A couple of years ago, Steve and I came to the definitive conclusion that there are two main types of "get-aways": a trip and a vacation. A trip is when you spend three days packing enough clothes and loot to weigh down the back of your van so much that you have to stop by a gas station on the way out of town and put air in your back tires. In addition, you must squeeze all of your children into the van with backpacks full of treasures, entertainment and snacks. Finally, the front seats must be wedged with maps, tour brochures, caffinated beverages, and a lengthly list of rules about whining, elbows, potty stops, begging, fists, oh and did I mention whining?? A vacation is when you and your husband go somewhere alone and it does not involve any of the above mentioned descriptives.
We are currently on a trip. With the boys. In an RV. (Steve's idea.)
Here are some of the highlights of our "trip" thus far!:
