June 29, 2023-All in One (Disney, Beach Camp, Seaside, and Dennie Family Trip)

As Robby and I usually do when we plan to leave the next morning, we were up early. He was up earlier than I was, and even woke up in the middle of the night to start a load of towels. There were dishes, laundry, more laundry, and loading a few last minute things in the camper. 

I woke up Keaton and Whitman at 9. Keaton just asked me why I had woken her up so early, but within 45 minutes we were driving down the road. Robby and I had to tell the other sleeping kids bye-I did take Bentley with me so I was probably better received than he was. She is their favorite.

Getting to Memphis took a little bit, and that was probably the worst traffic that we did have all day long. After that, there was one detour that we had to take because of the traffic, but I think that we did pretty well. 

We stopped at both Buccee's while on the way, but we did only get out at the first one. Keaton got a coke and some chocolate candy, while Whitman just opted for a slushies. Robby also bought a drink along with candied pecans for us to share. While we were at the check out, I grabbed a praline pecan thing for me and one for Robby.

Bentley did get sick on the way here. I discovered it on the hard floor so that was good and easy to clean. She did fine though on the route except for her refusal to go to the bathroom at one of our stops. I stood outside forever in the heat waiting on her. Eventually, I told her tough-she potties less at home than on trips so she didn't seemed to concerned with missing her potty stop. 

There was some gas stops, but nothing really too exciting on the trip down which was wonderful. I did pick out a good audiobook that we both listened to on the drive (Thunder Dog). We have tried to listen to books before, but it is hard to find one that is a winner for both of us. I am currently listening to a book about a lady from Paris who is a dress designer. The book is 15 hours long, and I was pretty sure that Robby didn't want to listen with me for that one.

We had planned to get to Valdosta tonight, but it was getting late, and Robby had some work to do so we stopped about 45 minutes earlier than planned in Tifton, Georgia. That means that we have 4 hours to drive tomorrow, but that is certainly doable since I bet that we will get an early start.

Reagan and Campbell did get out to go to Hobby Lobby today, and even did a bit of window shopping at the Promanade. Reagan did come home and buy a pair of jean shorts when she came home. She found a better deal on line
