Have fun will travel...

We set off on our long lourney to Utah yesterday for my brother's wedding. The trip was sooo fun!!! My mom rented a minivan and we packed it full with all the essentials, including the best car food ever (thanks, mom). We all rotated on the driving. While I was driving, my mom was in the back seat entertaining Kaitlin. That was the best part of the whole trip. They rigged up a temporary stage by tying a blanket from one ceiling handle to the other. I almost drove off the road from laughing at the antics of Meemo and Kaitlin. When the curtain was up, Kaitlin would coach Meemo on how to introduce her. Whispering very seriously, "Meemo, this is what you say- now very loudly- 'Ladies and Gentlemen! Now presenting Kailtin Annabritt Graham, with 5 little speckled frogs!!!' Now, that's what you say, Meemo." Then, the two would go off with their singing and laughing and goofing off. The drive seemed so short. Time flies when you're havin' fun. At one rest stop, we went to Arctic circle- this is holy ground. I always get the halibut, onion rings and cherry coke. This place is holy ground because there's so much grease, it sends you to an early death. On the way out, we paused to look at a Hostess Snack display. I saw a Snowball (a chocolate cupcake, covered in marshmallow coated in pink coconut) for the first time. I have only seen those things in the movies, so it was a milestone for me. As we were circling the ample display, my mom shouted, "Look! They even have Croca- doodles!!!" Now, look at this picture and tell me if they're called Croca-doodles...


We laughed so hard that it warranted a picture and gratuitous razzing.
