DAY 5+6 - Saturday+Sunday, March 24th+25th 2012
Somewhere in Texas to The Woodlands, TX
We took our time driving through Texas towards The Woodlands, where we were to stay with my Aunt Nancy and her family. We stopped in this cute little German town called Fredricksburg, to take a quick stroll and explore . Later we stopped in Austin, Texas for some Torchys Tacos and some Intelligentsia coffee at Franks. Hot tacos and hot coffee were probably not the best idea for the hot hot day in a muggy car, but it was well worth it. mmmmmm tacos. This was the shortest drive of our trip, about 6 hours. After we got to my aunts house, we chilled for a bit and then went out to dinner with the whole family, then stayed up chatting with my aunt until about one in the morning.
The Woodlands, TX to Seale, Alabama
Even though we had a 13 hour drive ahead of us, we slept in and were very slow moving getting out the door. My aunt also had us pull out some of our totes so she could go through and buy art. As we were putting things away, she called one of her neighbors over who bought some art as well.
I think we finally got on the road about noon. We had another long hot drive across Texas, stopping in Baton Rouge at the Apple store to see if anything could be done about Sarah’s computer. Sadly, it was dead and she had to buy herself a new one (which was in the plans over the next few months anyways, just really bad timing). We rolled into Seale, AL at about 2:30am (central time). Since we got in so late, my uncle let us sleep up at the house, rather than setting up a tent in the dark. The last few hours of the drive were hard, but totally worth it when we got to crawl into the uber comfy California King. -misha
