Back from Vacation!

Hey everybody-I'm back from our road trip/vacation! I have to say not too much mayhem to report it went fairly well. Even though we did fit in a 13 hr trip in 1 day. We went from here (Oklahoma) to Georgia and stayed in the Atlanta area. On the way there we went through about 5 states not counting OK- Arkansas, Tennesse, Mississippi (and yes I did just use that little poem to spell Mi-ss-i-ss-i-pp-i ;),Alabama,and Georgia. I tried to get a pic. of all the states signs but Alabama and Georgia eluded me -I think I was asleep when we hit Georgia =D.

The most mayhem that happened on the way was getting a little lost in Memphis and Birmingham but,not too bad. On the way we did pass through Conway,AR and Tupelo,Mississippi -2 hometowns of great singers-The newest American Idol-Kris Allen and of course The King of Rock n Roll-Elvis!

One day I hope to go back that way and do an Elvis tour-Graceland;Tupelo. But,being that we were already on a 13 hr. trip -we got to our destination late-Like about 1:30am after having a few stops to eat and all. By the time we got there we were ready to crash so, we did.

The next day (or later that day)-Sunday was pretty leisurely hanging out at my Brother in-Law's house. The kids had fun playing on their trampoline,going to the neighborhood park,swimming pool-etc.
I even got the shower situation figured out I used the shower upstairs and went down to the half bath to finish getting ready-I've figured out that it's not that I take all that long of a shower 15 minutes or so but, other things can take just as long. Brushing teeth about 2mins there,putting my contacts in a few min's there-depending how cooperative they are,other personal hygiene rituals a few minutes again. So,I do take a good 30-45mins in all. Which seems pretty normal to me-But, I'm glad we got that situation figured out. What I didn't expect is the lack of internet -They actually turn the internet off at their house most of the time-So you have to ask permission to have it on and then generally have a little while to use it-even though I took my laptop -I didn't use it much. So, I'm just getting halfway settled in back at our house and will tell you more about our vacation later- Stay tuned again!
