Mike and Adele are Headed to Town (Photostory)
Music is blaring from the car stereo as they head down the highway. Sydney loves music and this always makes car travel with her a little easier.
It's been about 3 hours since they left their old home. A relatively uneventful trip except for a few crazy bike riders who decided to whiz by doing no less than 90 - 100 miles an hour.
"Honey, do you mind rubbing my neck?" (Mike)
"Sure. How's that?" (Adele)
"Hmmm. That feels good." (Mike)
Whining sounds from the back interrupt Mike's neck massage.
"Now what? Are you making a fuss for a reason?" (Adele)
Sydney has started whining and seems to be on the verge of crying.
"I know. You're tired of being in that seat. Hold on, we'll be stopping soon. Where's your juice?" (Adele)
Adele spots the cup on the floor. There is a little juice left. Hopefully enough to get them to their next stop.
"There you go. Drink your juice. Mommy will get you out soon." (Adele)
"So, I guess we should stop for a bite to eat. What would you like?" (Mike)
"I know you want MickeyD's, so we can stop there this time." (Adele)
"Look, there's a McDonalds at the next exit." (Adele)
They take the next exit and arrive at McDonald's. Mike has this thing about not parking near other cars, so he heads to the opposite side of the parking lot.
"Did you want me to bring her cup?" (Mike)
"No. There's probably nothing in her cup. I'll fill it up when we get back to the car." (Adele)
"I almost forgot. I need to grab a diaper." (Adele)
"Welcome to McDonald's. What can I get you, today?" (Worker)
"I'll have a 6-piece nuggets, a large fry, and a strawberry shake." (Adele)
"For you, sir?" (Worker)
"I'll take a number 3, but I'd like to upgrade the drink to a chocolate shake." (Mike)
The restaurant is pretty crowded, but Mike and Adele are able to get a booth.
"Feels a little sad leaving Chicago." (Adele)
"I know, but it's a great opportunity and Northern Virginia is a really nice area." (Mike)
"Having my sister there will be a big help with the transition. I wonder how she and Mark are making out. I've been so busy, I haven't had a chance to check on her." (Adele)
"Is it good? No wonder you were fussing. You were hungry." (Adele)
The Jordans hit the road again, after finishing their lunch and a quick diaper change for Sydney. They should be arriving in Morristown soon.
