Tom's 1st...

"business trip"!!!!!

Every summer I take at least one of the kiddos on an overnight business trip with me! This was Tom's first time and I couldn't have asked for a better travel partner! Now, I say business trip VERY lightly. Yes... I actually DO get a little work done while we're away... but mostly, the trip is about a little one on one time with whichever kiddo gets to come along. With three in the house, time with just one is limited... so its a really really special thing to get almost a full 2 days alone with any of them!

Our very busy work schedule included: the consumption of massive amounts of gum, root beer, hamburgers, candy, and "junky cereal". A couple of trips to the community pool as WELL as the hotel pool, breakfast in bed while watching cartoons, dinner in a "fancy" restaurant, burping and farting REALLY loud, more gum, romping at the river park and more burping. That's what happens when you travel with a workaholic like myself... MASSIVE amounts of work! We had a great time and I'm sure both of us will remember it for year's to come!

Training continues as normal... which means light and easy. I'm a bit uh... BORED! But I know that this is exactly what my family and I need right now

In the spirit of light training and family time... we'll all be taking off today to go hug MORE trees! Literally. We'll be living in a treehouse for the next 4 days! Isn't that COOL!? I'm SO excited!

Hope you're all happy and healthy! Thanks for reading!<

Breathe...

p.s. Is it just me, or does everyone occationally want to take a long road trip in a convertible along the coast while singing REALLY loud and smoking cigarettes? I'm just askin...

Wow - if that's a business trip...I want to be in your line of work!!!
Sounds like a fun trip - enjoy yourselves.
And...in response to your P.S., I love that kindof stuff.....loud singing to the music from the 80s, 90s and today (lol), wind in the hair, smokin heaters and stopping for the occasional photo op.
Yep - I'm in!

Been out of the loop for a while, great pics of the family.

Farts and burps don't go over so well with girls but I'm working on them, one burp and fart at a time.

Cheers bro!!!

My business trips usually involve glitter and $5 bills.
