Spring Break – day one // 03.04.2017

Today marked day one of Spring Break 2017. Kendall, Sam, Silas, Hannah, Chance, Ronnie and I packed our things into two cars and took off for Minnesota where we’re staying for the week.

It was a day filled with short naps, lots of laughs and an Iowan pit stop that smelled like manure. But hey — that’s all part of the fun.

The trip, totaling travel time and pit stops, took 14 hours and 10 minutes. It wasn’t too bad considering the high-quality friendship and memories. Podcasts, audiobooks and the “Hamilton” soundtrack made the road trip a little more bearable, too.

Here are some highlights from day one.

Also, a huge shoutout to Sam’s parents for opening up their home to us this week. We already feel so welcomed!

Tomorrow is church and lunch. And seeing Minnesota in the daylight.
