Road trip to NOLA

This is the beginning of our road trip from Bakersfield CA all the way to New Orleans LA. We left town about 3:30 in the afternoon and drove all night and all day Friday too. My parents, brother Jason, me, and my kids all went, it was a very long, but fun drive!
Cajon Pass, the boys loved seeing all the trains.

This is Friday morning when we stopped for breakfast. We are almost to the New Mexico border.

Here we are in New Mexico. We stopped at this little tourist trap. It felt good to get out of the car for a bit.

In Texas, we stopped at a place called Buc-ee's. We got lunch here and looked around, this place was crazy!
We stopped for the night in Kerrville, TX and then left at like 7:00AM Saturday morning for New Orleans.

We were excited to drive through Houston!

These signs were everywhere!

Having fun in the car.

Finally got to Baton Rouge and my first time seeing the Mississippi River. (flying over it in a plane doesn't count). Too bad it was dark already!

Almost there! We got to NOLA about 10:00pm Saturday night. We immediately went to bed!
Sunday coming soon!
