ROAD TRIP!
Published on Friday, April 2, 2010 by

Today is THE DAY.  After a full day of work, I will be going home, loading up the van and hauling three teens and my daughter to the Outer Banks.  No doubt I will need a Java Monster to keep me awake on the road.  We will be meeting Mom at the beach house for three full days and four nights of glorious peace over Easter break.  This is our first trip of the year and I am still in disbelief that it is finally here.

There is always new adventure during our beach house excursions.  Last Easter Weekend we got the van stuck in sand, spotted a baby cormorant and enjoyed chocolate for the first time after Lent.  And amazingly, the weather was warm enough during one afternoon for two of the kids to don their bathing suits and skim.

Wireless is always “iffy” in Corolla.   Perhaps I should rephrase that.  Corolla has wireless, however, I don’t PAY for it when we are there.  We simply sit on the couch in a certain spot, turn our mouths just right and grab a bit of wireless from the neighbor next door.

I will certainly recap the weekend whenever I can, however you can follow our adventures live through Twitter at @shootmenowblog .  I hope I will be able to post pictures of LIVING deer this time.  Don’t get me wrong… I love Mr. Bigglesworth.  But Mama Deer and her twin babies are just a bit more, well – active.

Don’t forget to friend me on Twitter at @shootmenowblog to keep up with our latest Corolla adventures!

  • Sounds awesome! Have a great time.

    • THANKS! For me it is like “going home.” And I don’t feel I need to get projects done around the house, weed the garden etc.. it is just a time to give the kids my full attention. Of course I cook/clean up, and then the BIG clean up before we go… but for hours on end we just say, “What do you want to do! Beach walk? Trail exploring? Board game? Look for persimmons?” It is a great time to unwind and just be MOM. 🙂

  • Gosh, I’m so envious! I will be with my family this weekend so that’s great, but it would be a little better at the beach. Have a great time!

    It sounds like a great time, kids and mom (your mom). What a great way to unplug and re-center. Have a great time!

  • Have a fantastic time. Guess you are already there. I am always a little behind in things. Can;t wait to hear all about the trip. I do hope you see some real deer.

  • I’m soo jealous! Have an awesome vacation!
