CALL (623) 544-0300 At the beginning of this year, my family was finally able to take the cross-country trip we’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. We were able to visit relatives we haven’t seen in ages and experience new and exciting destinations in the Southeast. The first stop on our road trip was Tennessee. David’s dad is originally from there, but he lived in Arizona for a good chunk of his life. After retiring, my father-in-law and his wife decided to move back to his hometown. Although we’ve kept up with that side of the family via phone calls and social media, the kids hadn’t seen their Grandpa and Grandma McWhorter since they were about 2 and 3 years old (they are now 11 and 12). So we were overdue for a visit. No matter where we traveled, we seemed to bring the cold and Storm Grayson with us. While staying with family in the small town of Camden,
“We stayed in the historic Peabody hotel, which was incredible — except for the next morning when the fire alarm went off and we had to walk eight stories down the outdoor fire escape in the minus-3-degree wind chill to safety." good night’s rest, we enjoyed Disney World for four straight days. We covered the whole park: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. The temperature had finally warmed up by then, and although it was only 75 degrees, the humidity made it feel more like 85. We finished up our road trip at a business conference in Atlanta, which was pretty tame compared to the rest of our trip. However, for the last two days in Atlanta, Storm Grayson showed up again with cold, and it snowed the day that we headed home. The whole vacation took us about three weeks, and every single day was worth it. But by the end, I was ready to sleep in my own bed and get back to work! The kids had a great time, and they are already talking about the next time they get to see Grandpa and Grandma McWhorter in Tennessee.
Tennessee, there were record-breaking cold temperatures and snow in an area that does not usually get snow. We headed to Graceland with the storm right at our heels. In Memphis, we stayed in the historic Peabody hotel, which was incredible — except for the next morning when the fire alarm went off and we had to walk eight stories down the outdoor fire escape in the minus-3-degree wind chill to safety. Fortunately, it was a false alarm and we were able to go back into the warm hotel. Next, we drove to Savannah, Georgia. It started snowing that night and continued the whole time we were there. Savannah isn’t accustomed to snow, so most of the restaurants and historical sites were closed. Since we didn’t want to be stuck in the hotel for several days, we bundled up and walked around to look at the gorgeous houses. My toes were definitely frostbitten by the time we got back, but it was worth it. After arriving in Florida, the snow stopped, but the air outside was still very cold. First, we experienced the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, which was incredible. We then took a day off to shop and relax. After a
I hope you had a wonderful Easter. We look forward to seeing you soon.
