Hitting the Road

Yep, I am hitting the road again.  This time, via car.  And my three boys.  Noah, Lucas, Elijah and I are headed home to Wisconsin to visit my family.  It'll be a quick weekend, but one I am looking forward to immensely.

First, there will be Friday Night Fish Fry.  Where I come from, there is always fish fry.  It's not a lent thing.  Since moving up here to the Twin Cities, I've found I have to cross back into Wisconsin for a good fish fry.  Sad, but true.

The second cool thing about the trip - my brother in law is willing to show my boys how to fish.  We took Noah when he was little so I doubt he remembers much.  I like to fish and all, but this will be perfect...  the guys will fish and my sister and I can sit and talk.  Rock on. 

Third, and the best part, seeing my family.  When I come home we usually manage to get everyone together for at least one meal.  That is the best part of going home for me.  All of us together, joking, eating, playing games or just sitting around and talking.

The worst part of the trip...  this:

Ah, travelling with kids!  I have a portable DVD player and I know where the McDonald's with playlands are located.  I think we'll manage after all!!  See y'all on Monday.  I hope you all have some exciting weekend plans!
