Road tripping with the offspring…

This past weekend, the Girl, the Skater and I drove to Dallas to be with Grandma & Grandpa to celebrate her cancer-free 60th birthday. Believe me, if we’re within driving distance of a party, we’re there. I may have mentioned a time or two hundred that I do love road trips. It really doesn’t matter how near or far, as long as we get to go for a ride in the car.

And a road trip with the kids, well, that’s just plain fun.

the Girl (reading a magazine in the front seat):   Quit reading over my shoulder!

the Skater (crammed into the space between the front seats):   I’m not reading.  I’m looking at the pictures.

Girl: Well quit it!

Skater: It’s just the pictures!

Girl: It’s my magazine!

Skater: The pictures are right there where I can see them!

Girl: Too bad.  Want me to call you a wanh-mbulance?

Twenty minutes later, Skater is sitting in the backseat, eating a brownie pilfered from the leftovers from the party. The Girl gets a whiff of Ghirardelli chocolate brownie with the Symphony bar in the middle.

Girl:  Did you get me one?!

Skater: Nope.

Girl: That’s rude.

Skater: Here, let me get you a wanh-mburger and some french cries.

The “kids”? Are 23 and 19 years old.

Some things never change.

Wordless Wednesday…with some words…

I like wordless Wednesdays. It gives me a chance to show off some pictures that I have cramming up my phone. Let’s see, since you’ve alread...
