Tuesday, June 3 - Drive Independence, MO, to Nashville - 546 miles

Total miles driven: 2,672, which doesn't count the local driving we did, so probably closer to 3,000 miles

Yes, we did the whole trip back in two days. In the 36 hours from 7 am Monday to 7 pm Tuesday, we drove 22 hours. And we thanked God for a portable DVD player for the kids (mainly Kinsey) to watch.

It really was a fun trip and the kids did very well over all. We got some great pictures and some wonderful memories that I know at least Kinsey will have. And now, back to the first full week of work in 3 weeks... yay...
