Farm Road Trip Day FOUR

after swimming themselves tired we hit the road for our short last leg of the trip. We were so close and we all knew it! The time went by quickly... we listened to Jonathan Park and took in the beauty of the open road.

Can you say... BUGS!!!
We finally made it the little town exit off of the interstate...
to someone used to the city it feels a bit like a deserted town. We never did see a car once we got off the exit.

the paved roads had turned to dirt
long ago and not so long ago roads were either completely under water or covered in cattails.

It's a sight I tell ya, a sight to see!

we didn't see any cars but we did see a train go by... I think that is very common out here!

We are so glad to be here... safe and sound. We are slowly unpacking and settling into the "old" "little" house.

I'll be sharing pictures soon!
