Oh Say Can You See?

In a patriotic tribute..Word Verification does not fail me! Mind you, I am on a family road trip vacation for 11 days so my creativity is a little on the flat side this week!!!


perhaps wOrd verificatiOn knew what he was talking about when he realized that my family would be spending 2 plus days in a strange town in Virginia while the car was has 2 cracked rims and flat tires. We are scheduled to be in DC and it seems like nothing is going right for yes, bOredum is on the list of tO-dO's that we can crOss Off!


Oh Yes!!! There is spendige when we are on vacation....even if we try not to have spendige. Way more then we ever plan on spendige!


If only our trunk could speak! The LOAD that poor poor baby has been carrying for 1200 miles and only 1200 more on the way back!!

and here is the winner for the week...


ah yes, as we take our children on a vacation to Washington DC we are paying TRIBUTE to our nation, the people who serve us every day and the amazing monuments here in DC.

So, I would personally love to say an enormous THANK YOU to all of our troops, the wives, and husbands and even children who serve our country to make it better.

We could not BE without you!!!

(in the funny words of Receiver "Fanks Soldier Mans")

Hope everyone is having a great week!!! ;)


  1. Ah yes..spendige is what vacation is all about :)

    Well said Receiver!! "Fanks Soldier Mans"!!!!

  2. OH NO! I hate that you had car trouble. I hope everything is going well for y'all now. Man, 1200 one way trip?!!! Shew, just getting to your destination is a lot of spendige.

    I wanna Fank the Soldier Mans too for all they do!

    Have fun and be safe.

  5. We just dealt with vacation spendige too! WAY too much spendige...LOL. So sorry y'all had car problems! But you spent the Fourth in DC? How cool would that be?? I bet the fireworks were spectacular.
