two of our journey)

i am thankful for my beautiful wife and all that she is to me (my beloved husband)

I am thankful for safety and the Lords hand on our journey.

After a good night sleep I woke up early( around 6ish) and ready to start our day. I slowly started waking the rest of crew so that we could start moving and getting on the road. Everyone sluggishly started moving and gathering our things so we could eat breakfast.

After breakfast we went to fuel up to head towards Georgia.. Refreshed and ready we get on the road. Things were going great till I decided to take a sip of the energy drink called Munster:

I had never tried this stuff nor did I know what this stuff would do to me. I had to concentrate on driving because it instantly put my head in fog. Where I felt very strange and my body was reacting to this nasty stuff. Finally after about an hour or two I could not take it anymore and I had to stop because it also affected my stomach. I learned something about this stuff. My children will never drink this stuff again. It is dangerous stuff!!

We made it to Georgia-

After a break, and lunch at subways-

thanks to my wonderful friend Marsha at Other Such Happenings who gave us coupons for subway which we stopped in Georgia. It was a great lunch and time to getting my body ready for the next part of our trip.

This is a water tower we passed - isn't it cool??

We trucking along just fine until we came upon this in South Carolina close to Greenville.

It took us about an hour to get through this traffic. We think it was because of an accident but we did not really see anything. We just got pass this certain spot, and the traffic opened up.

It did not take us long after this point to hit North Carolina

After a while everyone needed a break so we stopped at the North Carolina welcome center/rest center.

The children spotted a field and started running and kicking a soccer ball around. Even the dog went crazy!

Noah kicked his shoes off and went crazy!

We stayed there for about 3o minutes letting the kids run around and get their energy out, not to mention it helped wake us all up.

After about another 4 hours we finally made it to my sisters about 10:30pm. It was a long day, but the Lord was gracious and merciful.

  3. I'm so glad you made it there safely. I've heard lots of negative things about those energy drinks. I'll never try one. I don't blame you for not wanting the children too either. Have a blessed visit. NC....that's my neck of the woods!
