Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

It's a bird. It's a plane.

It's Superman! We've put thousands of miles of asphalt under the tires of our minivan this summer (5510, give or take) and not once did we come across a giant ball of twine or the world's largest frying pan! I was so disappointed! So, when we stopped at a rest stop just north of Kentucky and saw a sign for a 15 foot Superman statue in the town of Metropolis, Illinois, we could not resist!

Superman and Super Isabel-Noah is escaping in the back ground!

Noah and Isabel, Goofing off!

Sitting in front of the Superman museum and gift shop...oh yeah, this town has it bad! We read that the Chamber of Commerce used to hand out bags of Kryptonite to the kids but had to stop when DC Comics claimed it was a copyright violation!
Our little excursion cost us and we only made it as far as Nashville today. Once we stopped for dinner, we couldn't get it together enough to get back on the road. The original plan had been to get to Chattanooga, but that did not happen. We let the kids take a swim in the hotel pool instead! The good news is that we got a text message from some adoption travel buddies, Anna and Shane, that live near Nashville. They are going to meet us for breakfast in the morning! We can't wait to see them and their amazing son, Yoyo!
