On The Road Again...

Well, I was going to tell you about the guy that was going into Tar.get with at least 10 children hanging off of his cart, but then I decided that I would tell you about the minivan that just crossed 2 lanes of traffic in front of us to get to his off ramp. Talk about heart failure!

Now I'll tell you about how Ethan and Ben both had chocolate milk with their lunch and turned around and threw it all up in the bathroom at's in Franklin.

And now they're fine. Hmmm?

Earlier today Eric and I were trying to remember the time that Ben started running down a hill and couldn't stop. His little legs were just a movin'! We couldn't remember where we were when he did that.

And then...out of nowhere...while I was taking a drink of water...I remembered.

And Eric got a shower in the driver's seat. :) I couldn't help it. All I could see were those little legs going too fast. I laughed until I cried. Only because Ben didn't get hurt, of course!
Then I got some paper towel and cleaned off the dashboard, seat, radio, my shoes.... you get the picture!

I just won a Mario Kart Wii off of ebay while riding up I-65. How cool is that?

One more thing, we got to pack the van in the pouring rain this morning. It was a blast.

Yes, our return trip has been somewhat of an event.

We had a great week. I hope you all did, too. How was your Fourth of July?

I can't wait to post some pictures when I get back. I have a few!

That is SO cool! I'm so jealous of your traveling internet! And so sorry about the puking incident. That is no fun.

Thank you so much for leaving your comment for me! You are Blogger person I have met. I have been "journaling" for about four years at another location. :)

I was cracking up about your remembering Ben running down the hill. Moments like those are precious. I hope you have less incidents on the way home.

Can't wait to see your pictures!

That should read, "The the first blogger person I have met.

Chocolate milk the 2nd time around is TERRIBLE. I'm so sorry.

Can't wait for pix.

Sounds like quite the adventure. Glad you enjoyed your trip. Now the fun part, unpacking ;-)

Memories like those last forever. Better the Chilis in Franklin than the backseat of the car/van.
