When we checked the weather forcast yesterday it said it would rain all the way to Texas. We were a bit worried. We got up at 5 a.m. and were on the road at six.

We were lucky. It rained on us only a few times. Of course we had to stop at the Orange, TX rest stop. It’s Johns tradition. We have several rest stops that we always visit while driving to Texas.

While at the rest stop in Orange, we saw a raccoon. I have never seen a raccoon in the wild before. We didn’t stay long, but Lucas had to climb on the star again!

 We made really good time today and we in San Antonio at 7:00 p.m. sharp. It’s exactly 800 miles from our house to my in laws.
