I am blogging from a different computer, I bet you couldn't tell

creeping pages load
missing blazing fast surfing
dial-up goes so slow

We had a rather uneventful drive up north. We did not leave until late since we neglected to pack last night, leaving it for this morning. Things were left behind but nothing that could not be replaced easily. My husband learned a very important life lesson: never order anything from Burger King except a Whopper. He got one of those new BK stacker burgers thinking that it would be a rather large burger fit for his manly hunger. His double contained roughly the same amount of meat that my single whopper contained. Needless to say he was quite miffed.

Evan and Harry have been busy helping grandma and grandpa baby proof. They also ran around in circles between the kitchen and the living room. For some reason they were very tired at bed time and went down with out a peep. Evan loved that he got to have his medication mixed with ice cream instead of his usual yogurt.

I have convinced my husband that on the way home we will be taking it slow and actually stopping at some of the truly odd road side attractions. I am planning on taking pictures to share since I have a good feeling that there are a lot of laughs to be had. There are many chain saw sculptures of Bigfoot and that is just too ripe for mocking to pass up.

Mixing the meds in icecream is C's favorite as well! That's what grandmas are for!

Enjoy your visit. And do stop to take pictures on the way home ... I look forward to seeing them :)! How long of a drive is it?

I love driving up there. The road side stops are great for a few laughs. DH and I have been wanting to take a trip up to show the kids what "big" trees look like.
