Holiday Road

Check ya later, Ladies and Germs! We're off for the Annual Urban Family Road Trip.

Tomorrow, I have an 8am eye doctor appointment to see how the bionic eyes are coming along (left eye is great, right eye still a bit fuzzy). Then we load up the U-Kids and head to Best Namma Ever!'s.

We plan to blow up her front yard. You see, you can buy fireworks in Missouri! Last year, Urban Dad was so excited by this prospect that he came out of a fireworks tent with two large grocery bags of rockets, firecrackers, roman candles, etc. After a quick stop at Lowe's for a length of pipe, he spent the evening happily blowing it all up in front of my mom's house. Honestly, do men really ever get past 12-years-old?? But it was a hit. This year, the neighbors asked my mom if he was coming back -- they want to make sure to watch. The Pink Power Ranger is bringing over some fireworks she has stashed away too.

By the way, when people ask Urban Kid 1 how we're spending the 4th, she says, "we're going to blow up Grandma's front yard."

After a few days of mooching free child care off of BNE! (yes, we're good at that), we'll pack it all up again and head to Colorado to visit the MIL. Pray for us.

Once we get out there, we'll decide the next step. Keep going west? C'mon back home? We haven't decided yet.

I'll try to post as I can.

Happy July 4th to ya!!!!!

I'm lovin' the Griswald theme! Maybe you can "Imogene Coca" your MIL and tie her to the top of your (wood paneled) family-mobile!

Good luck with the explosives, ahem, fireworks.

We'll be blowing up my brother's trailer this weekend. It's a beautiful thing.

Blowing up our yard too! Eating ourselves sick and blowing stuff up - what could be better? Have a safe and sane trip.
