We got up and got out of town early Saturday morning. I knew it was going to take longer than the 81/2 hours that Google maps was telling us - mostly because of bathroom breaks and nursing breaks. We actually did a really good job minimizing stops but when we stopped it took a while. We also hit traffic in Birmingham and that added an hour or more to the trip. We stopped at the welcome center just over the border into Alabama and got to see this cool rocket. It was fun to stretch our legs and have something to look at!
