I leave tomorrow for (in my mind) the trip of a life time. There are five of us, my mom (El Jobean, Fl), my sister(Humble, TX), her daughter(St. Louis, MO), my daughter(Cedar Rapids, IA) and myself (Illinois City, IL) who are trying to make an annual outing happen each year. This year is my sister's 50th or as we are calling it "1/2 Century Celebration" (she's the one in the middle). She has rented a beach house right on the gulf in Galveston, TX. My mom and niece are already there and my daughter and I leave tomorrow for a whole week, yup, 7 days, of nothing but relax on the schedule. Of course, that's what we intend, but usually something exciting happens when we get together. Like the time we were all at my mom's in Florida for her birthday. We were heading shopping and we got a flat tire. It wasn't but 5 minutes and The Harley Boys from a bike rally across from where we pulled off, came to rescue us. Of course, that meant photo op time when they found out it was my mom's birthday. Kind, wonderful gentlemen, dressed in leather for the day. They were actually doing a Toy-a-thon for under privileged kids so we decided to contribute to their cause and thanked them for the quick response to 5 girls in trouble with a tire. Here's some pics from Florida Trip. So I will have pics when I get back in a week and I will guarantee a few stories to tell. See ya then.
