Roadrunner Recap: Caught Up in Dallas

The last couple of days we have been helping Kelly pack up and move out of her home in Dallas.  She rented a PODS unit and it arrived in front of her house on Tuesday.
It took a while to get things out of the house and onto the lawn and then into the unit.  Meanwhile it was hot!
At 103 degrees, the sweat was rolling off me everywhere.  I really didn't mind--to me it is like a good work out and a sauna.  I must have drunk half a dozen bottles of water and Gatorade!

After a long day Tuesday, we went for sushi and noodles at the Asian Fusion Cafe and Dessert Bar. Yum!
Next we went to The Porch which is a Tuesday night service for the younger crowd (20's and 30's) at Watermark Church in Dallas.  They have a beautiful facility and the message on 'Being the Exact Opposite' was good. 
After the service people hang around and talk.  Kelly got to see some friends and say goodbye and they agreed to a picture for the blog:
Here is a good looking group of accomplished, hard working young professionals!

Then yesterday, we finished loading up the PODS unit.
And I had some work to do in the garage on patching a couple of holes in the garage wall.
We will be finishing that up and the PODS will be picked up for delivery next week in Virginia Beach.

That wraps up another day of the Roadrunner Chronicles!  We appreciate you taking a look today.  Hope you are having a good week and thanks for all the comments.


  1. So, now will you be hotfooting it across country to help her unpack? :)

  2. Nothing I hate worse than packing things up for a big move! I can't imagine doing it in 103 degree weather either.

  3. all in days work!!..what a good Dad you are!!

  4. I hope there is a pod in my future.

    It is good of you to help her pack.

    Be cool.

  5. You guys look like you worked like crazy, especially in the Texas heat of the day.
    But what are parents good for, if you can't get a little work out of them!!! LOL

    Have a cooler day tomorrow!

  6. This is what I get for being out of the loop for a few days. Last I read you guys were in Canada attending a wedding and now!
    Glad you made is safely to your destination and have Kelly all packed up. You must have sweated off several pounds in that heat!

  7. I have the best parents ever. So thankful for them and all the moves they've helped me with... among other things, of course.
