It was quite the trip. 10 of us in 2 cars on a 2 day trip. My sister and I serenaded Frank and Tommy with Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, and Sir Mix-a-lot. I still haven't been able to convince her to let me post the video. My two year old niece was such a champ and watched Ponyo about 800 times on her little DVD player and at every rest stop would say "Get me outta here!". When we finally got to our hotel for the first night we realized it was most definitely the kind of place where people "live". That part was fun. My mom booked the hotel before we left New York but when we got there and realized that everyone was hanging over the balcony watching us unload our car, and the rooms smelled like cigarettes and sex...we hightailed it out of there and found a Red Roof Inn a mile down the road. Not before my sisters boyfriend sprawled out on the bed and turned the T.V on though, content to share his bed with bed bugs and remnants of other unmentionables.
I was convinced Frank would propose to me there, but then again I'm convinced he is going to propose to me on every vacation, holiday, birthday, and outing. (I'm only half kidding...)
