Goin' on a trip
Thursday, July 07, 2011
Got home from last vacation in Tennessee two weeks ago. Took the 3 grandkids with us. Thought I had them 12 hours a day, what's another 12 after all they do sleep thru the night. The oldest (12) brought his laptop and couldn't hook up to the WIFI at the resort. Contrary to his opinion he did live all week long. As soon as he got home he went to his room to LOGON and has rarely been seen since.
The girl (9) is getting into the teen-opinionated mode and takes after her mother in the my room is messy and that's the way I like it. Spilled a strawberry shake on the bedspread, had silly putty on the blanket.
The "big boy" (4 in August) wanted to follow big brother and sister to the park that was right across neighborhood street.
All in all they were pretty good. G-pa took the 12 yr old fishing in the boat and caught 4 fish.
The 9 yr went fishing with him on the dock and 2 fish were caught. Turned out to be expensive fish.
License for G-pa $25
Took a 2nd car to haul boat - gas $125
That's $25 per fish (but they were good).
They were supposed to go to Orlando with us along with their Mom and Dad. Mom decided to back out of the trip and put the money to other uses. Staycation at home and get caught up on some stuff that needs to be done at home. Said that G-pa and G-ma needed some alone time.
So off we will go, just the two of us. Our bags has been packed since we got home from Tennessee (came home with clean clothes). Just have to put in the last minute items, food cooler and take off on Sat a.m.
Will take advantage of the Exercise room at the resort, walk around Epcot and lounge by the pool. Taking my laptop with so I can keep up with Sparkpeople.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.
