+ 2 grandboys....
could = 3 on a BIG adventure
a fairly good visual
(...except trade a red-headed old lady behind the wheel)
Am I crazy? Do I need my head examined?
(Maybe there is a reason why Grandpa couldn't get off
of work to drive along with us?)
Well, at first thought...it sounded like such a FUN idea...
an easy "adventure". But, now...as the hours count down to sleep,
and I know I will be on the road tommorrow, about 7am...
headed for...Gig Harbor, Washington...well,
.......now, I'm feeling just a weee bit nervous.
The grandboys (6 and 9) are pretty well-behaved.
I've raised 5 children...tended grandkids alot. So, no worries, right?
Ok...I'll put on my "optimist" hat.
The trip is about 900 miles. I'm planning to do it in two days,
stopping in Pendleton, the first night. I have reservations at a hotel
that has a pool. I hope that the boys will enjoy swimming a bit after
sitting in the car for most of the day.
They will each have their own DVD player with movies,
DS with games, and earphones.
There will be an ice chest with food and drink, plus a
large bag of snacks.
I have several books that I can listen to thru the
speakers in the car.
I should be set! Yep...so, why do I feel stressed?
I've not driven this way before.
I know, I really shouldn't worry.
I have maps, gps, iPhone w/internet. And, I'm not
driving to a 3rd World Country.
Hopefully, I don't see this in my rear view mirror.
I don't want to have this happen...
I...seriously...could worry the bumps off of a WART!
Why? Gig Harbor, Washington...you ask...well,
our son and his family live on Raft Island which is in
Gig Harbor. They have a home that is in walking distance
to the water, and a boat. They have 3 little girls, two of which
are similar ages to the grandboys. You've probably figured it
out that they are cousins =)
I'll keep my fingers crossed and say my prayers...
and we will have LOTS of fun!
