Road Trip - Day 1 Recap

We had a great trip to Kalamazoo yesterday. Jana and Niloc had put together the perfect playlist. We rocked out to Dave Grohl, cruising down the 401. We came to love satellite radio. We planted our trees at a rest area outside of London.

Despite our concerns, MotherBumper made it through customs (where the officer flirted with us shamelessly I might add).

We stopped to meet Joy and her lovely family. She revived us with wine and cheese.

We finally arrived at Kalamazoo at about 10 pm (it is not easy to find somewhere for dinner and drinks at Kalamazoo at 10 pm). Luckily our hotel driver stepped up and kindly chauffeured us around (and angled for an invite to Chicago).

I got to sleep with Sandra who forgot her pajamas. ;)

Soon we’re hitting the road again. Chi-town, here we come!

not trying to be critical, just helpful...

when you're holding the camera in your hands, press the button half-way and wait for something on your screen to turn green (not yellow, not red, GREEN). This will allow us who are not at BlogHer to avoid feeling like we're watching through a plate glass window that has been smeared with vaseline (unless, of course, there is that much vaseline at BlogHer, in which case, uh, nevermind.)

Okay, this is just too painful for words.

Why am I staying home again?

Oh, yeah. Daughter's birthday. (Whatever.)
