Last week, the McFamily took one last road-trip, travelling with McDaddy on business before the start of school, which by the way, started on Friday because apparently the box of rocks over at the Board of Education decided that was a good day to start.
Just crown me the queen of Run-On sentences!
We left Monday morning at O’Dark Thirty and headed west. The boys enjoyed swimming three times a day in the pool and I enjoyed not having to do laundry, clean house or COOK for the week. It was a win-win for everyone, except maybe McDaddy because instead of packing one bag and cranking the stereo up and having the TV and bed all to himself, he had to pack half the house, and barely ever got to control the remote.
We returned home on Thursday just in time to attend Open House at the school and then on Friday McDaddy and turned right back around and attended a military-sponsored Marriage Retreat called Strong Bonds at a beautiful resort a few hours from home.
Here’s a photographic review of our crazy fast on-the-road week.

And before you get your panties in an uproar I realize the bottom row is all jacked up. Thankfully, we weren’t playing in the International Billiards Competition.

Phew! Told you we were busy.
