Underway.

We got off to a late start yesterday. That's always how we roll. We had a hard time saying goodbye to all of our dear neighbors! Thanks to everyone pitching in, the trailer is painted and pretty inside, and will feel like home.  Our sweet friends brought us pizza, cooked us dinners, popped over with lunch, helped clean the house, and one stayed hours inside the hot trailer painting so we could get things wrapped up before leaving.  (She painted the thing in her panties. No kidding. Don't be judgey. It was like painting the inside of a stove, y'all.)

 Setting off. My nice, new, talented neighbor offered to take a pic before we left, then hung around graciously for thirteen hours while we gathered the kids for said pic.

Here are some pics of the interior. We have some work to do still on the bathroom, and we never did get to the wallpaper. Next trip.  

 the kitchen - replaced the stove with a coffee machine. way more important.  We removed the bulky bulky bulkheads and though still tight for our big family, it's much more open and airy.

 Chalk wall was a good call. (Thanks, Anna!) Kind of tacky couch pulls out to a double ish bed. It's soft and fabulous.

 Not tacky teepee fabric. This pulls out and Jane and Henry sleep on it.   The girls have a bunk bed in the back room, and we have a queen bed in the front. With a door.

So, we were totally excited to sleep in this but I failed to make any reservations. And nothing at all was available. Because, Memorial Day weekend. First stop was an Embassy Suites in Nashville.   

While we were traveling up to Nashville, my Nashvillian friend Emily texted to say "saw an airstream on the interstate and thought of you" and It WAS me.  

Tomorrow we head to Kansas. Off to Topeka, where I have booked something.
