However, as we have to try and clear Kansas City by tonight, we have to be on the road for quite sometime today - and it hasn't been helped by the fact that we have crossed into another time zone and lost an hour.

Had tacos for dinner and now we're taking it easy. Will probably fall asleep at 9 pm again. Haha.
Last night we watched a movie together, called "Red". It was pretty good.
Will upload some pictures from today aswell.
