The Drive Day 2&3 (TN to TX)
If you missed Day One of our move from NY to TX, you can find that here.
Day 2 - Knoxville, TN to Baton Rouge, LA
Day 2 of driving was marked with several eventful moments I won't soon forget. We started off the morning slowly. Eve had a rough night and didn't sleep much. Considering she slept more in the car I am not shocked that she didn't want to sleep at night. We took turns taking care of her at night so that we both got the sleep we needed to function in the morning. We would be driving again and wanted to do so safely.
While on the road we hit one spot of traffic from bad accident. Don't worry folks we were stopped in traffic when I took this picture. I hope the no one was injured because it looked pretty bad from what I could see.
After we got through the traffic we decided to have a pit stop. We picked up food for Bear to eat while we drove. Once we had gotten back on the road he took a break from eating to have a sip of water. He placed his chicken fries on the box that was between the two kids. I went around a turn and knocked his chicken into Eve's car seat. While she can handle eating food like that I highly prefer she does so with supervision. Bear freaked out that she had his food. This meant I had to pull over on the side of a highway. I quickly hopped out and tossed the chicken into Bears lap so that I could get away from the road to really clean them up. Eve never actually took a bite, but it could have been bad. When we got back on the road Bear handed me the chicken when he was done eating rather than putting them back on the box.
Day 3 - Baton Rouge, LA to San Antonio, TX
The next morning we had one final push to get to San Antonio, TX. It was a pretty easy morning since we all slept well. I changed the show to Wallykazam which held the kid's attention better since they had not seen it in so long.
