Anytime I get ready for a road trip, the above images come to mind, and I can't help but hear the song, "Holiday Road" in my head. I mean who can forget the long awaited, much anticipated journey to the extremely underwhelming Wally World Water Park??? Not to mention cruising in the baddest "wagon queen family truckster"? That car was so freakin' awesome!
This weekend is Labor Day weekend. Initially, I was going to take Friday off work to go to Swiss Days - one of Utah's biggest and best craft fairs around. In fact many, if not all of my neighbors, including fellow bloggers, would say that missing such a glorious event would be blasphemous. Truly.
So, I will have to repent now to the Goddess of Swiss Days, as I have had a better, yet still sanctimonious offer. I Am Not Ashamed!
NurseMom & MrBusDr have invited us to their place for the weekend. There is sure to be swimming, thanks to MrBusDr's tireless efforts to get the pool ready (aka, PoolBoy). And we've been told we are attending a luau and to bring our own Aloha Wear. The Coconut Bra definitely fits in the suitcase. However, the 3 off-spring made me promise not to embarrass them, so that's out. There is sure to be "gaming" as well. What would a weekend in Carson City be without Championship Rounds of a game we like to call "Bob"? [EmilyJuice & Ruthykins, you better be there!] Perhaps we will even have a Bob-A-Thon!!! (That's entirely another post.) Oh - And MrBusDr, you're in charge of your Famous Caramel Corn and Dill-Pickle Chips!
Awaaaaaay We Go!!! 1 Mindless Banterer? Check! 3 off-spring? Check. 4-legged-creature? Check. A little money, lots of tunage, a trunkload of junkfood, and The Good Lord willing - a safe journey? Check. Check. Check. And...(with faith) Check!
Please don't worry - we won't be gone long. Besides, I've left the Blog in Good Hands. BigMouthBrenda has agreed to leave the comfort of her single-wide and come on over to "house-sit" while we're away. She may not look like much with her hair up in rollers and the left-side of her house-dress all up in Wedge-Field (I couldn't bring myself to tell her), but she definitely has a gift of gab that you're sure to enjoy - so check back often!
FYI... definitely come back for Friday's Fun Festivities (I've got one scheduled to post at 12:01 am.)
[singing]...I found out long ago It's a long way down the Holiday Road. Holiday Road.......Holiday Road...
