Okay so previous to now we have only taken one other family "fun" trip, which was to go and see jake and stephanie (jake was casey's college roommate at bama)
Well this weekend for casey's 24th bday we are headed to tuscaloosa for the bama vs. arkansas football game. you may ask what's the first step in this process??
Calling the most succulent bakery in all of tuscaloosa, Mary's Cakes and Pastry's and order a bear bryant, houndstooth cake... then figure out where we are staying... that will be with stephanie's precious little sis, ashley... then figure out where we will tailgate. TBD.. i have an idea but we shall see...
So on this mecca trip we have several bits on our agenda, relax, scream so loud that we loose our voices, eat some good food, pray over bear bryant's grave(j/k every one else in tuscaloosa sets up a shrine that reminds me of something that muslims pray to) ps. i dont care who you are acting like the bear is still alive is creepy... let the great be dead and that be that.
now on to the other important things, like, making sure baby has a movie to watch in the car that will put her to sleep, we are borrowing grammy and poppy's dvd player till we can find one for us but i am glad to say that she is pretty pumped about barbie, the princess and the pauper.
then i need to pack the video camera, sheets, blowup mattress, casey's clothes, write out instructions for the dog. (for those of you that dont know luke seriously runs the roost at our house, this dog comes and gets us about 9:30 every night and wants us to perform the turndown service in our bed so he may retire at a timely hour of the night; like 10:20 is that much later, whatever dog you always get your way)
Then theres the clean the pond pump, feed the fish, blah blah blah........ what has my life come to.....
And if i have time, pack clothes for myself, i am officially wornout and i havent even begun this process, stay posted for how everything went
