WHAT ALL YOU LISTERS MISSED BY NOT BEING WITH MY FAMILY ON OUR ROAD TRIP

I should have written down quotes my sister said (she's nine and so obviously hilarious) but I didn't. But you guys missed a great trip from NJ to FL.
  1. We drove to Florida in 17.5 hours
    Left Friday morning, arrived midnight Saturday morning. Then again on the way back Monday- midnight Tuesday.
  2. We ate at Waffle House AND Cracker Barrel
    Because we don't have either in New Jersey.
  3. I long boarded for 4 miles
    Growing up along the shore, I learned to long board (barefoot) during the summer at a young age. I missed it so much that I HAD to skate (barefoot) while there was warmth. And I arrived at this view.
  4. Bipolar Weather
    80 degrees F on Saturday. 40 degrees F on Sunday.
  5. My Dad and I ate gator
    And it was goooood.
  6. My little sister rarely stopped talking in the car
    She's nine. The excitement got to her.
  7. I took a nature walk by myself. Then again with my family.
    We found this dock.
  8. My sister texted me from the back seat
    She got really bored at one point. We talked about Santa and whether or not he has a cell phone with the number 1-800-SANTA. (And how Rudolf obviously does NOT use a cell phone. He prefers hand written sentiments) *note the spelling error of a nine year old.
  9. I stopped to look at the fishies
    There were SO many in a nearby river.
  10. I drove for the first time out of state
    South Carolina's got nothing on me.
  11. My sister and I made make-shift gas masks with pillow cases
    To block the smell of Georgia. I apologize if you're from Georgia, but parts of the state just smell like rotten eggs.
  12. Waking up and going straight into a pool and/or ocean
    One of my favorite things in the world.
  13. The many sunrises and sunsets that you experience on the road
    Another one of my favorite things.
