View from the Passenger Seat.

3.07.2011

Roadtrips are my favorite.
I used to get really car sick and I hated driving, but now that a front-seat-passenger-sitter with full temperature control, reclining ability and an VERY attractive boy to look at--my roadtrip opinion has soared through the roof and onward to the moon. 

Now, the only thing I have a problem with now is the inability to pull over every time I see a beautiful scene (which may or may not be approximatively every 6 minutes...) I guess 'through-the-window pictures' will have to do for now.
Roadtrips are even more fun when you pull over to get gas and you run into your friends!
We had such a good time playing games all day with the Chipmunks and staying up late chatting with Christian  and Stephanie. I especially loved the midnight crepes full of fresh fruit, lemon juice, powdered sugar, whipped creme and Nutella! Mmmm
Favorite quotes from the kids:
Oliver: "Hey Ashley, after this round, don't you just feel like going outside and getting some wind on our bodies?"
Claire: "Can't you guys just stay for...5 more months?"
"Um Dad, I need to borrow five-hundred dollars."

We actually had so much fun, that we stayed an extra night. 
And seeing as they have the most comfy guest bed on the planet, it was a good choice, indeed!
Did you have a great weekend?
What was the highlight?

Those kids are adorable!

The highlight of my weekend was probably stopping into the soon-to-be-closed-down Border's by my fiance's house and finding two great books for only $1 each! It was very exciting :)

I need to try that line on my dad, 500 dollars would be real helpful to me. Probably not as endearing coming from a a relatively grown-up child. haha. Glad you had a good weekend and road trip. Knob control is imperative to a good drive.
