Friday morning Nick's alarm went off at 3 am and he hopped in the shower. He woke me up once he was out to begin getting ready, and by 4 we were on the road, heading to Mobile, Alabama for the night. We were en route to Florida! Time for the Korte Disney Trip.
Kate decided after we put her in the car that she would be wide awake for the rest of the day, so she watched movies in the back seat all day long. I slept for a few hours in the car so I would be able to take a shift driving after we stopped for breakfast, which occurred at Cracker Barrel in West Monroe, Louisiana. It's the road trip breakfast of champions, really. Breakfast cost us $4.45 because I had earned a $25 gift card from MyPoints.
Once again we were on the road before 4 am, only this time Kate went to sleep in the car, as did I. I got another 4 hours of sleep while Nick drove, and then after breakfast at Cracker Barrel again, I took over until we finished with lunch. We had some fun at a Busy Bee gas station during one of our rest stops. It rained off and on and then mostly on during the last few hours of our trip, which slowed us down a little bit.
After showering, I felt human again, and then Kate convinced Carol to give her a manicure before we went to dinner at Ghengis Grill. Kate asked me during dinner if we were getting up in the middle of the night again tonight. Poor thing! She's been a trooper, and tomorrow all her patience will be rewarded when we check into our hotel in Disney!
