Road Trip Day 2

Hi Neighbors!

We made it to Texas! Much better weather here. After a quick drive from our hotel to Dallas, we started visiting some of our favorite stores. They are called Half Price Books. (Read tomorrows post for more information on Half Price and a giveaway! I think we went to 8-9 stores. My family reads alot. We brought 6 bins of books with us to trade in. Everyone went through their books before leaving on the trip and actually found some we were willing to part with. Of course we plan to get more!

Above is the vehicle we are traveling in, along with the pull behind cargo trailer.

We managed a quick lunch in between bookstores. On the way to our hotel for the evening we stopped at a grocery store to get subs for dinner, along with some flavored waters. It was a long day. We arrived at the hotel around 9:00 pm and then my husband and older daughter ran out to get ice cream while the rest of us cleaned up and got the room ready for the evening.

Rising early this morning we headed out to Abilene. Of course we stopped at 3 more Half Price Bookstores on the way! We had lunch at Sweet Tomatoes. It was really good. Make sure you enter the Sweet Tomatoes Giveaway, it ends 4/9. It is for 2 meal passes!

After arriving in Abilene we checked in to our hotel and after racing around to get ready we headed to church. (My husband preached.) Grabbed a bite to eat and we are back in the hotel for the evening.

Can you tell we are in Texas?

Make sure to stop by tomorrow to see how the road trip is going and to enter the Half Price Books giveaway!
