Slice 2012 16 of 31: Clouds

We are now officially 16 hours into the car ride and I feel grateful of the ease of the drive. Traffic has been light (even through Atlanta). The kids have been occupied and patient while stuck in the car for a day. And, the car top carrier that we borrowed hasn't flown off the roof (this is what I have been most nervous about ).
The peaceful ride has allowed us all to enjoy the view along the way. We have appreciated the blossoming dogwoods and the flowering bushes but mostly the clouds. They have been so crisp and distinct. They look like fluffy white figures of art created for us to interpret. I've imagined a duck, my husband's seen a clown and Matt swears he saw a unicorn, all disassembling before another could spot what the other had envisioned. The clouds have kept us company.

Thx for the idea of looking at clouds. We are behind you....its night just entered Tennessee and about to stop in an hour for sleep.

What gorgeous clouds you have had following you. I'm glad the trip has been uneventful and you've spent some time together thinking about the clouds.

Ahh, I'm jealous. I'm so ready for a car trip. And although the time in the car can become tedious, I love the anticipation of getting there. And I also love the trip home, knowing I'll be in my own bed. Have a wonderful time!

What wonderful memories you are making with your kids and it's all recorded in your blog. I hope you have a restful vacation. I love those spring break trips to the south. It's so nice to be in the sunshine and see the flowers blooming in the middle of March.
