Summer Vacation #92 - Road Trip
When I was a little girl we went on many road trips, and when my boys were little, they knew it was going to be special day when they heard the term "Road Trip". You see, I would never want to disappoint my kids since they always seemed to have a knack for getting sick right before an event. It also avoided their nagging waiting for the event to arrive. So my husband and I would just get them dressed and stick them in the car and say "Road Trip". We've gone to such places as Radio City Music Hall, The Renaisance Fair in upstate NY, Disney World (but that was a "Plane Trip") and to such normal things as going to The Zoo, The Aquarium or even the movies. I have told this story to some of the teachers at my school, and now they do the same with their kids. It becomes an adventure that way, and they know something special is in the works when they get in the car and we announce "Road Trip".
So for our theme this week which is Summer Vacation I decided to use this image from Mo's called Eli which you can find HERE
since many of us go on "Road Trips' for our summer vacation this was just perfect and brought back many memories. So thank's Elaine for another fantastic theme and for helping me remember the many trips and adventures we had when my kids were young.
