peeing pants and rocking chairs, but no geriatric jokes
we always stop at a gas station about 1.5 hours away from my parents' house when we go up for a visit. our little bladders can't take it anymore, and this gas station is strategically placed at this exact location for a reason. apparently no one else's bladders can take anymore either, because the place is always packed. and as if the 5.5 hour drive isn't enough sitting, my children decided they had to partake in the rocking chair action.
we had a grand ol' time. i lost control of my segway early on in the tour and nearly peed my pants. there was shouting and screeching and tears. what can i say? i'm a wuss. from then on, i was pretty close to the last one to get anywhere. back of the line, that's me. safe and sound. no peeing.
the hubs had a great time. he did everything the tour guide did, including trying to lift up his feet while riding, using no hands, and weaving in and out of traffic. yep. the hubs. a safety buff if i ever saw one.
stay tuned for more on our exciting adventures, which include but are not limited to: legoland discovery center and great wolf lodge. it was a howlin' good time. yep. that just happened.
