Remember I said we cut a trip short. Where did we go? Well baby boy and his bride are off on an adventure and we helped out with getting them there.
Monday evening - First you have dad load up everything you have stored in Nac - then you send dad home to J'ville to re-pack it while you go to film (he worked on an internet video series all summer - can be found at maddisonatkins.com if you are interested). DIL was still finishing up work in Kilgore.
ask the 'expert' for help (middle son - trust me, this kid can pack it in!)
figuring out the puzzle
Every job needs a supervisor. (It's August, it's Texas, time to drag out the fan!)
Tuesday morning - more re-arranging to accommodate the stuff that DIL had in the car the day before.
All loaded! I should have taken a picture of the car too - trust me, it was packed as tight as the U-haul.
When you go through Oklahoma you have to stop at the 'World's largest McDonalds'
Wednesday morning. Lost track of how many 'pit stops' we made along the way but here is a tip for ya - if you are traveling through the night and will be in Iowa after dark, fill the gas tank before you cross the state line.
Made it to Minnesota - now what?
Parked on the corner waiting for a spot to open up in front of the apartment so we can unload the U-haul. Oh - we are now in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 24 hours after leaving Texas and yes, we are tired!
The new place
Don't you love those wood floors?
They are in the bedroom too!
Jason and Ashley have moved to Minnesota. Ashley is the stage manager intern at The Gutherie for this year. When she finishes the internship she will receive her BFA in stage management from SFA.
We had planned to stay several days in Minneapolis but since our house was scheduled to close on the 18th (you already know that story) we cut our stay to one day. I'll show you how we spent our day in the next post!
