plenty of traveling

"summer" has finally rolled around,
which means it's move-time..
we will be in Chicago for the summer for Ty's job
Tyson left Thursday with one car and all the necessities to live off of for the summer
Friday, me & Lex headed down to Utah,
-on a shuttle bus-
to fly out to Memphis to visit my family.
but we actually flew into Little Rock, AR because I found amazing tickets
(southwest, me & lex both for $239.. $91 a piece)
what?! that's like unheard of these days!
so yes, b/c of that we added extra drives into that..
4 hr'ish to SLC and another 2'ish to MEM
but sure beats paying over $1,000

I dreaded riding the shuttle,
but lexi ended up doing just fine..
we just had a few too many stops to get down there!

packing for a 3'ish week trip to memphis and for an entire summer
is a hard task my friends!
i don't pack lightly

//FRIDAY


//SATURDAY
// airplane ride no.1 = 1hr20min
// layover = 4 1/2 hr
// airplane ride no.2 = 3hr
// car ride to MEM w/lex getting sick in her car seat near midnight = 2 1/2 hrs

needless to say,
(at 1:00am)
we were ready for a nice bed when we got to my parents!
b/c who doesn't sticker their feet?




 

we had a lot of down time... and one broken and 3 working walkways to play with!

  11. I've heard travel is much easier if you prepare.
    And you look like one prepared mama.
    A master even.
