Road Trip

On New Years Eve we celebrated two of our best friends getting married. It was an absolutely wonderful day and we couldn't be happier for them. It's going to be really hard to have a New Years that is more fun than that was!
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. O'Shea!

The next morning bright and early, err... noon
we started our 27+ hour drive to Florida!

Day 1: MN to Beloit, WI
Don't I have the cutest passenger?

 We stopped the first night in Beloit, WI and stayed with AJ's host family from this summer- the Hatch's. We were greeted with a huge prime rib dinner. Did I mention the Hatch's are amazing? It was fun to hang out and catch up with them.

Day 2: Beloit, WI to Chattanooga, TN
Some highlights--
                               Miniature Washington Monument                    Superman's hometown, Metropolis

Day 3: Tennessee to Estero, FL!
We left at 4:00am (3:00am MN time) so we would beat the Atlanta traffic. Needless to say by 8:00am, our eyelids were very heavy. We may have parked in a empty lot and closed our eyes for 20 minutes. Okay, we did. The most interesting stop of the day was the World's Largest Peanut. 

We arrived to our new home in Estero and started unloading our strategically packed cars. When people saw us unpacking our cars they stopped by to say hi and welcome us to the neighborhood. Everyone has been so friendly!

Willa met her future BFF's, our next door neighbors three dogs. A Pitbull, a Greyhound mix, and a German Shepherd mix. She would lay in our lanai all day and gaze at them if we let her (confident when there's a screen between them, of course) They still think she's a rabbit but I think they will be best friends eventually ;)
