Ethan watched Mythbusters over … and over … and over! Oh my god, I was so ready for it to end!
First, I want to say that we did make it back safe and sound from Indiana. I was cool, calm and collected when we left, until Josh mentioned my dad. Then the waterworks began. I think that just proves that I’m a total Daddy’s girl. Which is fine, considering it is Father’s Day today!
Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing father I have ever known: my own. While I was in Indiana, I found out, without him ever saying it directly to me, how much my father truly loved me.
Also, Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing father I could have ever asked to have for my kids! Josh, I adore how wonderful you are with our kids! I love you!
Now, onto the pictures!
I found an easy way to make my kids happy: I bought them happy meals this afternoon for lunch. I had to get gas in the truck. I haven’t gotten it since June 10, so I’m not going to even consider complaining that I spent less than $40 in gas on an 01 Trailblazer, which is an SUV. Nope, that’s not bad at all. I’m only getting about 16mpg, but I’m doing mostly city driving now. The car is our “long haul” trip vehicle, unless we have to TAKE something, and then it’s the Trailblazer.
So, going to McDonald’s, I saved us some money. If I had gone to Walmart, I wouldn’t have just gotten lunch. No I would have ended up with a bunch of other junk, crap that we don’t need. So, for less than $15, we all three got a lunch that made us full.
And I got to make my children smile with a minimum of fuss. So, priceless!
I don’t want my vacation to end. I’m loving it here at my parents. This couch that I’m sitting on? Comfy as hell. This TV I’m watching Mom play MarioKart on? Huge as hell.
Basically, here’s the breakdown:
2 tanks of gas
Groceries for trip
Bags for packing my sister’s baby stuff
Baby shower stuff
Baby monitor for my parents house
The cost of it? Priceless because I’m getting to spend time with my family. And I’m loving it.
Even if my sister is deciding to be a pain the patootie, :lol:. Just chalk that up to pregnancy hormones and Megan being Megan 🙂
