Day 9: FL to Dunn NC

Got started a little late this morning (to be expected) but we were on the road by 9 am. After a quick stop at Mickey Ds for breakfast we flew through Florida and most of Georgia. Only one potty break the whole way thru.

Stopped for lunch (also Mickey Ds) outside of Savanna and that appears to be our downfall, because I we stopped three time in SC (and passed the same truck towing a huge boat three times). The first stop was for Kris to "pretend" to pour milk into Megan's bottle because Kim had poured it and she wanted Mommy to do it (cried from Savanna GA until we stopped in SC to resolve the problem).

Stopped for AJ to go to the bathroom at the next rest area.

Stopped to change a very nasty Riley diaper a few miles further along (Kim's response to Riley's request to stop while she actually did the deed "Sorry kiddo - nobody else gets a poopy break"). Hey - at least we stopped to change the diaper.

Even with the stops we made excellent time. We passed Dillon SC after 8.5 hours, and it took us 9.5 hours to get from Dillon to Ron Jons.

We made it to Dunn in another hour and the kids enjoyed a quick swim in the pool while we ran for some dinner and chocolates from Cracker Barrel.

Planning an early wakeup call and start tomorrow, our final day - I think everyone is looking forward to getting home!
