What a day! We left the suburbs of Atlanta a few minutes after 10am on Saturday for what is normally an easy 8 hour drive to Tampa...but not this day. This day we were met with this:
Finally we got to Sunny Florida and we had to stop to let the kids let off some steam. Katie and Madalyn raced around:
Katie and Michael did the Tango (which is what everyone does at rest stops, right?):
After 10 hours...we finally arrived...only to be confronted with a wee bit o'drama. The car started making these...ummm...lurches...(I don't speak car)...to be followed by the check engine light coming on.
Plan for today? We found a dealership just a mile from the hotel...and we plan to drop off the car on our way to the port... and they will hopefully fix it while we are gone...and hopefully we will not come home to a bill that is too outrageous...and hopefully it will allow me to have the dream that I can go on a cruise every time the car goes into the shop.
