5. Hawaii-Another family trip the summer of my 7th grade year. My dad used to travel a TON for work. He earned frequent flier miles. So much so that we were all able to fly to Hawaii for a week for free. We stayed on Oahu the majority of the week, but took a little plane to the big island to see the lava. While there we also saw lava and lava, and oh! a little bit of lava. The highlight of the trip for me was wearing a tie-dyed dress with a big wooden fish necklace. I was hot.
Have you noticed that all of these trips took place prior to the birth of any children? Yes. That's because SINCE the birth of my children, I have not gone more than an hour away. Do you think I am joking? No. You read it right. One hour. Anyway, we are nearly halfway there. Jeez. This is taking forever. Okay, now I am really speeding it up especially since I am going to have to start listing Wal-Mart as a place I have visited. I am running out of places.
6. St. Louis-Went up the arch in the strange little compartments. Did NOT like the swaying motion once I was up there. Won't be doing that again.7. Lake Michigan-Obviously I didn't stay IN Lake Michigan, but I can't remember the name of the town we stayed in. It was quite amazing to be at a lake, all the while thinking I was at a beach. Sun, sand, waves, it was awesome. It wasn't quite warm enough to really convince me it was a true beach, but beautiful nonetheless.
8. Marengo Cave-Took a weekend road trip with Farm Guy and another couple. I didn't think I would like caves, but it was actually pretty cool. 58 degrees to be exact...
10. Pennsylvania-Went with an ex-boyfriend to his sister's wedding. Man, I am getting desperate here.
11. King's Island-We have gone to King's Island in Cincinnati many times. We actually did go here once since having kids (although we left them with Grandma and Grandmpa.) They were too little for anyone to enjoy themselves. I love roller coasters! Surprising since I do not do well with heights. Weird, huh?!
12. Louisville, Kentucky-I have been here several times but don't quite remember what we did there. Shopping?
13. RCA Dome, Indianapolis, IN-Back before the Colts were any good, I went to a game at the RCA Dome. Actually, it was still called the Hoosier Dome at that time. What a sad way to end this post.
There you have it. I hope you're happy. My laundry is overtaking the house. Dishes are piling up. Litter box is smelly. What do I spend an hour doing? I need to get my priorities straight. Yeah, right.
