This summer's family vacation started the same way many do.
With a tearful "see you soon" to Brisket and a speeding ticket in Louisiana.
The last 200 miles took about 6 hours so the kids burned off some energy as soon as we put the car in Park. (Fat lotta help they were with the luggage.)
We decided to break up the drive home so Saturday morning, we got up early to be among the first aboard the USS Alabama in Mobile.
After visiting the airplane hangar (and the gift shop), we hit the road toward New Orleans.
NOLA, we can't wait to go back.
