Moving Recaps: 10 hr drive

Okay back on to the moving recaps.
Last week I talked about our last week in Missouri.

We left off with the hubby and I staying in southern Illinois with my in-laws.  They were planning on making the long trip with us.  My mother-in-law had been on a trip with her church for the past week up in northeast and had just spent 24 hours on a bus back to Illinois.  Since she really wanted to go with us and we had an extra day to spare, we decided to spend the whole next day there so she would have some time to sleep and relax before heading back out on the road.  It also allowed us to spend some time with the hubby's friends and family.

Then early Monday morning we took off.  That day's drive was about 10 hours to Charlotte, North Carolina where my parents live.

This is what our journey looked like.  Pretty much we spent a majority of the time driving through Tennessee.

Following behind the truck and going a nice slow speed.

Switching drivers to give everyone a break once in a while.

Playing around to keep ourselves occupied.

Getting excited about all of the Chick-fil-A signs we saw along the way.
And of course stopping there for lunch!

Purposely staying stopped at a green light to get this picture of "Pickel Partners"

Heading into the hills of North Carolina.

And enjoying the beautiful view of our new state.

Overall it wasn't too bad of a drive, but we were glad we decided to break it up like we did.  We got into my parents around dinner time and then crashed early.  After all, we did have a very busy next day to look forward to.

Tomorrow I will finally share pictures of the new place!
