life lately...

Two of us are home from our road trip... and Cam is all settled in at school. The trip was filled with fun and sights and a whole lot of love and courage. I have stories to share, but for now, here is a little glimpse...
1. all packed up for another day on the road... thankful to have finished
before the rain came down in buckets.

2. is it really a road trip without a stop at cracker barrel? and you know me... if you bring this girl to cracker barrel, she'll need to have some candy sticks {at least a couple of clove!}

3. we finally crossed the mississippi river into iowa in le claire... the home of antique archaeology! being big fans of american pickers, we had to stop and roam through the store! 

4. corn, sunshine and blue skies for days...

5. ice cream can fix just about anything... even a disappointing detour 

6. we moved in him in, explored campus, and somehow said goodbye...

7. next stop? chicago! we loved our few days with friends, and had time to do some city exploring.

8. we drove through the great smoky mountains on the way home and
OH MY GOODNESS it was a gorgeous drive!

9. he texted this picture to us, his handprint on the the campus rock, 
along with the words i knew you'd want to see this. yes, cam... you were right.

We love American Pickers - so happy you got to visit there. Not sure we will ever get that way. I sure would love to visit their Tennessee location. Not sure when or if we will get that way either! Great peek into your life.
