Random Vacation Thoughts

A three hour car ride goes by in no time when you have Marathon Girl to talk with. Drinking large quantities of water makes it hard to drive with out at least stopping once.

When it's 104 degrees outside, it makes me very glad can keep the inside of the minivan a constant 71 degrees.

Aidan is fascinated by farm animals. Steven is fascinated by new faces.

Even on vacation, I'm glad our kids have nap time. After chasing after our kids all morning, Marathon Girl and I need some downtime too.

Not only am I the only Detroit Tiger fan in the state of Utah, I'm also the only Tiger fan in the state of Idaho.

I think if we let Aidan live on a dairy farm, he'd be the happiest boy in the world.

Aidan thought cows were the coolest animal until one of them tried to lick him. After that he was convinced cows ate little boys.

The nice thing about Grandmothers is not only are they good cooks, they seem to have an endless supply of good food in their house.

I was amazed how well Aidan got along with his cousins, even though they were several years older than him.

I love our minivan more and more. Taking the same trip in one of our old cars would have been nearly as enjoyable.

One of the best parts of a vacation is being able to discover new running routes.

Where you go on vacation isn't nearly as important as who goes with you. For example you can go to a fairly normal, everyday place and have fun because you're with good company. On the other hand, you can go to a very exotic place and hate it because your traveling companions annoy you. Fortunately I have Marathon Girl to travel with and can have a good time wherever I go.

Nothing beats sleeping in your own bed.
