So you know I was on vacation last week.
Reunion, living at the beach, blah, blah, blah.
I won't fill you in on a weeks worth of itinerary. But I will highlight a few things I thought were fun and/or interesting.
For much of my week, this was my view of the boys.
We have beautiful sunsets at the beach.
And GREAT bonfires
And thank you Lori and Superstore, for the drinks as you went by!
Each of the players names are on the plaques.
Some may think it morbid, but weather permitting, the boys and I always go to the graveyard when I'm home.
We have a short visit. I tell him how much I miss him. Then we leave.
I've noticed as the boys have gotten older, (and now that they can do math lol) they will look at the headstones they pass and will notice how old a person was when they died.
No matter which path we take, it will always bring about an 'Awww look mom, he was only a baby. She was only 16. This guy died in 1902! '
And then all of a sudden 'This guy must have been rich! Look at the size of that one!'
When we reached the end of the side road, we could either turn left, hit the gas station, then the highway, or right, out of our way to a gas station, then backtrack and head to the highway.
I went right.
Still not sure why. Would have been easier to go the other way, but I went right.
Got the gas, went into the store, and made a comment about the rise in price.
That's when I notice the guy on the phone, looking more than a little peeved.
The clerk rings me in and said 'Yeah, we can't get the price to change though'.
Peeved Phone Dude pipes up and says 'I'm on the phone with head office now, we can't get the computers to change the price. So you're still paying yesterday's price.'
Well WOOHOO for me! Happy dance at the gas bar counter!
Kids were great, but it rained. SHEETS of rain, for the first 2.5 hrs of the trip.
Once we hit the Nova Scotia border ... no rain. LITERALLY. It was like crossing the imaginary weather line.
Ahhh it was good to be home!
My final weekend of Vacation 2009, ended with the boys going to their father's, a girls night out, and a bit of down time.
And those, Ma'am, were just the facts.
