Road Tripping

Road trips mean road food, and of course when we are down south we have to stop in to a Krispy Kreme! We don’t have any of the storefronts around where we live, so we get excited about watching the donuts come of the conveyer belts. I picked up one of their birthday mugs and tin of donuts for us all.

Once in South Carolina we went to Mitchelville beach with my parents. When the tide is out it is the best for finding shells and watching the wild life. You have to walk out so far to get to the water, its wonderful! We saw horseshoe crabs, millions of little sand crabs. You can also find huge amazing shells..but most of them have little creatures inside so you can’t keep them, but I always think it’s kind of fun to check.

We saw a lot of great neon signs on the road, I think’s its funny when restaurants have cute cartoon versions of the animals they serve…poor little joe! My other favorite pig is of course the Piggly Wiggly mascot. I was excited that they had coffee mugs this time.
On the drive back home we had to stop in to South Of The Border. It was getting dark so all the great neon signs were on. Our favorite thing though was a little mine craft creeper someone had attached to one of the buildings. B said it just made his night! It was a crazy fun road trip though, lots of hotels (and swimming in the hotel pools!!) Lucky for me Heather did all the highway driving (I had made a deal that I would rent the car if she did the driving, I think I lucked out)

    Heidi,
    We always stopped @ South of the Border when we would go to MB or Daytona when we lived in Hagerstown. I did it as a kid growing up and when my kids were little. Even when it was just George and I we’d stop, just for the lights at night was worth it. :-) And a ice cream too. :-)

    looks like a really fun trip, I always like finding new places to eat, especially if I’ve heard good things
