Since you’ve been gone…

Not only is that the title of a song by Kelly Clarkson, who I’m secretly a fan of (well it used to be a secret) but I have also been gone for the last 3 weekends. Off doing interesting things. Florida, Fredricksburg, Atlantic City, New york City. Each one of these trips deserve it’s own entry. But let’s be honest here… I’m not going to get to all of them. I’ve decided to try to do the highlights and see where that takes me.

Let’s start with Tallahassee Florida. I was tired of Teresa not coming back to Virginia to see everyone, so I decided that I would take a little vacation down to see her.

Trip Highlights :

  • Seeing Teresa again!
  • Meeting Jamal, and finding out he wasn’t a brother
  • meeting a 40yr old plumber who plays Halo2 and getting his Xbox Live name,
  • Almost seeing a house fall off a trailer on the road to St. Georges Island,
  • Getting really wierd sunburns cause I didn’t ask Teresa to put lotion on my back,
  • Going out to Bullwinkles on Sunday night,(3 dollar pitchers)
  • Puking out the car door on the way to a cookout on monday (good times).
  • Flight getting cancelled on Monday and flying out Tuesday morning
  • Going straight from the airport to work! yeah!

If I find the pictures I’ll link to them here!

I already wrote about Fredricksburg (see Tiny Tent story) But I did manage to find a few pictures from that night. Top 5 here I thought I took many more, but I guess all the drinking will make you think that.

Nueva York Trip! I wasn’t going to go on this one because money is a little tight, cause we’re moving into the new house. But I knew that it would be a great time. Wade had been biking towards New York from Richmond for about 10 days and He was finally going to get there on Friday. So we were going to meet him. At about 10pm on Friday night we get the great Idea to also stop by Atlantic City on the way up there.
