Then it was a long stretch of Wyoming with gallons of windshield washer fluid and a bunch of dayquil pills to pass the time. Well we are beat and passing out at Casa de Hess to ready ourselves for unpacking. Stay tuned for the un-abridged version of the drive on a later post. I want to thank Juju and Amanda for carting us around Denver!

We are currently on the road, somewhere in the middle of Kansas. The drive is going well and we've been making good time. Today we're headed all the way to Denver, CO.
Yesterday, we got an early start on our drive from Indianapolis, IN to Joplin, MO. We entered the central time zone somewhere in Illinois, and made a pit stop in St. Louis, MO to check out the arch, aka the "gateway to the west."
The arch was really cool, and Romy loved walking around the grounds and along the St. Louis Riverfront area along the Mississippi River. Afterward, we grabbed some lunch at Steak-n-Shake (delicious!) and hit the road again.
We made it to Joplin around 6:15 pm (CT). We helped Nate & Abby hand out candy to kids in their neighborhood, and rescued Romy from escaping through the front door to chase little princesses and pirates multiple times! We got a good night of sleep so we could hit the road early again today. Before leaving, we got an awesome breakfast from the Mutics and drove through some of the tornado devastation -- it was crazy, it was basically just like entire neighborhoods were gone.
We've got a long day of driving ahead to Denver, and then tomorrow we're headed to Salt Lake City! I'm so excited to see our house and to start getting settled in. Stay tuned!! :)
