Weekend Recap

Things I learned this weekend:

  • Backroad Brewery makes a damn fine IPA!
  • Check the parade program before ducking into the ladies' room, lest you totally miss the Parade Grand Marshall and your chance to chant "ROO-dee! ROO-dee!" at him.
  • If you have to muck about with the garbage disposal, always use your non-dominant hand (fortunately, this was not a lesson learned by experience).
  • The two-lane drive-thru of the LP Micky D's is a parking lot around 8am.
  • Violet loves her some time in the pool.
  • "Glory, Glory, Hallejulia" is a perfectly acceptable song to play over a grocery PA in some parts of the country. Unfortunately, it makes me break out into imaginary hives.
  • Apparently, everyone except us is playing cornhole.
  • Even I can become the bumbling drive-thru idiot when confronted with a completely unfamiliar menu (read: maybe a pescatarian isn't the best person to place a large order @ KFC).
  • New favorite phrase: "douchey wife."
Things I was reminded of this weekend:
  • There are parts of the country where people are not afraid to wear their religio-political views on their sleeve.
  • Smoking indoors = STINKY.
  • Flag cakes will never go out of style.
  • How fun, hilarious, and awesome my family is.

Families are the best thing that we humans ever invented. The next thing was IPA.

This is what I learned:
1) babies make you clap alot and say "yeeeeaaaahh" in a high pitched voice.
2)the blue angels + babies = earmuffs and a still pissed off mommy.
3)nothing can beat four generations of rockin' ladies
4) Vi is the current UFC play pen champ, but we demand a rematch!!!!!!

Cornhole! That game is from my neck of the woods. I think it's popularity is due to the fact that it can (and in some cases must) be played with a beer in one hand :)
