Monster trucks and a Hot Red Car 1.28.17 – 1.31.17

So, we are all into monster trucks in our family, so we always try and go see them when they get close enough. Usually the New Orleans show is big enough for them to do tricks, so that’s where we go. 

I feel like I need to add- I use credit cards for everything- like, everything- and I collect points. I use those points for our trips like these. We didn’t pay for our hotel room. It was points. All we had to pay was parking. And we usually get some perks for being a card member- like upgraded rooms to the top floor. 

We were right by the Superdome, so we walked there. And I was able to squeeze our whole group in a picture!

And we were all rooting for somebody. Judah was for Grave Digger, Lucy for ScoobyDoo because a girl drives that truck, Wes was for MaxD and I was for El Toro Loco. 

This is me and Lucy trash talking. She loves the shows more than Judah at times I think. 

And the show wasn’t as good as last years show, but we all had fun. 

Then… we had our own little adventure. Wes found a car her wanted in Houston. So his plan was- hitch a ride to his Dad’s, let them watch the kids, we fly to Houston, pick up the car and head home. 

And so that’s what we did. 

It worked really well because we didn’t have to take 2 vehicles to New Orleans. Wes’ dad picked us up from New Orleans on Sunday, and brought us back to the air port on Monday. 

We’ve never flown anywhere together. This was our first flight. And- you remember our free hotel room? Yep. Free plane tickets too. 

And we were in Houston in about an hour. 

We got an Uber ride from the airport to south Houston, or Sugar Land. Met up with the guy about 5 minutes after we got out off the Uber ride. Test drove, signed the title, paid him, and we were out. 

With or very shiny, very RED, car. 

We were back in Thibodaux by 6:30 that night. We were gone 12 hours. Then we crashed because we were so exhausted, and headed home the next morning. 

Judah liked riding in style, don’t let him fool you. The kids love the car. It has color change lights and they love that. Judah loves that it’s red. 

And then we got back to normal life. 

I’ve started helping a dear friend with her work. She teaches other people’s kids, she homeschools them and I’m helping her with Art and Science. So that’s been an interesting change. I haven’t really had to “go to work” in a long time. But I get to bring my kids and I teach them there and she helps me with them too, so it works out really well. 

Well, we are off to start our day. Hopefully you’ve been enjoying this beautiful week! Thank you south Mississippi for your winters! Haha!
